This Technical Specification gives guidance to follow, as a minimum, in order to assess the feasibility of extending the service life of a pipeline system, as defined in ISO 13623, beyond its specified design life. Pump stations, compressor stations, pressure-reduction stations and depots are not specifically addressed in this Technical Specification. This Technical Specification is applicable to rigid metallic pipelines. It is not applicable to the following: flexible pipelines; pipelines constructed from other materials, such as glass reinforced plastics; umbilicals; topsides equipment; and structures and structural components. This Technical Specification is limited to life extension, which is an example of a change to the original design. Other changes, such as MAOP up-ratings, are excluded. The assessment methodology is applicable to other changes to the design at the discretion of the user. Regarding the German collaboration, Working Committee NA 109-00-02 AA "Fernleitungssysteme - Spiegelausschuss zu ISO/TC 67/SC 2" ("Pipeline transportation systems") at the Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries Standards Committee (NÖG) of DIN German Institute for Standardization e. V. is responsible.
