Tech Talk: Long Seam Integrity Management: What Does the Mega Rule Have to Say?

Historically, long seam integrity has been managed in covered segments as a stable manufacturing feature by most natural gas operators. The modified log-secant equation has seen widespread use as an integrity model for long seam features. In July 2020, the first part of the long anticipated gas Mega Rule went into effect. The updated rule has significant implications on how gas operators can assess and manage the threat of long seam defects. In addition, new performance-based requirements can have significant implications on how and where operators must now assess long seam integrity. This presentation examines specific portions of the updated rule and identifies critical issues pertaining to long seam integrity for natural gas operators.
