API STD 1160
Managing System Integrity for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines
|Publication Date:||1 November 2001|
This standard is applicable to pipeline systems used to transport hazardous liquids as defined in Title 49 CFR 195.2. The use of this standard is not limited to pipelines regulated under Title 49 CFR 195.1, and the principles embodied in integrity management are applicable to all pipeline systems.
This standard is specifically designed to provide the operator with a description of industry proven practices in pipeline integrity management. The guidance is specific to the line pipe along the right-of-way, from scraper trap to scraper trap, but the process and approach can and should be applied to all pipeline facilities, including pipeline stations, terminals and delivery facilities associated with pipeline systems. Certain sections of this standard provide guidance specific to pipeline stations, terminals, and delivery facilities.
