ACTION: Notice; Issuance of Advisory Bulletin. SUMMARY: The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) reminds pipeline owners and operators of the importance of installing weldable compression couplings in accordance with manufacturer procedures and following appropriate safety and start-up procedures. The failure to install weldable compression couplings correctly, or the failure to implement and follow appropriate safety and start-up procedures, could result in a catastrophic pipeline failure. PHMSA strongly urges operators to review, and incorporate where appropriate into operators’ written procedures, the manufacturer’s installation procedures and take any other necessary safety measures for safe and reliable operation of pipeline systems.

Background In 2007, a crude oil release occurred during maintenance activities on a major oil pipeline. The escaping crude oil ignited and resulting in two fatalities. When this incident occurred the operator was performing a pipe replacement using pre-tested pipe and weldable compression couplings. The failure occurred during start-up operations when the forces associated with pipeline operations exceeded the restraining capability of the unfinished replacement assembly. As pressure increased, movement of the piping occurred resulting in the eventual separation of the pipe from the weldable compression coupling. There was sufficient mechanical breakdown and the escaping crude oil created a flammable vapor-air mixture which ignited a few seconds after the release began. The pipeline was being re-started to allow for welding of the compression couplings to the pipe when the release occurred. The failure occurred while pressure and flow were increasing. The weldable compression couplings use radial bolts (clamp screws) to attach the compression coupling to the surface of the pipeline. Once attached, longitudinal bolts apply pressure to a steel ring and neoprene seal which expands, providing a compressive seal between the weldable compression coupling and exterior surface of the pipe. The compression couplings are designed to be fillet welded to the pipe surface after bolting and sealing, making them a permanent welded repair. In the above referenced incident, the weldable compression couplings had been modified prior to the installation by cutting off approximately half of the clamping bolts which reduced the restraining capability of the replacement assembly. The manufacturer’s installation procedures did not authorize this modification. In addition, operators’ procedures specific to the installation of compression couplings must provide sufficient guidance for their employees to determine whether a pipeline is fully anchored prior to welding. In the above referenced incident, the manufacturer’s literature described a pipeline in the anchored condition as being ‘‘restricted from movement in all directions’’ and the operating pressure chosen by the operator to be sustained for welding was based on the manufacturer’s recommendation for a fully anchored installation.
