Draft Scope/Description:

1  Scope

1.1  General

This Document covers carbon steel pipe and components, where they are primarily intended for use in oil or gas pipeline systems, that are qualified for use as specified in Table 5.3 of CSA Z662 and as updated from time to time.  Requirements are written as applying to an operating company to standardize the minimum requirements to ensure the quality of pipe and components used in oil and gas pipelines.

The requirements are separated into two categories: general requirements that apply to all pipe and components within the scope, and additional requirements to specific pipe and components (see Clause 4 and Clause 5 respectively).

The following pipe and components are covered by this Document: electric-welded, submerged-arc-welded, and seamless pipe; fittings; flanges; and valves as specified in Table 5.3 of CSA Z662.

1.2  Excluded from scope

The following are excluded from this Document, where used for non-sour service:

a) Pipe and components that have a diameter below NPS 6; or
b) Pipe and components below grade 359 or equivalent.

1.3  Competency

This Document is intended to establish supplementary requirements and standards for governing the Quality Assurance of certain pipe and components during manufacturing and procurement for oil and gas pipeline systems. This Document is intended to be used by persons competent to make technical judgements in the areas to which this Document is being applied.

1.4  Terminology

In this Document, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Document; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Document.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
