Some Hints to Develop Particular Line Pipe Specification
PERTAMINA HULU MAHAKAM, RPE Division, Balikpapan, Indonesia
When procuring the carbon steel line pipe for pipeline project, frequently the purchaser refers to the international standards/specifications such as API SPEC 5L without any particular requirements. Many users thought these standards/specifications already addressed what are needed in their project; but unfortunately it is not completely true. The specification such as API SPEC 5L clearly mentioned in the special notes section that the users should not rely exclusively on the information contained in the specification and it is users’ responsibilities to define the product characteristics which meet the design criteria and suitable for the construction and the operation of the installation (e.g. pipeline). Through this paper, the author tries to give some ideas on particular specification for line pipe.
