1. OBJECTIVE
The purpose of this procedure is to define all the activities which are performed to
ensure the tightness of plant piping and equipment.
While the pressure tests are carried out on spools during construction in order to
verify the integrity of welds and material, the gross air leak tests are carried out on
entire systems, after flushing and cleaning operations and completion of the
installation to prove the integrity of the permanent parts such as:
-

Gaskets and other flange joints, valves packing, miscellaneous connections such
as vents, drains, safety valves, instruments, connections between systems being
tested.

Joints which temporary piping had been connected with.

Gross air leak tests must also establish that any equipment associated with the
system, which may have been previously dismantled for any reason, has been
correctly reinstalled.

2. SCOPE
2.1.

This method statement shall be applied only to the West Qurna Field 2nd phase
project

6. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
6.1.

The safety measures such as warning sign, barrier and watchmen shall be provided
in the test area.

6.2.

Protection of devices in the vicinity of network shall be carefully studied, in particular


near the pressurization and depressurization areas in order not to damage any
mechanical, electrical and instrumentation items.

6.3.

The danger of sudden leaks through the gaskets is anticipated during the
pressurizing. Flange and unions should not be soaped until the system has reached
to a constant pressure level.

6.4.

Non testing block shall be vented properly so that this block can never be
pressurized due to the unexpected leakage of block valve.

6.5.

Non-essential personnel are barred from the area during the test. Contractor will
provide watchmen at key points to ensure security.

6.6.

Leak tests must not be performed unless the entire system is free from hydrocarbons.

7. DETAILED METHOD
Refer to attached marked-up P&IDs for detailed pipes & valve mechanical
arrangement. All drain, vent and the designated valves on the package battery limit
are closed and the instrument line valve is to be opened as shown in the gross air
leak test path.
7.1.

Preparation
All temporary equipment shall be dismantled, and the permanent equipment shall be
reinstated.
It must be ensured that marked-up P&IDs are available, pipes and fittings are
identified, and mechanical arrangement of valve and equipment are properly
identified.
Location of isolation valves and blinds shall be checked according to the approved
marked-up P&IDs.
The locations of test medium introduction during pressure build up and medium
discharge during depressurization should be defined and isolated.

The location of the pressure gauges/indicators needed during test should be


identified and ensured that they are functional.
Test blocks shall be established and isolated based on the relevant diagrams.
7.2.

Pressure
The pressure reading shall not exceed specified test pressure. Refer to below table
for the correct test pressure of each air leak test package. Be reminded that
overpressure of the system may cause damage to the equipment such as valves,
pitting, exchangers, vessels, turbines, pumps, etc.
