Risk based corrosion management
|Publication Date:||1 July 2015|
The risk based corrosion management process and corrosion background given in this document, is relevant for any floating offshore vessel type, i.e. mobile offshore units (MOU), ship shaped, semi-submersible, jack up, and for all different functions, i.e. FPSO, LNG terminal, drilling, etc.
The envisaged users of this RP are foremost, professionals and organizations managing floating offshore-assets (from here indicated as 'owner'). The RP is relevant for professionals supporting the owner in managing his asset, e.g. design houses, yards and surveyors.
It is emphasized that the document is not intended to provide a detailed description in corrosion and treatment techniques; which are referred to in: DNV-RP-B101 Corrosion protection of floating production and storage units, DNV-RP-B401 Cathodic Protection Design and DNV-RP-C301 Design, fabrication, operation and qualification of bonded repair of steel structures.
Neither is the document intended to guide the establishment of risk management in an organization. This would require a detailed discussion of organizational principles and framework, which are outside the scope of this document.
