Well Pad - Alberta On-Lease Jurisdictional Breaks - D077, Safety Codes Act, Oil & Gas Act

Well Pad - Alberta On-Lease Jurisdictional Breaks - D077, Safety Codes Act, Oil & Gas Act

Client is suggesting CL900 ANSI piping from wellhead to midway into a control skid (throttling, switching valves, etc.) where the remaining piping would spec. break to CL600 ANSI. I should mention all the CL900 lines will be registered with ABSA (B31.3), as both the steam and production lines have the ability to be steam fed. The pad gathering headers are a CL600 system. Current layout is that the CL900 (well head to skid) piping would fall under the AB Safety Codes act, Jurisdictional break at the control skid to CL600 under the Oil & Gas Act. I know typically AER Directive 077 would be used to verify jurisdictional breaks for on-lease/off-lease pipelines. These lines are all on lease, do not leave lease until tied into gathering headers (CL600).

My question is under the Oil and Gas Act, can you consider the piping as a pipeline? Could you design to CSA Z662 or B31.3?
