51-fr-15333.pdf (774.67 KB)

These amendments update the existing incorporation by reference of the American Petroleum Institute (API) specifications for steel line pipe, API 5L, 5LS, and 5LX, by adopting the 1985 edition of API Specification 5L for gas and hazardous liquid pipelines. API 5L, 5LS, and 5LX have been consolidated into one specification by the API. Editions prior to the 1985 edition are out of print, although provisions are made for their appropriate use.
