IGEM Standards

All IGEM Standards are issued to industry and other stakeholders for review and comment prior to publication.

IGEM/UP/16 - DESIGN FOR NATURAL GAS INSTALLATIONS ON INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL PREMISES WITH RESPECT TO DSEAR

A draft of IGEM standard IGEM/UP/16 is available for comment. 

The draft can be found here and the comment form can be downloaded from here.

This draft for comment has been prepared by an IGEM Panel chaired by Geoff Winckles and is submitted to industry for its consideration and comment. 

Background

IGEM/UP/16 is primarily for designers of new industrial and commercial pipework systems, downstream of the primary gas meter installation. It will also be useful for site occupiers who have the responsibility for compliance with DSEAR and for the production of site risk assessments for existing systems and new installations.


Deadline
Please provide your response or comments to thomas@igem.org.uk by 23rd November, 2018.

 

IGEM/TD/19 -  REINFORCED THERMOPLASTIC PIPELINES FOR HIGH PRESSURE GAS TRANSMISSION

A draft of IGEM standard IGEM/TD/19 is available for comment. 

The draft can be found here and the comment form can be downloaded from here.

This draft for comment has been prepared by an IGEM Panel chaired by Daniel Finley and is submitted to industry for its consideration and comment. 

Background
This procedure covers design, construction, testing, commissioning, operation and maintenance of pipe constructed from RTP material, buried, laid between points on land, with a MOP exceeding 7 bar and not exceeding 100 bar.

In general, the requirements of IGEM/TD/1 shall be followed, with additional guidance relating specifically to RTP pipe being provided by this Standard. It is noted that not all requirements of IGEM/TD/1 are appropriate to RTP pipe; however, it may be necessary to consider some aspects (e.g. cathodic protection) as part of the overall pipeline.

In some cases it has been necessary to reference IGEM/TD/3 as an example specification for the requirements of polyethylene (PE) liner materials.

Deadline
Please provide your response or comments to janem@igem.org.uk by 25th December, 2018.
