API RP 1174-2015 pdf free download.Recommended Practice for Onshore Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Emergency Preparedness and Response.
1 Scope This Recommended Practice (RP) provides to operators of onshore hazardous liquid pipelines a framework that promotes the continual improvement of emergency planning and response processes, including identification and mitigation of associated risks and implementation of changes from lessons learned. This RP assists the operator in preparing for a safe, timely, and effective response to a pipeline emergency. This RP applies to assets under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), specifically U.S. Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Parts 194 and 195. Operators of non-DOT jurisdictional pipelines or tank assets could make voluntary use of this document. This RP is not intended to apply to the following: a) post-response environmental remediation, b) exploration and production operations, c) offshore hazardous liquid pipeline operations, d) facility piping, or e) natural gas transmission and distribution pipeline operations. 2 Normative References The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document.
