The smallest inside diameter of the line will be considered

8.8.3 Line Filling


Test water shall be filtered to remove 99% of particles of 150 microns and larger prior to been
introduced to the pipeline. The section is filled by using 2 bi directional or mono-directional pigs
(4 seal each). In front of the first pig a water quantity corresponding to 5-10% of section volume
will be filled.
Between the first and second pig there will be a batch of water approx. corresponding to 10% of
section volume having the scope of slowing the pig and preventing the possible inlet of air into
the pipe (rear to the pig). During filling , all measures shall be taken regarding volume and
temperature .To ensure pig constant run and outlet of air during the filling, the pressure in the
receiving test head will be kept at 1-2.5 During the filling , the quantity of water used to propel
the pigs shall be metered , so that approx . Location of the pig can be calculated at any time,
indicating a possible obstruction if it becomes stuck, or abrupt and significant pressure
fluctuation occurs as a minimum, the following parameters shall be recorded by contractor
during filling operation:
- Volume of water pumped into pipeline prior to launching pigs.
- Volume and flow rate of water behind last pig.
- Temperature of filling water.
- upon completion of the flooding ,the pipeline is to be locked in and the water is to be stabilized
for a minimum of 24 hours before hydrotesting and the pipe wall temperature shall be within 1 C
of the ground temperature measured at both ends of the pipeline .

8.8.4 Temperature Stabilization


When filling is achieved and after having checked that the pressure is 1 bar in the higher section
of pipeline, the thermal stabilization phase will start. Temperature reading will be taken along the
line in these sequences:
a) After the completion of filling activity, 0 hour.
b) After 8 hours
c) After 16 hours

e) After 24 hours
The temperature stabilization will be considered achieved when the average temperature
reading in the last 8 hours will not exceed 2C and in the last 4 hours will not exceed 1 degree
Celsius.
Normally the stabilization is reached in 24 hours time and the checking will be done in the last 4
hours, the difference of average temperature shall be done less or equal to 1 degree Celsius.
This phase will be defined according to the five steps for temperature readings above
mentioned. Company has to approve this phase.
Pressure and temperature charts will be installed during the test period.

8.8.5 Pressurization
Before pressuring, isolation from all other pipeline sections and completion of test for temporary
piping shall be confirmed when the thermal equilibrium stabilization is reached, the pipeline can
be pressurized. The operation shall be recorded in the test report.
This operation shall be kept under control by hydrostatic balance (Dead weight tester) and
master gauge.
The steps for pressurizing the pipeline shall be:
-pressurize test section recording added volume and pressure at increments of 5 bars up to 50%
of test pressure and 2 bars thereafter . The volume of water required for each 2 bars pressure
rise in the pipeline section up to the test pressure shall be logged and a pressure volume (p/v)
plot developed.
Stop pressurizing at 50%, 70% and 90% of the test pressure. Hold for 30 minutes and compare
with theoretical p/v plot. Determine volume of residual air and if excessive, refill pipeline. If the
p/v curve plot becomes half slope pressurization shall stop, test section isolated and company
shall be notified. On reaching test pressure, check for premature end point and hold at least 3
hours or until reasonable temperature stabilization can be demonstrated. Dead weight readings
shall be taken at fifteen (15) minutes intervals. Should there be no changes in pressure as
indicated by dead weight readings during this period of time. Contractor shall proceed with the
test with the agreement of company.
During this period, contractor shall inspect all flanges and fittings to ensure that no leaks are
present. Should any leak be found, such leaks shall be rectified and the test section repressurized to the required pressure and allowed to stabilize prior to commencement of test.

8.9.3 Pressure diagram


During the test pressure , it is necessary to draw up the diagram of pressure tend versus time
indicating in the ordinates the pressures read in the hydrostatic balance for every change of 0.1
bar and the relevant value of the corrected pressures .

8.9.4 Pressure Record during Hydrotest


The pressures reading during hydrotest, the temperature and the corrected pressure, if any,
shall be recorded on a diagram or on a log.

8.10 Limit of Hydrotesting


The pressure test shall be considered successful when the pressure has been held for 24 hours
with no signs of leakage and the pressure variation is within 0.2 % of the test pressure. If any
leaks are found CONTRACTOR shall be responsible for locating and rectifying the leaks, and retesting the system in accordance with this procedure.
After the test has been completed the system shall be depressurized and left full of the chemically
inhibited hydrotest water.

8.11 Test For Air Content


For sealing test, the presence of air in the section to be tested is a factor which influence the
calculation results; this why a test of presence of air is carried out before undertaking the sealing
and resistance test.
For that we tap a V1 volume of the section. It results a pressure fall Pm measured with the
barometric balance. Then we compare it with the fall theoretical pressure Pc which would have
caused the same sampling in absence of the air in this section.

8.12 Strength test


When the test section reaches a stable condition, it shall then be subject to a strength test of a
suitable duration
If the variation of pressure increases by 0.3 bars or decreases by 1 bar, the later must be adjusted
with the test pressure by depressurizing or by increasing the pressure of test.
The test results would be considered positive if the pressure had maintained a constant value
during all the planned time, except for the changes justified by the temperature variations.

8.13 Depressurizing
After acceptance by the client of the strength test, the pressure shall be bled down gradually at a
rate not exceeding 1 bar/min. until 40% of the test pressure achieved. Continue depressurizing at a
rate of 2 bar/min. until it reaches a pressure of 1 bar at the high point of the section. Excessive
vibration due to high flow rate shall be avoided.

8.14 Dewatering
The Dewatering operation shall be carried out as hereafter described.
Upon completion of this phase, the Contractor shall completely depressurize the section and
remove the test heads.
The dewatering pressure should be equal to the hydraulic pressure in the end of test section but
increased by 2 bars. It must be maintained for the duration of the draining phase of the water used
for the test.
Dewatering should be carried on (if possible) in the opposite sense of filling operation and it will be
achieved by pushing with air one of 4 cup batching pigs used for filling water operation.
When the pig will be arrived to test station, the line will be depressurized from air until a pressure not
less than 2 bar, then the second pig used for filling operation will be pushed until the discharge
point.
Water will be dismantling in dedicated evaporation point.
The emptying is accepted by the Companys Representative when the pigs no longer bring any
water to the terminal head.
