Pipeline in service inspection standard

Pipeline in service inspection standard

There are some standards for in service inspection in ASME and API for piping ang piping component.

Is it possible to use these standard for Pipeline?

Thanks for your advise.

RE: Pipeline in service inspection standard

Which standards do you mean?

ASME B31G gives you some guidance and the design codes themselves offer some guidance on inspection.

Any particular aspect you're thinking of?

RE: Pipeline in service inspection standard

The difficulty in using API 570 for pipelines is that as afar as I can see they are based on being able to access the pipe material for visual and NDE such as UT, X ray etc.

Buried pipelines tend to make that quite hard.

section 9 of API 570 addresses buried piping which is similar to pipelines.

Your question though is quite vague and I don't really understand where you're coming from?

Are you looking for ways to interpret metal loss data? Then go for ASME B31G, even though it's a bit conservative I think.

But you need specialists for this task.

Your profession (Petroleum) implies the pipeline is for oil..

I will suggest you to develop in-house company standard for in service inspection ,and probably should address; pipeline repair,pipeline protection, Corrosion Control , row and site maintenance
,pipeline pigging,valve maintenance requirements, SCADA and system automation ....etc...

You may look to API 570,API 579-1 FFS-1, for specific items..

Good luck..
