API RP 1133
Managing Hydrotechnical Hazards for Pipelines Located Onshore or Within Coastal Zone Areas
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
This recommended practice (RP) applies to new and existing hydrocarbon pipelines that transport gas and hazardous liquids. It is intended to apply to onshore waterways and coastal zones that may be susceptible to hydrotechnical hazards. An onshore waterway is any man-made or natural channel through which water flows. Coastal zones extend offshore to a water depth of 15 ft and extend inland to include those areas of land influenced by tidal action, storm surge, back water flooding and other coastal hazards.
The RP provides guidelines and recommendations for identifying, assessing and managing risks to pipeline integrity associated with these hazards through the life-cycle of a pipeline. Except for the design and construction provisions in Section 7 of this RP which are strictly for new pipelines, this RP is for both existing and new pipelines.
