API RP 1166: Excavation Monitoring and Observation, Second Edition

API has published a new edition of Recommended Practice (RP) 1166 on monitoring and observation of excavations near energy pipelines. This RP provides a consistently applied decision making process for monitoring and observing of excavation and other activities on or near pipeline rights-of-way for “hazardous liquid” and “natural and other gas” transmission pipelines. The goal is to protect the public, excavation employees, and the environment by preventing damage to pipeline assets from excavation activities. Click here to purchase and download the new RP.
