Question: Regarding Table 1 in NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-2 is it defined what field facilities and field processing plants include? Would this include a SAGD plant? Also, when using below 65 psi for exclusion does this stand true for all: liquid, vapour, or mixed streams, also in Table 1?
SAGD plant is not specifically included in Table 1 because it is not a “conventional” technique of oil production. However, it is up to the user to determine if some parts of a SAGD process may fit with the listed permitted exclusions. Please refer to answer to Inquiry #2009-14 for the second part of the question.
This question is in relation to NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-2
