field butt welding of pipe and/or components required by CSA Standard Z662, Oil and Gas
Pipeline Systems.

Date:

September 23,2013

Normative References: This welding procedure specification was prepared in accordance


to CSA Z662-11 and incorporates by undated references, provisions from other
publications. Revision to this specification is not required unless subsequent referenced
code and or specification additions include changes to essential welding variables.
Service Restrictions: Sweet or Sour
Temperature Restrictions:

Temperatures not requiring notch toughness properties.

1.

WELDING PROCESS & METHOD

The surfaces to be welded shall be smooth, uniform, free of fins, laminations, tears, scale,
slag, grease, paint or other foreign matter, which may adversely affect the welding.
5.

POSITION & DIRECTION OF WELDING


a)
Position: Pipe horizontal, rolled or fixed position
b)
Direction of Welding: Vertical down

6.

PREHEATING, INTERPASS TEMPERATURE & CONTROLLED COOLING


a)
Butt Welds: A minimum preheat temperature of 1DoC shall be applied to an area
at least 50 mm on each side of the weld joint for its entire circumference prior to
welding.
b)
Repair Welds: A minimum preheat temperature of 120C shall be applied to an
area at least 150 mm from any point to the area to be repaired.
If the interpass temperature falls below the minimum preheat temperature, the entire weld
joint shall be heated to the minimum preheat temperature prior to starting the next weld
pass.
The maximum interpass temperature shall not exceed 200C. Preheating may be applied
by oxy-fuel torch, propane torch, electrical induction coils or any other method approved
by the owner. Temperature of the joint shall be verified using temperature indicating
crayons, thermocouples, pyrometers or other suitable method.
Where applicable, precautions shall be taken through the use of insulating covers or other
means to control the cooling rate of the weld after any pass.

7.

POSTWELD HEAT TREATMENT


Welds prepared in accordance with this specification shall not be subjected to postweld
heat treatment.

CHARACTERISTICS
Current Type: Direct current, reverse polarity
Voltage, amperage & travel speed: See Table #1
Heat Input: See Table #1

Minimum number of root & second pass welders: One


String or Weave Bead: Root & Hot Pass: String, Fill & Cap: String or Weave
Number of Weld Layers: Three layers minimum
Type of line-up clamp & removal: Internal line-up clamps shall be used wherever
practicable and shall not be removed until the root bead has been completed.
When external line-up clamps are used, the root bead shall be uniformly spaced
around the circumference of the joint and, where practicable, shall have a
cumulative length of at least 50% of the circumference prior to removal.
Cleaning methods:
Hand or power tools may be used. Each pass shall be
thoroughly cleaned and free of slag and scale prior to depositing the next weld
layer. The completed weld shall be brushed and free of spatter.
Filler and Finish Beads and Finish to be achieved: The hot pass shall be started
as soon as possible after the completion of the first pass. The completed weld
shall have a substantially uniform cross-section for its entire circumference. The
crown of the weld shall not be below the surface of the adjacent base metal.

10.

REMOVAL AND REPAIR OF DEFECTS


Repairable defects shall be removed by grinding. The minimum length of any
repair shall be 50 mm. Welding shall be performed following the details outlined in
this specification.
