Piping Checklist for 60% 3D Model Review

60% model review is one of the reviews planned in all the EPC projects execution at different
stages- 30%, 60% and 90% of design completion.

60% 3D model review is an intermediate review which take place when the final structural
steel, final equipment and the majority of the major piping runs, duct-work, instrument and
electrical trays have been MODELLED. The primary purpose of these reviews is to review the
routings to insure that process integrity has not been compromised, that the pipe, duct-work and
tray runs are in accordance with the minimum criteria established for the project and to observe
any potential interference in the operability or maintainability, created by the routing of these
items.
Below is the piping check point which shall be reviewed prior to 60% 3D model review:

Piping Checklist for 90% 3D Model Review
90% 3D model review is a final review in 3 sets of model reviews, 30%, 60% and
90%. 90% 3D model review held when the 3D model has basically been completed. This
occurs when all equipment, piping, valves, instruments, electrical, structural and other items
have been modeled in 3D environment. In this review, the items to be reviewed will include
such things as the location and orientation of valve hand wheels for operability, the location
of local instruments for maintainability.
Agreement on the location of all these critical items should precede the start of piping
isometrics EXTRACTION or the preparation of instrument location plan drawings, if
required.

before proceeding for milestone review.
2. Many check points in the check list do not specify the criteria or basis for checking. The
points are listed with the intention to cover the full scope of model and that there are no
miss-outs before proceeding for mile stone review. Separate check prints of points need to
be maintained by Area Designers, Lead Designers and Area engineers to support the
readiness of the model review.
3. This check list is to be prepared by piping Lead Designer for each area or WBS
separately.
4. Though this check list is prepared by piping Lead Designer and checked by piping Area
Engineer, it requires input from many disciplines. In such cases the piping lead designer
has to obtain the confirmation from the designer of the respective discipline.
5. The Model Manager is the approver for the list.
6. The signed copy is to be preserved for record.

P&IDs and are not considered in MTO.

1.56 Number of hydro test vent & drain & MTO are
considered based on the sketches prepared for MTO
and identified separately. For below 2″ pipe sizes with
CS/SS materials, ensure that 10 % of line count is
considered for hydrotest test vent & drain (i.e. 5%
each) in MTO/material cost If sketches are not
prepared.

1.57 Hydro test Materials like temporary spool materials,


blind flanges, gasket, etc. are considered, if in scope.

1.58 Pipe support MTO including pipe clamps, shoes, U-


bolts, special supports, etc. are considered.

1.59 MTO for wear pads, reinforcement pad, trunnions, etc.


are considered.

1.60 Extra bolt lengths for flange connection with wafer type
valves, PSVs, insulating gaskets, restriction orifice,
spectacle blind, conical strainer etc. are considered.

2 Tie-in MTO
2.01 Tie-in materials are considered and separated from
new line MTO. Additional temporary materials like
blind flange, gasket, bolt, etc. are considered as
applicable.

2.02 Flange rating or pipe schedule matching with


existing/project interface/ vendor supply items is
verified. If site survey data is available, flange
dimensional standard to be correctly captured (e.g.
B16.47/MSS-SP-44).

2.03 Material required for early tie-in is considered in MTO,


if applicable.

2.04 Material required for Hot tapping is considered in


MTO, if it is not in vendor scope.

3 During MTO extraction from 3D model

3.01 MTO OFF/ Non reportable category report is


generated from model and checked for the actual
requirements.

3.02 Data verification/Data consistency reports and RDB


conflict reports generated and cleared.

3.03 Ensure model is updated for latest revision of P&IDs.

3.04 Ensure that cleared items in hold list is updated in


model.

3.05 Ensure Hold items are identified in downloaded MTO.

3.06 MTO for the lines not modelled or captured as per line
list/highlighted P&IDs is manually added into the MTO.

3.07 Ensure with design team that, MTO is non-reportable


for items modeled for temporary purpose.(e.g. Flange
modeled to show continuity with existing line at Tie-
Ins)

3.08 Ensure future model MTO is not considered during


extraction.

II P&ID MTO (Valves, Specialty items, etc.)

4 MTO Stage-1 (Before 30% Stage)

4.01 BID/IDC P&IDs with mark up are received and


compared with BID MTO. Additional items/Quantities
are identified & updated.

4.02 MTO at 4.01 is updated based on the IFR P&IDs and


additional items/quantities are identified.

5 MTO Stage-2 (After 30% to 60% stage)


5.01 MTO at 4.02 is updated based on the IFA P&IDs and

5.02 MTO at 5.01 is updated based on the IFH and IDIT


P&IDs and additional items/quantities are identified.

5.03 MTO at 5.02 is updated based on the IFD P&IDs and


additional items/quantities are identified.

5.04 All the above stages mentioned in 5.01, 5.02 and/or


IFD can be considered for MTO updation depending
upon the project delivery requirement.

5.05 MTO is downloaded from model (Comply with section-


3) and compared with manual MTO at 5.03. Any
discrepencies are identified and corrected.

6 MTO Stage-3 (After 60% to 90% stage)

6.01 MTO at 5.05 is updated based on the IFC P&IDs and


additional items/quantities are identified.

6.02 MTO is downloaded from model (Comply with section-


3) for the lines that are completely modeled and
compared with manual MTO at 6.01. Any
discrepencies are identified and corrected.

6.03 Piping items identified for substitution is verified and


incorporated in the MTO where order cancellation of
the surplus items is not possible as confirmed by
procurement.

III Bulk MTO (Pipe, elbow, etc.)

7 MTO Stage-1 (Before 30% Stage)

7.01 BID/IDC P&IDs with mark up are received and


compared with BID MTO. Additional items/Quantities
are identified & updated.

7.02 MTO at 7.01 is updated based on the IFR P&IDs and


additional items/quantities are identified.

8 MTO Stage-2 (After 30% to 60% stage)

8.01 MTO at 7.02 is updated based on the IFA P&IDs and


additional items/quantities are identified.

8.02 MTO at 8.01 is updated based on the IFH/IDIT P&IDs


and compared with downloaded MTO (Comply with
section-3) for the lines that are completely modeled.
Additional items/quantities are identified.

8.03 MTO at 8.02 is updated based on the IFD P&IDs and


compared with downloaded MTO (Comply with
section-3) for the lines that are completely modeled.
Additional items/quantities are identified.

8.04 All the above stages mentioned in 8.01, 8.02 and/or


IFD can be considered for MTO updation depending
upon the project delivery requirement.

9 MTO Stage-3 (After 60% to 90% stage)

incorporated in the MTO where order cancellation of
the surplus items is not possible as confirmed by
procurement.

10 MTO Stage-4 (After 90% to 100% stage)

10.01 Ensure 90% model review comments are updated and


all isometrics are checked.
