WARNING — Reels and coils shall not be moved by rolling on ground. Serious injury or death could result. CAUTION — Reels and coils shall not be moved by rolling on ground. Property damage or damage to pipe on reel could result. 5.3 Receiving Visual Inspection The following requirements apply to reel and coil receiving visual inspection: a) The manufacturer shall provide the purchaser with visual inspection guidelines, acceptance criteria, and mitigation requirements (e.g., rejection, cutout, re-rounding) for pipe and feld-fttings. At a minimum, the visual inspection guidelines shall include criteria and mitigation requirements for the items listed in Table 1. b) The purchaser or purchaser’s agent shall conduct visual inspection of delivered pipe and feld-fttings per manufacturer-specifed guidelines at time of delivery and as transported. NOTE Conditions may limit receiving inspection to accessible portions of the packaged pipe. c) Prior to or during installation, visual inspection of all pipe and feld-fttings shall be undertaken by the installer. d) Visual inspection records shall be documented by the purchaser or purchaser’s agent and retained by the end user per Section 10. e) Any damage shall be mitigated after consulting with the manufacturer and/or according to manufacturer guidelines before installation. Mitigation records shall be documented per the requirements in 5.3.d).
5.4 Storage The following requirements apply to storage: a) The manufacturer shall provide guidelines for reel, coil, pipe, and feld-ftting storage as applicable, including: 1) handling MBR in accordance with API Specifcation 15S; 2) respooling MBR and allowable number of bending cycles in accordance with API Specifcation 15S; 3) limitations for weathering-related outdoor unprotected storage time frames if they exist; 4) preferred storage position of the goods and the consequence when stored in an undesirable position; 5) information for pipe supplied in coil form if applicable, including the maximum allowable number of coils that may be stacked. b) Reels, coils, and partially used reels and coils shall be stored per manufacturer-specifed guidelines. c) Reels and coils shall be stored on stable surfaces and secured to prevent rolling or overturning. d) Reels and coils shall not be stored on unstable or soft terrain such that reel sinking or coil leaning leads to loading on pipe. For storage areas susceptible to environmental conditions that could afect soil stability, the purchaser shall provide a means of preventing sinkage (e.g., railroad ties laid perpendicular to the reel cradles). In the case of sinkage, the afected pipe section shall be mitigated according to manufacturer guidelines; e) Empty reels shall be properly secured to prevent unwanted movement. 6 Pipeline Layout Planning 6.1 Layout Design The manufacturer shall provide the purchaser with the product properties and information specifed in API Specifcation 15S. NOTE It is important for route planning that the end user has the information necessary to conduct an analysis of system loads, if desired, based on operating temperatures, pressures, and cycling practices. The purchaser shall comply with manufacturer guidelines in pipeline layout designs and any additional requirements from applicable regulations. Where conficts exist, the purchaser should contact the manufacturer for assistance.6.1.1 Design Considerations The following design considerations apply to pipeline layout planning: a) During pipeline layout planning, the system designer appointed by the end user should consider the following factors (which may lead to stresses or pipeline movement): 1) thermal expansion and contraction (from anticipated temperature swings, including solar energy absorption of the pipe body); 2) pipe pressurization; 3) transient pressure efects (e.g., water hammer); 4) environmental hazards (e.g., fooding, fre, animals); 5) soil loading (e.g., vehicle loading, ground movement); 6) point loading (e.g., rocks or other pipes above or below the pipe); 7) connections between spoolable and rigid pipe and surface equipment; 8) pipeline anchor points, pipe supports, or thrust blocks. b) The end user shall consider risks associated with pipeline system design, with particular emphasis on failure mechanisms of surface lay pipe relative to a buried design. These failure mechanisms may include but are not limited to third-party damage, impingement with another object during pipeline shifting, fre, UV damage, or freezing. c) The end user shall consider risks associated with co-trenching with other pipelines or underground infrastructure (i.e., adequate separation distances to avoid loading or thermal interference and provide clearances for future maintenance).
