Notice Type Improvement Notice
Description You have not taken appropriate measures to prevent fire and explosion in that your pipework inspection activities, which are intended to prevent the uncontrolled release of flammable substances because of external corrosion, have not been effective in that your report SAL10601 for the utility gas pipework line number 2.0” GU-61027-C2A states that it is a redundant line, when in fact you continued to use it for gas utility service and that furthermore you did not act on your inspection report of 2009 for this line, which identified that it was subject to significant external corrosion and this corrosion then developed to the extent that on 08 August 2014 there was an uncontrolled release of hydrocarbon gas through a hole that had formed through the side-wall of the line, thus resulting in a risk of fire and/or explosion
