NEW IN 2008. Describes the basis of the liquid petroleum internal corrosion direct assessment (LP-ICDA) method and its four steps: (1) pre-assessment, (2) indirect assessment, (3) direct examination, and (4) post assessment. With the LP-ICDA approach, assessments can be performed on pipe segments for which alternative methods (e.g., in-line inspection, hydrostatic testing, etc.) may not be practical. This methodology may be incorporated into corrosion integrity and risk management plans. PRINTED HARD COPIES REQUIRE A MINIMUM OF 7-10 DAYS FOR PROCESSING BEFORE SHIPPING.
