API has released the second edition of its Standard 1130 covering computational pipeline monitoring systems (CPMs) for liquid pipelines. The publication covers the design, implementation, testing and operation of CPM systems, whose primary function is to assist the pipeline operator in detecting releases. This early warning then allows the operator to undertake an immediate investigation, confirm the reason for the CPM alarm, and initiate a response when it represents an operational upset or release. The DOT’s liquid pipeline safety rules have incorporated section 4.2 of this standard at 49 CFR 195.134. For additional information contact Andrea Johnson, Standards, 202-682-8107 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
