Fire Protection Research Foundation report: "Validation of Installation Methods for CSST Gas Piping to Mitigate Lightning Related Damage - Phase 1 Final Report"
Author: SEFTIM
Date of issue: April 2011

Foreword

Installation requirements in NFPA 54, the National Fuel Gas Code, and various manufacturers’ instructions address recommended bonding for CSST gas piping. However, a number of fires have been reported resulting from gas leaks from punctures in CSST Piping due to lightning events.

The goal of this Phase I study was to carry out a literature review and gap analysis to inform a future research project designed to validate installation methods for CSST gas piping to mitigate damage due to lighting events.
