6. Clearing, Grading and Backfilling Of Row :


After the ROW has been cleared, the Contractor will grade the ROW to :

Provide safe access to the pipeline during construction.

Remove sharp, high points, to minimize bending and to maximize laying within the
limits permissible for elastic bending.

Where the construction ROW follows or crosses roads, tracks, overhead power
lines,plantations or any other improved or confined areas, Contractor will grade only the
width of the ROW necessary for digging the pipeline trench.

Fig. 2 shows The Clearing and Grading of Right of Way ( ROW )

In areas where the construction activities require a greater width, Contractor will obtain
prior approval from Client/Authorities having jurisdiction before commencing any
clearing operations.

Contractor will maintain and preserve survey monuments already staked on ground
such as Bench Marks and Intersection/Turning Points until the construction operations
are completed. Contractor will re-establish missing bench marks, as directed by the
Client, to allow accurate levels to be taken during pipe laying or as-built survey of the
pipeline.

Contractor will carry out all Pipeline survey and levelling of line and grades including
as-built survey necessary to complete the work and will be responsible for the accuracy
of such survey and final grades level.

7. Handling & Storage Of Pipe:


Contractor will be responsible for handling, storage and stringing of the coated line
pipe.

Contractor will be responsible for providing suitable trucks and equipment in sufficient
quantity to transport the line pipe safely and efficiently in such a manner that prevents
damage to both the coating and linepipe.

Pipe and factory bends will be adequately restrained, padded and secured in position,
in a suitable manner during transportation, stringing operations and during storage at
pipe dumps.

Pipe will be clearly marked and stacked separately according to wall thickness and
diameter and pipe manufacturer. Under no circumstances will any stack contain
different wall thicknesses and/or pipes of different diameters.

During lifting operations, Contractor will ensure pipes are not allowed to drop or strike
objects which will damage the pipe or coatings.The pipes will be lifted or lowered from
one level to another using suitably rated and certified equipment. Lifting hooks, when
used, will be equipped with a plate bent to fit the curvature of the pipe and which will be
fitted with a soft insert to prevent damage to the pipe wall or bevelled ends.

During hoisting operations, the included angle of the wire ropes will be large enough to
prevent the wire ropes coming into contact with the external coating, whilst still
maintaining a safe lift. Rolling, skidding or dragging of pipes will be strictly forbidden.

Handling of coated pipes will be carried out using flat slings and belts, minimum width
of 150 mm, made from non-metallic/non-abrasive materials.

Coated pipes will, at all times, be stacked clear of the ground by at least 150 mm to
ensure the bottom row of pipes remain free from surface water contact.The stacked
pipes will be inclined to prevent driving rain collecting inside the pipe.

The coated pipes will be stacked on layers of soft, stone free sand and covered with a
plastic film or on wooden supports provided with suitable cover. The supports will be
spaced in such a manner as to avoid permanent bending of the pipes, particularly when

stacking thin wall pipes. The pipes will be stacked so that the uncoated bevelled ends
are in line at one end, thus making differences in lengths clearly noticeable.

The coated pipes will be stacked in a manner and to a height approved by the Client.
Each pipe will be separated by means of spacers suitably spaced to enable safe lifting
of the pipes without damaging the coatings. Stacks will consist of pipe sections having
the same diameter, wall thickness and manufacturer.

All coated pipes stacked for prolonged periods in open storage yards/stock piled will be
suitably covered, as approved by the Client, to reduce exposure to direct sunlight.

During handling and stacking, Contractor will ensure all pipe ends are protected with
the bevel protectors supplied with the pipe. Contractor will replace any bevelprotectors
found to be missing.

8. Stringing Of Line Pipes :


Pipe will be unloaded from the stringing trucks and lowered onto the ground using side
booms, telescopic mobile crane or other suitable equipment approved by the Client.

Pipes will be strung along side the trench on supports properly spaced with the pipe
clear of the ground.

REV. 0 Pages 18

The pipes will be strung parallel to the trench at a suitable and constant distance from
the centre line of the trench. Stringing on the ROW will be carried out in such a manner
as to minimize interference to trucks normally using the access tracks crossing the
ROW.

