Personnel protection shall be applied to non-insulated piping or equipment with an operating temperature of 70 C and higher, and extended to 2.0 m above and/or 0.8 m beyond any access or operating area. If personnel protection is required for surface temperatures 250 C. physical barriers such as protective metal sheeting/screens shall be used instead of insulation. For surface temperatures > 250 C, insulation shall be used for personnel protection; 4. 4.1 PIPING AND LAYOUT CRITERIA EQUIPMENT GENERAL Piping adjacent to equipment shall be arranged such that ample access is provided for maintenance, e.g. by cranes, forklift trucks, etc., and that removal and replacement of equipment, or parts of equipment, can be performed requiring minimal removal of the piping. Gussets, as per relevant piping standard, shall be installed to all connections 1 and smaller on piping to equipment subject to vibration. Piping systems in cryogenic service shall be kept as short as possible. 4.2 PUMPS Piping at pumps shall be sufficiently flexible and adequately supported to ensure that under no circumstances the nozzles of this equipment will be subject to stress that could disturb the alignment of the pump. Pump suction lines shall be as direct as possible and shall be free draining to the pump suction nozzle. Pockets in suction lines are not permitted, so as to avoid collection of vapor or gas. To avoid cavitation in horizontal centrifugal pumps of the double-suction type, sufficient straight length shall be provided immediately upstream the suction nozzle of the pump, so that equal flow distribution to both impeller sides is guaranteed. In addition, the first elbow in the suction line will have preferable a 90 angle to the pump shaft centerline. Eccentric reducers in pump suction lines shall be installed with the topside flat if suction header is located below the suction nozzle, or when suction header is located above the suction nozzle and a horizontal piece of suction line is installed between reducer and first elbow. Where necessary, provision shall be made to facilitate removal of internal elements, housing sections and strainers. For maintenance reasons, provision shall be made for draining the discharge and suction lines of pumps: Suction lines may be drained through pump casing. However, when eccentric reducers with topside flat are used in suction lines, such arrangement may require an additional drain. Vertical discharge lines shall be drained by a valved drain, connected to the check valve, or installed between the check valve and the first block valve.

Special draining and flushing hook-ups are required for pumps handling toxic, volatile or otherwise hazardous fluids. These will be indicated on the PEFSs. 4.3 COMPRESSORS Suction lines between knockout drums and compressors shall preferably be as short as practicable, without pockets and sloping downward towards the knockout drum. Where this is impossible, the low points shall be provided with a drain/trap to remove any possible accumulation of liquid. Pulsation dampeners or equipment with same effect, e.g. knockout drums, installed in suction and discharge lines of reciprocating compressors shall be located as close as possible to the compressors. Pulsation dampeners and piping between pulsation dampeners and compressors are normally part of compressor vendors scope. In compressor suction lines, temporary/permanent strainers shall be installed before start-up. Size shall be suction line size and they shall be installed in such a way that each one can be removed easily. Around each unit, enough spacing shall be provided for maintenance, dismantling, piston removal, crane access, etc. Break flanges shall be added when appropriate. The suction and discharge piping layout shall be checked by the compressor vendor if necessary. Piping to and from compressors shall be designed to keep vibration to a minimum. Avoid overhanging weight of pipe. Gussets are to be provided as per relevant piping standard to all connections 1 and smaller where required. 4.4 STEAM TURBINES Piping to and from turbines shall be designed in such a way that expansion forces and moments on the turbine flanges will be kept to a minimum, and vibration in the piping system shall be prevented. Ample spacing for crane access shall be provided for dismantling the turbine casing and lifting of the rotor. Liquid (condensate) in lines to the turbine shall be avoided by providing drip pockets and steam traps. Distance between the last drip pocket and turbine shall be minimum. 4.5 HEAT EXCHANGERS A spool piece or flanged elbow shall be provided in the piping to the channel nozzles, to allow removal of heads and to pull the bundle if applicable. Do not connect a valve directly to the channel side of the exchangers. Enough space in front of the channel side of the exchanger shall be allowed for pulling the tube bundles or cleaning fixed tube bundles with cleaning rods.

E-00000-PI-7737-0013

For heat exchangers installed at ground level (single or stacked), or installed on the top floor of a structure, no fixed maintenance equipment shall be provided. Heat exchangers with a removable tube bundle and installed between two floors of a structure, which can not be reached by a bundle puller will be provided with a monorail. 4.6 AIR-COOLERS To assure sufficient supply of air flow to fin fan coolers, a minimum clearance of 2.5 m or fan diameter shall be used between bottom of air inlet and the deck or floor on which the air cooler is installed. The effect of flooring (closed or open grating) shall be taken into account. Accessibility shall be provided for maintenance to the drivers and the in and outlet nozzles of the air coolers. No other equipment and pressure relief valves shall be installed underneath the total surface of air coolers. Keep flange connections below air coolers to a minimum. 4.7 FURNACES AND HOT OIL PIPING All piping around a furnace shall be arranged such that access to the burners, peepholes, observation windows, access doors, header box covers, etc. is maintained. Piping at the burner front shall be arranged in such a way that it does not obstruct insertion/removal of lighting torches and/or burner guns. Pipelines for liquid fuel, fuel gas, pilot gas, general service steam (steaming out and atomizing steam) and purge air around furnaces shall be by subheaders with block valves at the main header. In general, symmetrical piping should be designed for branches to burners. Smothering steam block valves and manifold must be located at a safe distance from the furnace, minimum 15 m. Downstream the block valve a weep hole of 6 mm diameter shall be provided at the lowest point. 4.8 PRESSURE VESSELS AND COLUMNS Design of piping shall be coordinated with process requirements of equipment to achieve an optimum nozzle position. Inlet nozzles shall be arranged such, to avoid the inlet stream impinging on the vessel wall, or against level and gauge glass connections. Interconnecting piping between vessels/columns without valves, may be considered as a part of the equipment and, therefore, may be subject to limitations and/or design requirements given by the applicable code and other regulations. This piping shall be marked on the PEFS in a manner, which distinguishes it from other piping. For stripping steam to towers the check valve, vent and block valve shall be located close to the tower in horizontal position to prevent condensate from entering the tower. Piping at columns should drop immediately when leaving the nozzle and run parallel and as close as practicable to the column itself.
