Dangerous dead legs

An incident of a hydrocarbon leak in a plant occurred due to a dead leg. An oil leak was traced to a small hole at the lower end of a pipework elbow. The line was not in use and had the stagnant liquid created a deadleg which caused the corrosion. The CSB video "Fire from ice" depicts the hazards of dead legs. Are you looking at dead legs?
