Announcing the publication of AMPP Guide 21569-2024, Guidance on Implementing Corrosion Control Methodologies to Align with New PHMSA Regulatory Procedures
In August 2022, PHMSA revised the Federal Pipeline Safety Regulations to improve the safety of onshore gas transmission pipelines (PHMSA Regulation Identifier Number (RIN) 2137-AF39 – Pipeline Safety: Safety of Gas Transmission Pipelines: Repair Criteria, Integrity Management Improvement, Cathodic Protection, Management of Change, and Other Related Amendments). The regulation is expected to reduce the frequency and consequences of failures and incidents involving onshore gas natural gas transmission pipelines through early detection of threats to pipeline integrity, including those resulting from corrosion or extreme weather events. Additionally, revisions to the regulation address several other areas, including managing change processes, corrosion control, and criteria to repair pipelines.
AMPP Guide 21569 will assist pipeline operations with implementing corrosion control methodology required by the regulation. This document provides industry consensus on how to implement the new regulations. In addition to corrosion control, this guide addresses some operations, maintenance, and integrity management sections of the new regulation. Since operating companies need to incorporate the RIN 2 requirements into systems, processes, and procedures, this guide recommends procedures to comply with the new corrosion requirements using proven tools and techniques to monitor and protect these gas pipelines safely.
New AMPP Publications Style Manual:Standards - First Edition
The AMPP Publications Style Manual: Standards, First Edition will replace the NACE Publications Style Manual and the SSPC Standards Development Manual previously used for the development of AMPP/NACE/SSPC Standards documents. This new manual contains style guidelines for AMPP Standards Committee (SC) publications, whether printed or electronic, including word usage, punctuation, spelling, typography, arrangement, layout, format, and organization.
As of January 1, 2024, all AMPP Standards documents not already in balloting will follow the style and format of the new AMPP Publications Style Manual: Standards. The Staff Liaisons will assist with converting any in-progress draft to the new draft template when drafts are submitted to editing for pre-ballot review.
A copy of the AMPP Publications Style Manual: Standardsand training resources are available on the AMPP Standards Resources webpage
