2.2 Compliance with this specification shall not relieve the Contractor of its responsibility to supply equipment suited to meet the specified service conditions and applicable requirements.

2.3 Where conflicts exist between this specification and other Drawings, standards, codes or specifications, the most stringent shall be applied.

3.0 SERVICE CONDITIONS

3.1 The flowlines shall be suitable for continuous operation at a desert location under high ambient temperatures and humidity. The atmosphere at the Facility is generally dusty and corrosive and may contain traces of hydrogen sulphide.

3.2 The flowlines shall in all respects be suitable for continuous operation in service conditions stated in the Engineering Group Specification entitled "Basic Design Criteria" (Number 015-AH-1001)

4.0 TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

4.1

General

The Contractor shall perform, but not be limited to, the works specified below in accordance with Project Drawings and specifications.

4.2

Flowline Elevated Surface Section

Survey route.

Prepare Right-of-way (ROW) along route.

Place concrete pipe supports along the required routing at 12-m intervals.

Lay, string, clean and number all the pipe joints along the required routing.

Prepare for welding and weld the required length of new Sch-40 or Sch-80 carbon steel line pipe along the flowline route. Prepare, fabricate and install expansion loops, and other miscellaneous pipe fittings along the flowline route.

Carry out radiography and repairs, as required.

Hydrotest the elevated surface section for 6 hours.

Reinstate the line following Company acceptance of the flowline.

4.3

Flowline Buried Underuround Section

4.3.1

Excavate trenches 450 mm wide to give a minimum of I-m pipe cover from compacted ground level for the required footage of welded pipe, including risers and other pipe fittings.

4.4

Flowline Burial Criteria

Clean, prime, coat, wrap, lower into trenches the required footage of welded and radiographed pipe. The flowlines shall be buried along the flowlines route in accordance with the following:

a. All sections passing alonglthrough the overhead power transmission lines areas.

b. Along any main road or at asphalted road crossings.

c. At desert road crossings.

d. In the vicinity of existing well sites.

e. Beneath the existing flowlines and gas lines.

f. Close to RCV manifold of respective gathering centre.

g. Across oily and/or gatch top road crossings.

h. Other areas as detailed on drawings.

i. Hydrotest the buried portion of the line for 6 hours.

j.

Upon Company acceptance of the hydrotest, perform the following:

 

1.

Reinstate the line.

2.

Backfill all the trenches.

4.5

Flowline As~haltedRoad Crossing

4.5.1 Prepare necessary welded, inspected, coated and wrapped 12.75 in. OD pipe sleeve section of road crossing together with 2-in, breather pipes.

4.5.2 Prepare road diversion of similar width to crossing.

crossings. Two numbers of pipe sleeves are to be installed at each crossing: one for the flowline to be installed and one spare. Excavations for the above work shall be sufficiently deep (up to 3 m) so that the top of the sleeve pipes shall be at least 1 m below the compacted ground level.

4.5.4 Install the prefabricated pipe sleeve installations and breather pipes so that they shall extend 3 m clear on each side of the existing width of the road shoulders.

4.5.5 After welding, radiography, coating, wrapping and inspection, insert the flowline pipe through the pipe sleeve. Install matching pipeline casing insulators at 1.3-m intervals, all along the length of line pipe installed inside the pipe sleeve.

4.5.6 Scale off the open porting between the line pipe and pipe sleeve at both ends of the pipe sleeve with end seals and also off both ends spare pipe sleeve(s).

4.5.7 Backfill all the trenches and reinstate the road to its original condition, including asphalting.

4.6 Flowline Tie-in at Gatherina Centres

4.6.1 Construct flowline tie-in to the RCV manifold at the respective

The flowline shall be connected to a RCV

gathering centre.

manifold point which shall be specified on the Drawings or onsite.

4.6.2 If required, first expose the old linellines for about 75-m length upstream of RCV tie-in point. Then cut the old linellines 2-3 m belowground, blank off and cap the old linellines by welding. Remove all the cutout piping along with old riser. The newly laid flowline shall then be connected to the same RCV manifold point through a new underground section and riser.

4.7 Wellhead Hook UDS

4.7.1 Wellhead Manifold

Fabricate as required a dual- or single-wellhead manifold and/or modify the existing single to dual wellhead manifold.

4.7.2 Surface Safety Manifold

Fabricate as required a dual or single surface safety manifold, and/or modify the existing to dual surface safety manifold.

4.7.3

Tie-in of Wellhead and Surface Manifold to Flowline

a. Lay, string and weld approximately 100 m of 4-in. or 6-in., Sch-80 or Sch-40 pipe between the wellhead manifod and surface safety manifold, and connect the two manifold to the newly laid flowline.

b. Clean, prime, coat, wrap, lower into trenches welded and radiographed pipe as above. Then, backfill the trenches.

4.7.4 Burn-Off Pit (BOP) Line

a. Lay, string, prepare for welding and weld approximately 300 m of 4-in., Sch-40 pipe.

b. Excavate 450-m wide

give a

minimum of 2-m pipe cover for a total of approximately 75

c. Clean, prime, coat, wrap, lower into trenches approximately 75 m of the BOP line, and then backfill the trenches. The remainder is to be laid on surface.

d. Connect the BOP line to the surface safety manifold.

e. Route the end of the BOP line, through a BOP 12 m in diameter with the surrounding 3-m-high gatch wall.

4.8 Flowline - Pioeline Markers

Install pipeline markers and signs every 500 m throughout the length of the flowline, whether buried underground or elevated on supports. In addition, install pipeline markers and signs wherever the flowline enters the ground and wherever it reappears aboveground.
