FOREWORD
The Oil Industry in India is more than 100 years old. As such, a variety ofpractices have been in vogue because of collaboration/ association with differentforeign companies and governments. Standardisation in design philosophies ,operating and maintenance practices was hardly in existence at a national level.This, coupled with feed back from some serious accidents that occurred in therecent past in India and abroad, emphasised the need for the industry to reviewthe existing state of art in designing, operating and maintaining oil and gasinstallations.With this in view, the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas in 1986 constituted aSafety Council assisted by the Oil Industry Safety Directorate (OISD) forformulating and implementing a series of self regulatory measures aimed atremoving obsolescence, standardising and upgrading the existing standards toensure safer operations. Accordingly, OISD constituted a number of functionalcommittees comprising of experts nominated from the industry to draw upstandards and guidelines on various subjects.Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) has been used extensively as domestic fuel aswell as with industrial applications due to its unique properties and environmentalbenefits. The document on "LPG Bottling plant operations" was prepared in1994. The present document "LPG Installations" has been prepared by thefunctional based on the accumulated knowledge and experience of industrymembers and updation of national and international codes and practices relatedto LPG.
This document will be reviewed periodically for improvements based on thenew experiences and better understanding. Suggestions may be addressedto :
