EI 1535 Minimum criteria to determine acceptability of additives for use in multi-product pipelines co-transporting jet fuel - Additive Listing

EI 1535 describes the minimum information required from suppliers and shippers of additive-containing products in multi-product pipeline systems that co-transport jet fuel to demonstrate to pipeline operators and other interested parties that these products will not subsequently adversely affect jet fuel or have an adverse effect on pipeline operations.

Several multi-product pipeline operators have previously made available in the public domain lists of those additives that they have assessed and have found to be satisfactory in their pipeline operations (in most cases this will have involved reference to IP Multi-product pipelines: Minimum criteria to determine additive acceptability). The following table is a composite of the former lists from pipeline operators, which has been updated and is now being maintained as an informative reference for all fuel suppliers/shippers and pipeline operators worldwide.

Multi-product pipeline operators are invited to provide further information to update this list by submitting to EI details of any other additives that they have assessed in accordance with IP Multi-product pipelines: Minimum criteria to determine additive acceptability (1st or 2nd editions), or if evaluated since October 2016, EI 1535 3rd edition1, AND with which they have auditable experience of satisfactory use in their pipeline operations.

For EI to add an additive to this list, the following information is required to be submitted to technical@energyinst.org by a multi-product pipeline operator:

  • The name of the additive manufacturer.
  • The name of the additive.
  • The maximum treat rate evaluated.
  • A statement confirming that the additive was evaluated in accordance with IP Multi-product pipelines: Minimum criteria to determine additive acceptability (1st or 2nd editions), or if evaluated since October 2016, EI 1535 3rd edition.
  • A statement that the pipeline operator has auditable evidence of its successful use in that pipeline operator’s pipeline system.

The multi-product pipeline operator is also invited to provide optional information regarding the pipeline system in which the additive has been successfully used (length, diameter, lined/unlined, product flow rate, use of buffers without additives etc.)

Note that additives nominated solely by additive manufacturers/suppliers for inclusion in this list will not be included.

The inclusion of an additive in this list shall in no way be inferred or interpreted as implying any form of endorsement by the EI or its members that developed the technical content of EI 1535. The EI has not undertaken any technical review/assessment/validation of the potential impact of these additives on jet fuel, and neither the EI nor its members that developed the technical content of EI 1535 shall be held liable for their use in multi-product pipeline systems. The additives are listed by manufacturer alphabetically. The list shall not be interpreted as implying any order of preference.

This list does not include details of any additives that are approved by specification authorities for use in jet fuel. See for instance, Def Stan 91-91 or ASTM D1655 for further details of approved jet fuel additives.

IP Multi-product pipelines: Minimum criteria to determine additive acceptability was renamed as EI 1535 Minimum criteria to determine acceptability of additives for use in multi-product pipelines co-transporting jet fuel upon publication of the 3rd edition.
