Comment on draft standards

The final stage of the development and review process for technical standards is to publish a draft version for individuals and organisations from across the gas sector to review and comment on.

A list of the draft standards on which we are currently seeking comment is given below. Copies of these draft standards can be downloaded from the bottom of the page.

LP Supply Pressure Working Group - Recommendation for changes to working practice

IGEM’s LP Supply Pressure Working Group has developed a set of recommendations to address the concerns of the industry, which cover limits on the normal kW capacity of a domestic gas supply service, harmonise procedures for installing appliances and cover precommissioning, commissioning, post commissioning, conditions for reporting low pressure supply, how emergency service providers should respond. 

The Low Pressure Supply Working Group was formed by IGEM in response to a request from the Standards Consultation Forum (SCF) in 2016.

Below is the Draft for Comment "LP Supply pressure working group recommendation for changes to working practice” and the associated comment form.

Comment is required by 26 August to be e-mailed or posted to IGEM for the attention of Peter Hurst, Technical Officer; or IGEM, IGEM House, 26 & 28 High Street, Kegworth, Derbyshire. DE74 2DA.

IGEM/TD/12 Edition 3 - Pipework stress analysis for gas industry plant

The aim of this Standard is to ensure that piping systems are designed to withstand the stresses within them and to ensure that forces and moments applied to connected equipment and support structures are considered.

This Standard covers the stress analysis and calculation of loadings for welded and flanged pipework used in gas industry installations on, or connected to pipelines and is entirely dependent upon the application of other relevant codes and standards, appropriate to the system being designed, for example IGEM/TD/1, IGEM/TD/13, etc, to ensure overall plant integrity.

This standard covers stress analysis for pipework carrying gas at a maximum operating pressure (MOP) not exceeding 100 bar and at a temperature between -25oC and 120oC inclusive.

Please provide your response or comments to by 15th July 2019.
