RAPID SHUTDOWN OF FAILED PIPELINE SYSTEMS AND LIMITING OF PRESSURE TO PREVENT PIPELINE FAILURE DUE TO OVERPRESSURE. PART II. INDUSTRY SURVEY REPORT

The report covers the industry survey portion of a study to determine the state-of-the-art for (1) rapid shutdown of failed pipeline systems, and (2) limiting of pressure to prevent failure due to overpressure. Technical summaries of shutdown and pressure limiting systems and components were prepared. These cover current shutdown and pressure limiting practices by the industry (frequency of use of various methods and equipment), and technical descriptions and analyses of typical systems and components. Promising rapid shutdown equipment was identified and detailed summaries and analyses were prepared, including operator and carrier experience, performance and reliability data, advantages, disadvantages, manufacturers, and costs.
