9. The design of curvilinear elements (bent, cast, stamped) shall be determined by pipeline project.

10. Thickness of wall of bent element (knee) on any its site shall be accepted as value which size is at least values established by calculation on durability.

11. The size of thinning of wall is checked by measurement of thickness of wall after the cutting of gib made in selective procedure at the discretion of the company owner of the pipeline.

12. The arrangement of welded connections of the pipeline shall provide possibility of their control with the methods determined by the project.

13. Welding end-to-end with complete pro-melting is applied to connection of pipes and shaped details.

Angular welded connections are allowed for welding to pipelines of unions, pipes, flat flanges. Angular connections shall be executed with complete pro-melting.

14. In joint welded connections of elements with the different thickness of walls smooth transition which tilt angle of surfaces shall be no more than 15 °, from bigger to smaller section, by unilateral or bilateral machining of the end of element with thicker wall shall be provided.

15. When welding pipes and other elements with longitudinal and spiral welded seams, the last shall be displaced one concerning another. At the same time the size of shift constitutes at least 100 mm. This requirement does not extend to pipes and elements with outer diameter less than 100 mm.

16. For cross joint welded connections the distance between axes of the next welded seams in direct sections of the pipeline shall make: for pipes with a diameter of 219 mm and smaller diameter - there is at least triple diameter of the welded pipe (elements), for pipes with a diameter over 219 mm - at least 500 mm. Distance from axis of welded seam prior to the beginning of pipe bend - at least 100 mm.

17. In case of installation of steeply curved, stamped and shtamposvarny knees the arrangement of cross welded connections at the beginning of curve and welding among themselves of steeply curved knees without direct site is allowed.

18. For angular welded connections of pipes and unions with elements of pipelines the distance from outside surface of element prior to the beginning of gib of pipe or axis of cross joint seam shall make:

1) for pipes (unions) with outer diameter up to 100 mm - is at least outer diameter of pipe, but at least 50 mm;

2) for pipes (unions) with the outer diameter of 100 mm and more - at least 100 mm.

19. The distance from axis of cross welded connection of the pipeline to edge of support or suspension bracket is chosen, proceeding from possibility of carrying out survey and control.

20. In case of elevated laying of air ducts and gas pipelines (inert gases) joint laying with technology pipelines of different function, except as specified, contradicting other safety rules is allowed.

21. Armature shall be established in places convenient for servicing and repair. For servicing of armature, ladders and platforms are arranged.

22. The bearing pipeline constructions, shall be expected vertical loading from the mass of the pipeline filled with water and covered with isolation taking into account the efforts arising in case of temperature deformations (stretchings, compression).

Support and suspension brackets of pipelines shall be calculated without the mass of water in case of hydraulic testing, but taking into account the mass of working environment.

30. The electric equipment of compressor station, the electric equipment, electric chains of management system and power supply grounding structures of compressor station is carried out according to requirements of Regulations for electrical installation, the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan approved by the order of March 20, 2015 No. 230 (it is registered in the Register of state registration of regulatory legal acts No. 10851) (further – Regulations for electrical installation).

31. To the territory of compressor station and to all its constructions sidings with paving are arranged.
