14 Page 14 of 35 4 GLOSSARY Base case: The preferred route / project selected by undertaking an assessment of all route / project alternatives. Commissioning Phase: De-commissioning Phase: Espoo Convention: Gauge plate: Hydro-testing: J-lay installation Micro-tunnelling: Mop absorber: Non-Destructive Testing (NDT): The process of assuring that all systems and components of a building or industrial plant are designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to the operational requirements of the owner or final client The process of removing above-ground project structures and buildings, and the reinstatement of the area affected by the project. As a cross-border project, the TAP is subject to international conventions and national legislation in each of the countries through which it passes. Before construction starts, Environmental Impact and Social Impact Assessments will be completed for each country. At the international level, the Espoo Convention stipulates the obligations of parties to assess the environmental impact of certain activities at an early stage of planning. It also outlines the general obligation of states to notify and consult each other on all major projects under consideration that are likely to have a significant trans-national environmental impact. A special tool made of carbon steel, manufactured to exact dimensions, installed in the PIGs for cleaning and monitoring the internal pipeline. Hydrotesting (or hydrostatic testing) is the most common method for testing the integrity of the pipeline and checking for any potential leaks (e.g. from faulty welds or cracked pipe work) prior to commissioning. The test involves placing water inside the pipeline at a certain pressure to check that the pipeline is not damaged and will not leak during operation. J-lay offshore pipeline installation was developed for laying pipe in deep waters as it puts less stress on the pipeline by installing the pipeline in an almost vertical position. The pipe joints are on J-lay vessels/barges welded to the pipeline almost vertically via a tall tower on the boat, and then lowered into the sea under tension. The J-lay method becomes impractical for shallower waters where depth of less than 150 m limit the shape of the pipe angle and impose sever bending stresses on the pipe. Microtunnelling is a digging technique used to construct narrow diameter tunnels by means of a remotely operated Microtunnel Boring Machine (TBM). In most microtunnelling operations, the concrete pipe is inserted from the entry, and pushed behind the machine. This is a process often called pipe jacking. As the machine advances, more tunnel liner is pushed from the entrance. A special type of rope that dipped into the contaminated liquid, remove both the liquid and the oil. Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a wide group of analysis techniques used in science and industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage to it. NDT does not permanently alter the article being inspected. Common NDT methods include ultrasonic, magnetic particle, liquid penetrant, radiographic, and eddy-current testing. Each pipeline weld will be checked using a NDT system.
15 Page 15 of 35 Pipeline Inspection Gauge (pig): Pre-Commissioning Phase Primary Contractors: Pipeline Receiving Terminal (PRT): Safety Zone (Inner): Safety Zone (Enlarged): S-lay installation Southern Gas Corridor: Study : Inspection gauges used to perform various maintenance operations on a pipeline such as remove dust or fluids and drying. This can be done without stopping the gas flow in the pipeline. The pig is inserted into a 'pig launcher' (or 'launching station') - a funnel shaped Y section in the pipeline. The launcher / launching station is then closed and the gas pressure driven flow in the pipeline is used to push it along down the pipe until it reaches the receiving trap - the 'pig catcher' (or receiving station). There are several types depending on the device built-in to perform the cleaning tasks: foam or brush pigs. The pipe cleaning process by means of pigs is usually known as pigging or swabbing. The project phase that consists of preparation activities necessary for the commissioning of a facility (e.g. pipeline system testing / hydrotesting). An individual or entity that has a direct contractual relationship with the client or owner of the project. The primary contractor is responsible for providing either, by itself, or through subcontract arrangements with other individuals or entities, all of the design of services and activities required for the project. The terminal point of the TAP system constituting the connection with the Italian national grid of Snam Rete Gas. The main functions of the PRT will be to control the gas pressure and temperature to meet the grid requirements and measure the gas flow for fiscal requirements. The construction of new third party structures will be restricted within an inner safety zone of 40 m (i.e. 20 m from each side of the centreline) along the pipeline route. Inside this safety zone, no new buildings will be permitted, and only agricultural activities will be allowed. The enlarged safety zone will be a corridor of 400 m (i.e. 200 m to both sides of the centreline). Inside this zone no facilities able to accommodate >100 people or dwelling clusters > 300 people will be allowed. S-lay offshore pipeline installation was originally developed for shallow waters but now has also evolved for operation in deep waters. The pipeline is assembled on a horizontal working plane. As welding progresses, the pipeline is gradually lowered to the seabed behind the pipelaying vessel, supported by a stinger (a steel structure protruding from the end of the firing line supporting the pipeline on rollers, to avoid pipe buckling). The name S-lay refers to the pipeline shape on its way to the seabed. A European Commission initiative to supply natural gas to Europe from the Caspian and Middle Eastern regions. The study area is defined as a 2 km corridor along the proposed pipeline centre line (1 km wide either side) and 1 km from the Pipeline Receiving Terminal. The width of this area has been identified to evaluate the potential impacts of the TAP Project. Supporting Facilities: Additional infrastructure required to operate the pipeline, including: Compressor Stations to maintain pressure in the pipeline and help the transportation of gas from one location to another (not present in the italian section); Block Valve Stations to enable the interruption of gas flow and isolate specific segments of the line if maintenance is required or in case of an emergency; Pipeline Receiving Terminal to control and measure the gas flow at the delivery point in the SRG network. TAP AG: A joint venture company to develop and operate the Trans Adriatic Pipeline. The shareholder structure of TAP AG comprises BP (20%), SOCAR (20%), Statoil (20%), Fluxys (16%), Total (10%), E.ON (9%) and Axpo (5%).
16 Page 16 of 35 The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP): The Project Upstream (of prevailing current) Working Strip: A natural gas pipeline system that will start in Greece, at the Turkish border, cross Albania and the Adriatic Sea and come ashore in southern Italy, allowing gas to flow directly from the Caspian region to European markets. The Italian section of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline. This will consist of an approximately 45 km offshore section of pipeline, a landfall, a Block Valve Station, an 8.2 km onshore section of pipeline and a Pipeline Receiving Terminal. Moving or situated in the opposite direction from that in which a current flows. The working strip is the corridor used for pipeline construction activities. The width of the regular construction working strip for the TAP Project in Italy is 26 m (11 m wide on one side for the stockpiling of trench excavated material and 15 m on the other to allow pipeline assembly and for transit of vehicles/machinery). A reduced working strip, 22 m wide, will be applied when required due to technical reasons (i.e. connection to access roads).
