To eliminate the hazard of direct and indirect impact of lightning discharges on trunk pipeline facilities of oil and petroleum products regular inspection of grounding and lightning protection systems (G&LP) is organized. Experience allowed developing a methodology for G&LP systems testing. The performed analysis and criteria allows determining reasonable deadlines for the elimination of G&LP non-conformances with design documentation and standards, timely identify non-conformities and plan their elimination, improve
the requirements for the quality of oil pipelines construction and operation, thereby increasing the operational reliability of hazardous industrial facilities.
