1 Scope

1.1 This specification prescribes the requirements that apply to carbon steel and low
alloy steel piping components for use in services with design minimum
temperatures within the range of -18°C to -45°C.

1.2 Components included are butt welding pipe fittings such as elbows, tees,
welding outlets, reducers, caps, and lap joint stub ends < NPS 24, as well as
blind flanges, spectacle plates, spacers and slip blinds. Pipe is not included as a
piping component and is not addressed in this specification.

1.3 This specification is intended to apply to purchase of "loose" components and is


not mandatory for components installed on equipment that is engineered,
manufactured, and tested prior to delivery to Saudi Aramco.

1.4 Socket-welding and threaded fittings less than 2-inch NPS are excluded from
this specification.

2 Conflicts and Deviations

2.1 Any conflicts between this specification and other applicable Saudi Aramco
Materials System Specifications (SAMSSs), Engineering Standards (SAESs),
Standard Drawings (SASDs), or industry standards, codes, and forms shall be
resolved in writing by the Company or Buyer Representative through the
Manager, Consulting Services Department of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran.

2.2 Direct all requests to deviate from this specification in writing to the Company or
Buyer Representative, who shall follow internal company procedure SAEP-302
and forward such requests to the Manager, Consulting Services Department of
Saudi Aramco, Dhahran.

3 References

The design of the piping components shall be in accordance with the following
standards, Saudi Aramco Specifications and Standard Drawings.

4 General

4.1 Purchase Order Information shall indicate the following: type of pipe
component, grade, nominal size, wall thickness of matching pipe for butt
welding fittings; bore and flange rating in addition to nominal size for flanges.
Requirement for NACE MR0175/ISO 15156 shall be indicated if applicable.

4.2 All components shall be seamless, unless otherwise approved by the Company
or Buyer representative.

5 Materials

5.1 Acceptable materials are ASTM A420 Grade WPL 3, ASTM A420 Grade WPL
6, and ASTM A350 Grade LF2 when they are tested and inspected in

accordance with this specification. ASTM A516 plate may be used for blind
flanges, spectacle plates, spacers and slip blinds when tested and inspected in
accordance with this specification.

5.2 Impact Requirements

5.2.1 Grade WPL 3 materials shall be tested as specified in ASTM A420.

5.2.2 Grade WPL 6 materials shall be tested as specified in ASTM A420


except that the required Charpy V-notch impact values shall be 34/27 J
(25/20 ft-lbs) for standard 10 mm by 10 mm specimens. For subsize
specimens the provisions of ASME B31.3 Para. 323.3 shall apply.
Commentary Notes:

In the notation of required Charpy Values such as 25/20, the first number
is the average energy of three specimens while the second number is the
minimum for any one specimen.

The provisions in ASTM A350 Para. 7.2.4 for subsize specimens and test
temperature reduction are the same as in ASME B31.3 Para. 323.3.

5.2.3 Grade LF2 materials shall be tested as specified in ASTM A350 except
that the required Charpy V-notch impact values shall be 34/27 J (25/20
ft-lbs) for standard 10 mm by 10 mm specimens.

5.2.4 ASTM A516 plate, used for blind flanges, spectacle plates, blinds, and
spacers, shall be tested as specified in ASTM A516 S2, S5, S12 and the
required longitudinal Charpy V-notch impact values shall be 34/27 J
(25/20 ft-lbs) for standard 10 mm by 10 mm specimens. For subsize
specimens the provisions of ASME B31.3 Para. 323.3 shall apply.

5.3 Butt welding pipe fittings shall also comply with 02-SAMSS-005.

5.4 Piping components shall comply with the requirements of NACE MR0175/ISO
15156 when specified in the Purchase Order.
Commentary Note:

NACE MR0175/ISO 15156 is not normally specified for butt-welding pipe fittings
per 02-SAMSS-005 because 02-SAMSS-005 requirements are consistent with
NACE MR0175/ISO 15156 and are considered by Saudi Aramco to be adequate
for sour service.

6 Inspection and Testing

6.1 General

Page 4 of 5
Document Responsibility: Materials and Corrosion Control 02-SAMSS-001

Components purchased in accordance with this specification are subject to the


requirements of Inspection Form 175-023400 in addition to the inspection
requirements in the basis specifications.

6.2 Visual Inspection and Dimensional Check

General appearance, workmanship and fit-up shall be acceptable in accordance


with ASME B31.3 Para. 344.2. For welded fittings, the outside and inside weld
bead shall not exceed 3.2 mm and edges of welds shall merge smoothly into the
pipe surface.

6.3 Tests

Tests of mechanical properties and nondestructive tests shall be done in


accordance with the requirements of the basis specification. All test results shall
be reported.

7 Documentation

Three (3) copies of all mill certificates and all other test results required by this
specification shall be supplied in the English language.

8 Product Marking

Piping components shall be marked in accordance with ASTM A420 or ASTM A350 as
appropriate. For easy identification all components shall have an approximately 25 mm
wide orange stripe painted over the longitudinal axis. Components that cannot be
painted as such, shall be painted completely orange. Flanges shall have the rim painted
orange. All other required markings shall remain legible or be restored after the orange
paint is applied. The paint shall be lead free.

9 Export Packing, Marking and Shipping

Export packing, marking and shipping shall be in accordance with the Purchase
