OPS issues Comprehensive Integrity Management Inspection Protocals on August 30, 2002.

These long awaited protocals cover more than 170 pages and include extensive lists of specific points and questions inspectors will be checking when auditing your Pipeline Integrity Management Plan. Details are the name of the game for these protocols. For example – Have the risk analysis results and information been documented and incorporated appropriately in other integrity management program elements? Or – Verify that the operator’s water transport analysis adequately and conservatively evaluates the effects of stream conditions, flow characteristics and water properties on water transport consequences. RCP is well qualified and prepared to give your plan a pre-autit prior to OPS’s inspectors arrival at your site. Give us a call and we can help you be ready this major regulatory event.
