Abstract: Penspen developed the Pipeline Defect Assessment Manual (‘PDAM’) as a Joint Industry project for a group of 19 sponsors. This manual provides detailed guidance on the assessment of pipeline defects, and is considered to define ‘best practice’. The manual is detailed and is suitable for engineers with experience of pipeline engineering and defect assessment to use. Penspen has since developed a number of pipeline specific defect evaluation procedures for use by experienced field technicians. These procedures provide a bespoke interpretation of PDAM for a specific pipeline, enabling the rapid and reliable assessment of defects found in the pipeline. Penspen has also completed a number of pipeline emergency repair studies, aimed at ensuring that pipeline operators can identify severe defects, and complete an appropriate repair as quickly as possible. Based on our experience of developing these procedures we have identified the need for an international recommended practice or standard to help pipeline operators to safely assess defects they find in their pipelines and to select appropriate repairs.

This paper presents an outline of an international recommended practice for pipeline defect assessment and repair for discussion by the industry.
