IGEM Standards

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

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.

 

IGEM/SR/18 - SAFE WORKING PRACTICES TO ENSURE THE INTEGRITY OF GAS ASSETS AND ASSOCIATED INSTALLATIONS

A draft of IGEM standard IGEM/SR/18 - Safe working practices to ensure the integrity of gas assets and associated installations 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 Ian Foster and is submitted to industry for its consideration and comment. 

Representing industry bodies who wish to issue the draft to your members can either forward this email or invite them to visit the Technical Standards section of our website.

Background
This Standard provides guidance on safe working practices in the vicinity of gas assets and installations operating at all pressure tiers and are intended to ensure the continued integrity of gas assets.

The Recommendations include advice for both the operator/owner of the respective gas asset (hereafter referred to as the operator) and for the promoter/client responsible for the work.

These Recommendations also outline management procedures and safety precautions affecting the design, construction, maintenance and demolition of services, structures and other works in the vicinity of gas assets.

Deadline
