CEN/TC 12 Materials, equipment and offshore structures for petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries

European Norm


This document specifies requirements and gives recommendations on the management of integrity of a pipeline system through the life cycle which includes design, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance and abandonment.
This document applies to onshore pipeline systems used in transportation in the petroleum and natural gas industries, connecting wells, production plants, process plants, refineries and storage facilities, including any section of a pipeline constructed within the boundaries of such facilities for purpose of its connecting. This document does not deal specifically with the integrity of non-pipe elements. The appropriate standard shall be referenced for the excluded elements. However, the impact on integrity related to the malfunction or failure of non-pipe elements shall be accounted for in the integrity management program.
The pipeline segment between the wellsite and the gathering station, treatment plant or process plant is included because of the management of the integrity of this segment. However, many mandatory components of this document may not be practical for this pipeline segment due to characteristics such as, diameter, operating parameters, etc.
This document applies to rigid, steel pipelines. It is not applicable for flexible pipelines or those constructed from other materials, such as glass-reinforced plastics. Pipelines are defined as those components of a pipeline system connected together to convey fluids between stations and/or plants, including pipe, launchers and receivers, components, appurtenances, isolating valves, and sectionalising valves.
This document may not cover all conditions and engineers competent in pipeline integrity are expected to evaluate whether additional requirements are warranted.
This document incorporates a combination of prescriptive and performance based requirements. In some cases where there are prescription requirements it provides the user the option to arrive at a solution using performance based requirements. The ability to use performance based solutions allows companies to use new equipment or innovative practices to achieve the same goal.
This document is used for integrity management which is initiated at the design and construction stage of the pipeline.
