scope:

This Code prescribes requirements for the design, materials, construction, assembly, inspection, testing, operation, and maintenance of liquid pipeline systems between production fields or facilities, tank farms, above- or belowground storage facilities, natural gas processing plants, refineries, pump stations, ammonia plants, terminals (marine, rail, and truck), and other delivery and receiving points, as well as pipelines transporting liquids within pump stations, tank farms, and terminals associated with liquid pipeline systems. (See Figs. 400.1.1-1 and 400.1.1-2.)

This Code also prescribes requirements for the design, materials, construction, assembly, inspection, testing, operation, and maintenance of piping transporting aqueous slurries of nonhazardous materials such as coal, mineral ores, concentrates, and other solid materials, between a slurry processing plant or terminal and a receiving plant or terminal (see Fig. 400.1.1-3).

Piping consists of pipe, flanges, bolting, gaskets, valves, relief devices, fittings, and the pressurecontaining parts of other piping components. It also includes hangers and supports, and other equipment items necessary to prevent overstressing the pressurecontaining parts. It does not include support structures such as frames of buildings, stanchions, or foundations, or any equipment such as defined in para. 400.1.2(b).

Requirements for offshore pipelines are found in Chapter IX. Requirements for carbon dioxide pipelines are found in Chapter X. Requirements for slurry pipelines are found in Chapter XI. Also included within the scope of this Code are

(a) primary and associated auxiliary liquid petroleum and liquid anhydrous ammonia piping at pipeline terminals (marine, rail, and truck), tank farms, pump stations, pressure-reducing stations, and metering stations, including scraper traps, strainers, and prover loops

(b) storage and working tanks, including pipe-type storage fabricated from pipe and fittings, and piping interconnecting these facilities

(c) liquid petroleum and liquid anhydrous ammonia piping located on property that has been set aside for such piping within petroleum refinery, natural gasoline, gas processing, ammonia, and bulk plants

(d) those aspects of operation and maintenance of liquid pipeline systems relating to the safety and protection of the general public, operating company personnel, environment, property, and the piping systems [see paras. 400(c) and (d)]
