Pipeline Integrity and DilBit, SynBit, and DilSynBit Research
Please provide the following:
Enbridge's concerns on the validity of the CanMetMATERIALS rotating cagetests and the results presented in theSummary of the Comparison Reportdue to the tests being performed atambient temperature and pressureconditions rather than pipeline
Enbridge does not question the validity of the findings by CanMetMATERIALS.Enbridge recognizes that there arechallenges inherent in bringing anyindustrial process into the laboratory, and that extraordinary results from one set of conditions to another must be donecautiously. However, trends at ambienttemperature and pressure can be expected to be similar to trends observed if the testing
Please provide the basis, and examples,where heavy crude and DilBit corrosivityresearch have shown that “
trends at ambient temperature and pressure can be expected to besimilar to trends observed if the testing were all performed at elevated pressures and temperatures
” as stated in the response.
