SNZ AS/NZS 2885.1
Pipelines-Gas and liquid petroleum Part 1: Design and construction
|Publication Date:||3 December 2018|
This Standard specifies requirements for design and construction of onshore carbon and carbon-manganese steel PIPELINE SYSTEMS that are used to transport single-phase and multi-phase hydrocarbon fluids, such as natural and manufactured gas, liquefied petroleum gas, natural gasoline, crude oil, natural gas liquids and liquid petroleum products.
The principles are expressed in practical rules and guidelines for use by COMPETENT PERSONS.
AS 2885.0 sets out the fundamental principles on which the AS(/NZS) 2885 series is based. These fundamental principles and the practical rules and guidelines set out in AS/NZS 2885.1, AS/NZS 2885.2, AS 2885.3, AS/NZS 2885.5 and AS/NZS 2885.6 are the basis on which an engineering assessment is to be made where these Standards do not provide detailed requirements appropriate to a specific item.
NOTE: AS/NZS 2885.4 for offshore submarine PIPELINE SYSTEMS is a standalone document. AS/NZS 2885.1 applies up to the shoreward limit of AS/NZS 2885.4. Pipelines that start and end onshore but include crossings of large waterways such as rivers, lakes and estuaries fall within the scope of AS/NZS 2885.1.
This Standard does not apply to design and fabrication of the following:
(a) Equipment for instrumentation, telemetering and remote control.
(b) Compressors, pumps and their prime movers and integral PIPING.
(c) Heat exchangers and pressure vessels (refer to AS 1210).
(d) PROPRIETARY items.
(e) Wellhead assemblies and associated metering, valves and PIPING.
(f) Casing, tubing or PIPING used in petroleum wells.
