OFFSHORE PIPELINE FACILITY SAFETY PRACTICES. VOLUME I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This report presents an evaluation of the state-of-the-art of the design, construction, operation and maintenance of offshore pipeline facilities, an identification of potential hazards to operation, and a review of selected pipeline safety regulations. This report includes an appraisal of existing domestic and foreign practices, a determination of their adequacy for assuring safe operation, and an analysis of the need for additional research and development and of the need for regulatory changes or other action by Federal agencies and/or industry to guarantee safe operation of offshore pipeline facilities. The conclusions and recommendations are based on an evaluation of the experiences and information gathered from both domestic and foreign sources, combined with a literature search and review of existing codes and procedures relating to offshore pipelines.
