Line Sizing
Hydraulics shall be calculated based on design material balance flow rate only (including start-up and
shutdown operations), without any allowances for non-premised operating conditions, worst case climatic
conditions, utility upsets, etc.
Piping sizes will be rounded down based on preliminary hydraulics and increased in size only if needed to
deal with hydraulic shortcomings, which prevent reaching the required capacity.
(Hydraulics also based on Control Valve at 70% open position.)
Same as Class 1, plus allowances on selected lines for non-premised operating conditions, worst case
climatic conditions, utility upsets, etc.
The piping in these selected systems will be sized based on final hydraulics and rounding up to the
nearest nominal pipe size.

Same as Class 2, plus additional capacity for specified future requirements.


The piping systems will be sized based on final hydraulics and rounding up to the nearest nominal pipe
size.
Valve Types
Use lowest cost valve types that meet requirements for isolation (gate or butterfly) and check valves
(piston or flapper types).
Use industry standard valve types (such as PIP) or Contractor’s valve types.
Use valve design types per Shell piping spec DEPS or EGGS requirements.
Valve Locations
Valves will be located at low cost elevation/ locations and may require temporary ladders, etc to operate.
Valves for selected services will be located at grade or easily assessable locations. Battery limit valving
maybe in the pipe rack.
Isolation valves will either be at grade, a platform or be a MOV.
Bypass Manifold Around Control Valves
See DEP 00.00.07.98-Gen - PACO
I.e.: No bypass valves around control valves.
See DEP 00.00.07.98-Gen - PACO
I.e.: Selected bypass valves around control valves.
See DEP 00.00.07.98-Gen - PACO
I.e.: Most have bypass valves around control valves.