Contractor will leave gaps at regular intervals or wherever requested by other users to
permit the passage for traffic or equipment across the ROW and along public roads or
highways. Pipe stringing will be carried out in such a manner as not to cause a hazard
or possible damage to the public and local traffic.

All coated pipes strung on the ROW will be supported in such a manner that each pipe
is free from contact with the ground at all times. Sand bags, as approved by the Client
may be used as pipe supports except in wet areas. In wet areas, wooden skids will be
used, as approved by the Client.Pipe ends will be protected with plastic end covers to
prevent ingress of sand and construction debris whilst the pipes are strung along the
ROW.

9. Care Of Other Materials :


Materials supplied by the Contractor will be properly stored in a safe,secure area and
will not be strung on the ROW. When required the materials will be transported onto the
ROW in covered vehicles and delivered direct to the desired location.

Provision of all storage areas, buildings and associated Security services will be the
responsibility of the contractor.

10. Trenching :
10.1 Excavation:

Contractor will excavate the pipeline trench on the pipeline alignment as per approved
for Construction drawings.

Trenching operations will not commence until the staked pipeline centreline has been
approved by the Client.

Contractor will excavate the pipeline trench on the cleared and graded ROW using any
method approved by the Client. Care will be exercised to ensure that fresh material
recovered from trenching operations, intended for back filling over the pipe in the trench
is not mixed with loose debris foreign materials.

10.2 Normal Cover and Trench Dimensions:

Normally, the trench will be excavated to a minimum width so as to provide, on both


sides of the installed pipeline, the clearance as indicated on the typical drawings and to
a depth sufficient to provide the minimum cover required above the line pipe according
to the following table.

Ser. PipeLine Size Minimum Trench Width

The cover will be measured from the top of the coated pipe, after it has been laid in the
trench or placed on the formation level, to the level of the original ground or modified profile in areas
of cut.

10.3 Trench Crossings:

Where the trench is cut across existing access roads or tracks etc., Contractor will
install substantial temporary bridges to support the full width of the roads or tracks.

The temporary bridges will be of adequate strength and properly constructed to ensure
public safety and allow passage of normal traffic with minimum inconvenience and
interruption. Where practicable, Contractor may also propose suitable alternative routes
that will however, have no cost impact to the Client.

Wherever deemed necessary by the Client, Contractor will arrange to complete the
trenching, laying and backfilling of such crossings and to remove the temporary bridging
before the end of the regular work day in order to minimize the potential hazard to night
traffic.

Client will Provide the necessary permission, in writing, from the relevant authorities
before commencing any Work and will ensure that all regulations and requirements of
that authority are complied with.

Contractor will provide and maintain proper warning signs, which comply with current
highway authority standards while the crossings are open. If such crossings are open at
night, Contractor will provide and use warning lights of a type approved by the Client
and the relevant authorities.

11. Mechanical Works of Pipeline :


11.1 Welding of Straight Run Sections:

Staight areas of the pipe line can be welded to make long straight run sections , The
lengthes of Straight Run Sections is related to the Pipe diameter and its Weight and the
available straight distances between Hoizontal or Vertical bending points,in addition, it
is related to the number of Sidebooms and its possibility to make lowering of these
welded sections into the excavated trench.

Contractor will ensure the pipe is fully supported during positional welding operations to
prevent any movement and subsequent weld cracking. Earthing clamps will be
connected to the bevel face and will not rest on the parent metal surface adjacent to the
weld preparation area. The clamps used will be of same materal as the pipeline
material.

REV. 0 Pages 18

All welding works will be done in tents to avoid any probable repairs that can be caused
from air or dust in areas surrounding welding areas.

All welded joints will be subject to 100 % Radiographic inspection.Radiographic


Inspection will be carried out in accordance the approved Radiographic Inspection
Procedure (FAJR-2819-670-020-M-4-PT-014).

11.2 Tie-Ins Joining Unconnected Sections:

Where pipeline straight run sections are to be tied-in following lowering-in and
backfilling operations, the length of pipeline left open will be kept to a minimum.

