API RP 1160 : 2019 (R2024)

Managing System Integrity for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

Standard Details

This recommended practice outlines a process that an operator of a pipeline system can use to assess risks and make decisions about risks in order to reduce incidents and the adverse effects of errors and incidents.

An integrity management program provides a means to improve the safety of pipeline systems and to allocate operator resources effectively to: identify and analyze actual and potential precursor events that can result in incidents; examine the likelihood and potential severity of incidents; provide a comprehensive and integrated means for examining and comparing the spectrum of risks and risk reduction activities available; provide a structured, easily communicated means for selecting and implementing risk reduction activities; and, establish and track system performance with the goal of improving that performance.

This RP is specifically designed to provide the operator with a description of industry-proven practices in pipeline integrity management.

The RP is largely targeted to onshore pipelines along the right-of-way, but the process and approach can be applied to pipeline facilities, including pipeline stations, terminals, and delivery facilities associated with pipeline systems.
