The development of weld procedures for X80 pipelines in the UK

International Seminar on Welding of High Strength Pipeline Steels

An extensive programme of development work was undertaken prior to the implementation of the first grade X80 pipeline in the UK in the year 2000. Since that time over 900 km of DN1200 grade X80 pipelines have been installed in the UK and a wealth of experience has been gained. This paper chronicles some of the historical background and describes the weld procedure requirements for girth welding of X80 pipelines.
