    Revision could not get approved now need to reinstate with revision The squeeze off process is commonly used on pipe used in various applications such as gas, water, oil gathering, process water, geothermal and other applications. Recently state regulators have been pushing back on the use of squeeze off because these other applications are not stated in the scope of the 3 ASTM standards that govern squeeze off. This project is to add these piping applications to the scope and body of F1563-11 so that squeeze off can continue to be allowed in these other applications.
