The American Petroleum Institute (API) announced the publication of a first-edition standard providing a framework for pipeline operators to develop a comprehensive pipeline facility integrity management program to strengthen efficiencies, prevent incidents and further reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Recommended Practice (RP) 1188, Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Facilities Integrity Management, developed under API’s American National Standards Institute accredited program, outlines a “plan-do-check-act” cycle to carry out continuous assessment and improvement for a pipeline facility integrity program. This approach is considered best in class and is used to drive continuous operational improvement as in other API standards such as API RP 1173, Pipeline Safety Management Systems. This standard covers the integrity management of all pressure containing components directly used in the transport or storage of hazardous liquids within a liquids pipeline facility and is applicable to pipeline operators and integrity management inspectors.
