A11
b. 93% of pipe internal diameter for pipe sizes 20-inch and larger. Para. 11.7
*NOTE: Identify and Record each string that was internal gauged and
the results or findings. Record may be done in the Remarks section or
on a separate Report Form when available.

A valve site to valve site cleaning shall be performed before installing the
SAES-L-450,
A12 valves into the pipeline.
Para. 11.5
*NOTE: Identify pipe section cleaned: _______________________

SAES-L-450,
A string shall always be connected to each side of the anchor stub when

When a length of pipe is cut from a longer joint of pipe, all vendor
SAES-L-450,
A15 markings and other identifying information shall be transferred to each

Slings for lifting pipe shall be nylon or similar material to prevent damage SAES-L-450,
A16
to the pipe surface. Wire rope slings shall not be used. Para. 8.5

Internally coated pipe shall be handled from the outside diameter (O.D.) SAES-L-450,
A17
only. Para. 8.7

SAES-L-450,
A18 Pipe support elevations shall be maintained within 6 mm.
Para. 13.2

If support elevations are established during construction, the slope shall


be calculated from the actual support elevations and distances, and shall
comply with the limitations set forth in Table 2.

The pipe supports shall be installed on a stable base material to at least SAES-L-450,
A20
1.8 m in diameter and shall comply with SAES-Q-005. Para. 13.6

When a sufficient number of strings have been completed, the starting


end of the pipeline shall be tied in to a full thrust anchor or to a minimum SAES-L-450,
A21
of 600 meters of buried pipeline using a temperature tie-in weld. Para. 15.6.1
*NOTE: Temperature Tie-In Weld Inspection is per SAIC-L-2115.

Preformed cold field and/or shop bending of line pipe shall follow the
SAES-L-450,
A22 requirements of SAES-L-450, Appendix B verified through Checklist
Para. 10.7.1
SAIC-L-2114.

Vents and drains shall not be installed unless included in the approved SAES-L-450,
A23
design drawings. Para. 9.1

Installation of temporary vents and drains is not permitted without prior SAES-L-450,
A24
approval per section 6. Para. 9.2

B. Non-restrained pipelines:

Ring girders shall be installed within 6 mm horizontal and vertical SAES-L-450,


B1
tolerances. Para. 13.3

A string shall always be connected to each side of the anchor stub when SAES-L-450,
B2
the work is stopped at the end of the day. Para. 15.8

The bend radius shall be 5-D type if the pipeline is required to allow
SAES-L-450,
B3 passage of instrument scrapers. NOTE: Long radius elbows are the
Para. 10.2.1
standard methods for achieving horizontal bends.

For above ground pipelines at road crossings where preformed bends


are required, the bend angle and bite conformed with Attachment 1 SAES-L-450,
B4
(Table 1 - Maximum Localized Bend), of this checklist. Para. 10.8.1
* NOTE: Field bend shall be inspected per SAIC-L-2114.

The bend shall be located so that the peak of the bend is located SAES-L-450,
B5
between two pipe supports and does not reside on pipe supports. Para. 10.8.2

C2 place on the same day the section of the pipeline placed onto the
Para. 15.6.2
supports.

There shall always be at least 900 m to 1200 m of pipe attached to the

C3 line on skids or on the ground to restrain it during the night and cool
Para. 15.6.3
periods of the day.

SAES-L-450,
C4 Two strings on supports are tied together with a temperature tie-in weld.
Para. 15.6.5

When double string of 1800 m to 2400 m is tied in to the pipeline at


normal daily temperatures, the pipeline being tied into must have an end SAES-L-450,

temperature.

Installation of pipe where one joint is welded at a time from one end to
SAES-L-450,
C6 the other end is allowed only if the average day and night pipe
Para. 15.7
temperatures do not exceed the design tie-in temperatures.

All horizontal deflections are made at deflection anchors and consisted


SAES-L-450,
C7 of a series of very large radius field bends held in special supports
Para. 10.9.1
designed for horizontal thrust, as shown on the Project Drawings.

For larger bend angles that are not accounted for on project drawings,
additional support shall be provided symmetrically distributed along the SAES-L-450,
