Description

IOGP Report 443

High integrity protection systems (HIPS) and especially high integrity pressure protection systems (HIPPS) are an increasingly common feature of oil and gas facilities worldwide.

They can provide an alternative to conventional mechanical protective devices (e.g. relief valves) or reduce the load upon them.

In some cases they present the only practical option to facilitate field development and/or expansion.
This RP provides mainly technical recommendations for those involved in the definition, design, implementation of HIPS. – See more at: http://www.iogp.org/Reports/Type/443/id/597#sthash.iHVBeCgQ.dpuf
