3.3. Process pipe sizing for plants located offshore

This section recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the sizing of a new piping system on production platforms located offshore. The maximum design pressure within the scope of this section is 69,000 kPa gauge (10,000 psig) and the temperature range is 29 °C (20 °F) to 343 °C (650 °F). For applications outside these pressures and temperatures, special consideration should be given to material properties (ductility, carbon migration, etc.).
The recommended practices presented are based on years of experience in developing oil and gas losses. Practically all of the offshore experience has been in hydrocarbon service free of hydrogen sulfide. However, recommendations based on extensive ...
