The Engineering Equipment and Materials Users Association (EEMUA) Publication 233, Line pipe Specification – clauses has been prepared as an addendum to API 5L/ISO 3183, based on EEMUA members’ specific requirements for both onshore and offshore line pipe materials.
Whilst API and ISO are well-established line pipe material standards, however they are inadequate to address some concerns. Hence, these documents are generally accompanied by a company specific addendum when line pipe is ordered.
EEMUA 233 has been prepared in order to present an addendum, covering the areas of concern, acceptable to EEMUA members, and the wider pipeline community.
Individual project requirements will inevitably lead to a number of specific testing requirements for individual pipelines, but EEMUA 233 is designed to accommodate these requirements whilst ensuring delivery of the highest possible quality line pipe.