Contractor will carry out all tie-in operations in accordance with the Client
specifications.Tie-in welds connecting restrained pipeline sections will be carried out at
the minimum pipe temperature. Where necessary, to avoid straining the pipe, sufficient
restrained sections of pipe will be uncovered to allow slack loops to be held during
alignment of the butt and welding of the final tie-in joint. Under no circumstances will
the pipeline be left in tension after the tie-in. Bell holes excavated to facilitate welding
will provide adequate clearance for the welder to exercise his normal welding ability
and skill.

11.3 Repair of Welding defects:

All welding defects detected using the applicable NDT methods for Inspections,
resulted during the pipeline construction will be repaired according to the Project
applicable codes related to Pipeline ( API 1104 ) and the project approved Repair
procedure (FAJR-2819-670-020-M-4-PT-012).

11.4 Pipe Bends:

Where possible, Contractor will provide for changes of vertical and horizontal alignment
by elastic flexing of the pipeline.

Contractor may provide cold field bends, at his option for change of direction and
change of slope. Hot bends will be provided where such bends are required due to a
space/level constraint.

Over bends will be made in such a manner that the centre of the bends clears the high
points of the trench bottom. Sag bends will fit the bottom of the trench and side bends
will conform and leave clearance to the outside wall of the trench.

11.4.1 Elastic Bends

The minimum allowable radius for elastic bends in the buried or above ground sections
of pipeline will be based on the maximum allowable bend stress specified in the
applicable Pipeline Design Code. The elastic bend will be continuously supported over
its entire length.

Any bend radius with less than the permitted elastic bend minimum will be produced
using a cold field bending technique.

11.4.2 Cold Field Bends

Cold Bends will be produced using a cold, smooth-stretch technique utilising purpose
built equipment as approved by the Client, in such a manner as to preserve the cross
sectional shape of the pipe. Under no circumstances will heat be used for the purpose
of bending the pipe.The cold bends radius will not be less than 40 times the pipe
nominal diameter.

Contractor will use the correct size bending machine and mandrel and adopt
recognised and accepted methods for bending coated pipe in accordance with good
pipeline construction practice.The bending machine will be of a type approved by the
Client. Bending machines will be capable of making bends without wrinkles, buckles,
stretching and with minimum damage to the coating. Any damage to the coating will be
repaired by the Contractor.

11.5 External Coating of Field Joints:

Field Joints Coating will be carried out in accordance with the Project Approved
External Coating Procedure.

11.5.1 Care in Handling Coated Pipe

Coated line pipe will not be handled or moved by means of cables or chains, or levered
using skids or bars, or dragged along the ground. The line pipe will only be lifted,
moved and laid using suitable lifting equipment of non-abrasive material having
adequate width to prevent damage to the pipeline coating. Care will also be exercised
when removing slings from around the coated line pipe following lowering-in operations
into the trench.

Lowering in using a standard pipe cradle, will be permitted providing the Contractor
demonstrates the pipe coating is not damaged. Under no circumstances will the
pipeline be slung around the completed field joint coating.

11.5.2 Repair of Damaged Coating:

Before lowering-in operations commence, the integrity of the completed pipeline


coating system will be checked using a calibrated full-circle holiday detector at 15KV.
This will ensure a 100 percent, holiday-free pipeline (Main body of the line pipes and
Field joints) coating system.

Contractor will repair all damages to the satisfaction of the Client according to the
approved External Coating procedure. All points on the pipeline where the coating had
been in contact with either skids or lifting equipment during handling will be carefully
inspected for damage, denting or other defects and will be completely repaired.Should
it be necessary, after checking, to place the pipeline back onto supports on the bottom
of the trench, the supports will be padded in such a way as to prevent damage to the
coating. Before the last operation, a check must be made of the coating at points of
contact with the supports.

When it becomes apparent the pipeline is being laid under tension, as result, for
example of incorrect positioning of bends (either horizontal or vertical), the trench will
be modified to match the pipeline configuration with the approval of the Client.

Pipeline laying operations will be carried out under safe conditions to avoid
unacceptable induced stresses and temporary deformation that may cause consequent
damage to the pipeline coating.

