Petroleum and natural gas industries - Pipeline transportation systems

Executive summary

Requirements for pipeline transportation systems used in the petroleum and natural gas industries.

Abstract

Published at the end of December 2003, European standard BS EN 14161 specifies requirements and gives recommendations for the design, materials, construction, testing, operation, maintenance and abandonment of pipeline systems used for transportation in the petroleum and natural gas industries.

BS EN 14161:2003 supersedes BS 8010-1:1989, BS 8010-2.8:1992 and BS 8010-3:1993.

NB: BS EN 14161:2003 excludes flexible pipelines (ISO 13628-11Petroleum and natural gas industries-Flexible pipe systems for subsea and marine riser applications is being developed) or those constructed from other material such as glass-reinforced plastics; it does not apply to pipeline systems for the transportation of oxygen nor gas supply pipelines on land.

This European Standard specifies requirements and gives recommendations for the design, materials, construction, testing, operation, maintenance and abandonment of pipeline systems used for transportation in the petroleum and natural gas industries.

It applies to pipeline systems on land and offshore, connecting wells, production plants, process plants, refineries and storage facilities, including any section of a pipeline constructed within the boundaries of such facilities for the purpose of its connection.

This European Standard applies to rigid metallic pipelines. It is not applicable to flexible pipelines or those constructed from other materials such as glass-reinforced plastics. It excludes on-land supply systems used by the gas supply industry.

This European Standard is applicable to all new pipeline systems and may be applied to modifications made to existing ones. It is not intended that it should apply retrospectively to existing pipeline systems.

It describes the functional requirements of pipeline systems and provides a basis for their safe design, construction, testing, operation, maintenance and abandonment.

This European Standard does not apply to pipeline systems for the transportation of oxygen.

This European Standard is not a design manual; rather, it is intended to be used in conjunction with sound engineering practice and judgement. This European Standard allows the use of innovative techniques and procedures, such as reliability-based limit state design methods.
