(a) A preventative maintenance program must ensure the continued operational reliability of any pipeline or pipeline system affecting quality, safety and pollution prevention. The program shall, at a minimum, include all applicable requirements and guidelines prescribed in API 570, Piping Inspection Code--Inspection, Repair, Alteration and Rerating of In-service Piping Systems, First Edition, June 1993, published by the American Petroleum Institute, 1220 L Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 2005.
(b) Inspection and Testing Requirements for Pipelines Included in a Preventative Maintenance Program.
(1) For pipelines which are buried or submerged either partially or wholly the following shall be carried out:
(A) Either annual SCPS inspections per API 570 guidelines and triennial SLPTs as prescribed in 2 CCR Section 2564(c)(3)(B) for pipelines fitted with SCPS, or annual SLPTs as prescribed in 2 CCR Section 2564(c)(3)(A) for pipelines not provided with SCPS, whichever is appropriate; and
(B) An inspection program for emergency shut-off and isolation valves that control the flow of oil which shall, at a minimum, include that the stems of all such valves be stroked at least once a year.
(2) For pipelines which are situated entirely above the ground or water, the following shall be carried out:
(A) Triennial SLPTs as prescribed in 2 CCR Section 2564(c)(3)(C) and triennial pipewall thickness measurement inspections per API 570 guidelines; and
(B) An inspection program for emergency shut-off and isolation valves that control the flow of oil which shall, at a minimum, include that the stems of all such valves be stroked at least once a year.
(3) For any pipeline which is above ground for substantially all of its length, but which has a relatively short portion below ground buried beneath one or more berms or roads, the operator may petition the Division Chief for the application of testing and inspection requirements for the entire pipeline as prescribed under 2 CCR Section 2570(b)(2). Such petitions shall follow the procedures outlined in § 2571.
(c) Any preventative maintenance program shall also include procedures to review proposed changes in operations, including materials transferred, to evaluate potential impacts on pipeline integrity.
(d) Terminal operators shall validate that the preventative maintenance program is being effectively carried out by maintaining documentation which includes, at a minimum, all of the following:
(1) The procedures for carrying out the preventative maintenance program in conformance with the requirements of API 570;
(2) Dates of inspections and tests;
(3) Inspections and test data evaluation including analyses, pipewall thickness measurements and remaining life calculations;
(4) The terminal management's internal audits of the program, including descriptions of controls and corrections for non-conformities;
(5) Repairs, alterations and rerating of piping systems; and
(6) Any other information pertinent to the integrity of pipelines.
(e) Every terminal operator shall provide to the Division access at any time to any documentation required under subsection (d) of this section.
