Verification of subsea facilities
|Publication Date:||1 July 2017|
This DNV GL service specification gives criteria for and guidance on verification of the integrity and function of parts or phases of subsea facilities. The suite of inter-related DNVGL-SE documents consist of a general description of the verification systematics (DNVGL-SE-0474) and object specific documents - this document (DNVGL-SE-0478) offers the reader the application of the common framework and overview of processes in risk verification, to subsea facilities.
It introduces a levelled description of verification involvement during all phases of an asset's life.
The document facilitates a categorisation into risk levels high, medium and low, assisting in an evaluation of the risk level.
The document assists in planning the verification through the making of a verification plan, and describes the DNV GL documentation of the process throughout.
The document provides an international standard allowing transparent and predictable verification scope, as well as defining terminology for verification involvement.
This specification falls under the top level document DNVGL-SE-0474 Risk based verification.
The descriptions in this specification directly support a simplified verification planning as described in DNVGL-SE-0474 Sec.2. When using the advanced or combined planning, the descriptions will give good references and starting points.