Where the Right Of Way is restricted to less than the minimum necessary for the
movement of mechanical equipment, the laying operations will be carried out using
other suitable means.The line pipe will be placed smoothly onto the trench bottom or
excavation floor whilst preventing any jerking, falling and impact movements that may
induce stresses.

Contractor will ensure that the deformation caused during lifting the pipeline from its
supports does not exceed the minimum allowable radius of elastic curvature. This will
ensure the stresses on the pipeline and coating remain within safe limits and over
stressing of the pipe and subsequent permanent deformation does not occur.

The suspended section of the pipeline between the trench bottom and Supports will be
supported using sufficient side-booms to hold the pipeline in a suitable position whilst
maintaining the minimum elastic bend radius. The number of side-booms will be
adequate to allow safe and efficient pipe laying operations to be carried out and will be
approved by the Client.

The entire length of available pipeline section will be laid without interruption.Where
water is present, no laying will be permitted until the trench has been completely
drained allowing the necessary time to carry out the visual inspection of the trench
bottom and subsequent bed on which the pipe is to be laid.Contractor will take
precautions immediately following lowering-in to prevent movement of the pipe in the
trench.

11.6 Lowering-In Of Pipe:

11.6.1 Method and Time of Lowering-In Pipe

Lowering in of the pipeline will commence following removal from the trench bottom of
all pipe off-cuts, skid supports, stones, debris, stakes, rock projections and any other
rigid materials which, if left underneath the pipe, could lead to perforation or tearing of
the pipeline coating. Sand padding will be placed in the trench bottom prior to the
lowering-in operation.

The lowering-in operation will follow as soon as possible, after completion of the field
joint coating of the pipeline and clearing of the trench bottom.

11.6.2 Timing of Lowering-In of Pipe

Contractor will consider the timing of the lowering-in operation, the quantity of pipe
available for lowering-in and the required backfilling operations when confronted with
unstable trench conditions and/or inclement weather. Contractor may stop the lowering-
in operation if it appears the required backfilling operation cannot keep up.

All measurements and survey data required for completion of the As-Built drawings
will be taken prior to backfilling.

12. Backfilling :
12.1 Timing of Backfilling operations:

Backfilling operations will not commence until the pipeline and any associated
equipment have been positioned correctly in the trench to provide the required cover
and alignment in accordance with the approved construction drawings.

Prior to backfilling,the Client will be informed and the installed pipeline made available
for final inspection. BackfiIling will not commence without Client approval for Release
for Backfilling Report.

The backfilling operation will follow as closely as Possible to the lowering-in of the
pipeline to ensure the pipeline is secured into position in the trench and will prevent
damage to the pipeline coating from exposure to temperature and weather.

12.2 Selected Backfill Materials and Padding:

Hard materials such as rock, gravel, etc. will not be used as padding directly onto the
Line pipe to avoid any damages for the line pipe body or external coating.

Contractor will provide the necessary padding as required.In such areas and other
areas designated by the Client, sufficient sand will be placed under, around and over
the pipe as to form protective padding of about 200 mm around the line pipe.

The padding will be installed using a method approved by the Client and the Contractor
will ensure no sharp rocks or hard objects are present in the backfill material.

Trenching out put materials can be used as backfill materials for placing on top of the
sand padding but it will not contain large gravel or heavy rocks.

Loose rock, wherever encountered, may be returned to the trench, subject to Client
approval, following placing of selected backfill material over the top of the pipe.

13. Hydrostatic Testing :


Upon completion of the line or a substantial part or thereof, sections of the line will
becleaned, gauged and tested in accordance with the Project applicable codeand
approved Hydrostatic Testing Procedure.

The hydrostatic test water will be disposed of in such a manner as to eliminate any
environmental impact to the surrounding areas. The location,method and water
disposal scheme will meet all the requirements of the local authorities.

Contractor will be responsible for obtaining all permits and approvals from the local
authorities prior to commencement of water disposal and all clearance certificates
following completion of the water disposal activities.

All Works associated with these activities will be carried as a part of Contractor scope
of work.

14. Drying operation :


Following completion and Client acceptance of all hydrostatic tests, Contractor will
dewater, clean and where applicable dry the Pipeline in accordance approved the
