Once the measurements have been verified, the pipeline integrity engineer is able to calculate whether the pipe is suitable for continued operation, or requires reduction in operating pressure and subsequent repair, dependent on the resulting maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP).
17, PHMSA said, "Many pipeline operators are expected to find the cost of using the alternative maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) to be too high.
PFIMSA has shown significant interest in materials documentation and verification to support the maximum operating pressure (MOP) and maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) calculations for gas and liquid lines, respectively.
1, 2000, through March 31, 2001, by operating parts of its pipeline at less than maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP).
The idea is for interstate companies to verify characteristics such as maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) and construction materials for what are called "grandfathered" pipelines--those coming before 1970 that have never had established MAOP.
When this happens, current OPS rules require the pipeline owner to do such things as confirm or revise the maximum allowable operating pressure. Sometimes pipe has to be replaced, or additional pressure tests performed.
A pipeline's maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) is determined by incorporating federal and state regulatory requirements into algorithms of the MAOP Validation Calculator.
Almost all of them suggest modifying maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP), for example.
Among the most significant of the bill's 31 sections is one related to maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP).
The maximum pressure along the pipeline is lower than the MAOP (Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure).
Data from the analysis was assessed using the LifeQuest[TM] pipeline software to determine the remaining strength factor (RSF) and reduced maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOPr) for every joint of pipe throughout the pipeline.
defects which normally make it necessary to restrict the maximum allowable operating pressure. The aim of the repair method is to restore pipe strength lost due to the defect and make the pipe as strong as in its previous, undamaged condition.
