3.1. DNV Standards

DNV-OS-F101 Offshore Standard for Submarine Pipeline Systems provides acceptance criteria and design procedures for pipelines. The standard applies modern limit-state-design principles with ‘safety classes’ linked to consequences of failure. The DNV GL standard is complemented by several recommended practices (RPs):

  • DNV-RP-C205 Environmental Conditions and Environmental Loads
  • DNV-RP-F101 Corroded Pipelines
  • DNV-RP-F102 Pipeline Field Joint Coating and Field Repair of Linepipe Coating
  • DNVGL-RP-F103 Cathodic protection of submarine pipelines
  • DNV-RP-F105 Free-Spanning Pipelines
  • DNV-RP-F106 Factory Applied External Pipeline Coatings for Corrosion Control
  • DNV-RP-F107 Risk Assessment of Pipeline Protection
  • DNV-RP-F108 Fracture Control for Pipeline Installation Methods Introducing Cyclic Plastic Strain
  • DNV-RP-F109 On-bottom Stability Design of Submarine Pipelines
  • DNV-RP-F110 Global Buckling of Submarine Pipelines
  • DNV-RP-F111 Interference between Trawl Gear and Pipelines
  • DNV-RP-F113 Pipeline Subsea Repair
  • DNV-RP-F116 Integrity Management of Subsea Pipeline Systems
  • DNVGL-RP-O501 Managing sand production and erosion
  • 0029/ND Rev 1 - 14 December 2015 - Guidelines for submarine pipeline installation

 3.2. API Standards

  • API 5L Specification for Line Pipe 
  • API RP 5LW Recommended Practice forTransportation of Line Pipe onBarges and Marine Vessels
  • API 1104, Welding of Pipelines and Related Facilities, STD
  • API 1111, Design, Construction, Operation, and Maintenance of Offshore Hydrocarbon Pipelines (Limit State Design), RP
  • ASME B31.8 Gas Transmission and DistributionPiping Systems
  • API Recommended Practice 2A-WSD. Planning, Designing, and Constructing Fixed Offshore. Platforms—Working Stress Design.
