Guidelines for the Identification of SCC Sites and the Estimation of Re-Inspection Intervals for SCCDA

Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) will develop a set of quantitative guidelines for predicting where and when SCC might be an integrity threat for gas and liquid hydrocarbon pipelines. These guidelines would complement other methodologies, such as the NACE RP0204, ASME B31.8S, and the CEPA Recommended Practices. These guidelines are aimed at improving the industry's ability to locate SCC in the field where the in-ditch protocols detailed in NACE RP0204 would be followed. In addition, the quantitative nature of the proposed guidelines would allow more-informed estimation of the re-inspection interval for repeat DA procedures.
