Repair/Replacement Considerations for Pre-Regulation Pipe

This project will create guidelines for implementing and executing a pre-regulation pipeline repair/replace program. The guidelines will be tailored not only to natural gas transmission pipelines but to the special concerns associated with natural gas distribution pipelines and hazardous liquid pipelines as well. The resulting guidelines will be made suitable for inclusion in consensus pipeline safety standards including ASME B31.4 and ASME B31.8.
