Abstract: Fitness for service (FFS), as applied to pipelines can be defined as an analytical procedure for determining if a pipeline is fit to operate without the risk of failure. FFS is needed to maintain safe and reliable pipeline operation, avoid environmental impact, and optimize maintenance programs. Estimating the remaining strength and life of in-service pipelines are key elements of their FFS assessment. FFS assessment is used to establish intervals for in-line inspection (ILI), prioritize ILI results for field inspection, establish hydrostatic testing intervals, determine if operating pressure must be reduced, decide to repair or cut out a defect, and prioritize inspection, re-coating or repair. In general, FFS addresses many types of defects and material degradation mechanisms. The scope of this paper is limited to consideration of stress-corrosion cracking (SCC).
