Numbering of POF documents
The Pipeline Operators Forum (POF) has been gradually developing and issuing documents on pipeline integrity. To help identify and refer to a particular document, POF has now introduced a document numbering system. Three types of documents are issued by POF: standard practices, recommended practices, and technical reports. The POF 100 series covers standard practices, POF 300 series covers recommended practices and POF 500 series covers technical reports. As an example, the well-known “Specifications and requirements for in-line inspection of pipelines” has received number POF-100. Please visit the “Public documents” page to get an overview of all POF documents with their numbers. All public POF documents have been amended to comply with the new numbering system.
New version of POF specs
A new version of the well-known “Specifications and requirements for in-line inspection of pipelines” is now available in the “Public documents” part of the POF website. This 2021 version supersedes the 2016 version of this standard practice document. It has been fully updated based on input from both POF members and ILI contractors. An overview of the main changes is given in page 2 of this standard practice document. This new version also complies with the new POF numbering system (see separate news item).
