Gas infrastructure - Gas pressure regulating stations for transmission and distribution - Functional requirements

This European Standard contains the relevant functional requirements for gas pressure regulating stations, which form part of gas transmission or distribution systems. It is applicable to the design, materials, construction, testing, operation and maintenance of gas pressure regulating stations. This European Standard does not apply to gas pressure regulating stations commissioned prior to the publication of this standard. The stations covered by this European Standard have a maximum upstream operating pressure which does not exceed 100 bar. For higher maximum upstream operating pressures this standard should be used as a guideline. If the inlet pipework of the station is a service line and the maximum upstream operating pressure does not exceed 16 bar and the design flow rate is equal to or less than 200 m3/h under normal conditions, EN 12279 applies. Basic system requirements for gas pressure regulating stations are contained in this European Standard. Requirements for individual components (valves, regulators, safety devices, pipes, etc.) or installation of the components a
