Risk based verification of offshore structures
|Publication Date:||1 July 2017|
This service specification is a second tier document in a suite of DNV GL's service specifications (SE) covering verification and certification for the oil and gas industry.
The suite of DNVGL-SE documents consists of a general description of the verification systematic, DNVGLSE- 0474 Risk based verification, and object specific documents like the current document.
The idea is that the general document shall give the common frame work and processes that DNV GL can benefit from doing and documenting in the same manner. The object specific ones shall tie the frame work and processes to the relevant technical aspects.
The scope of the top tier document is to give an overview of DNV GL verification services within the oil and gas industry (offshore and onshore). It introduces a three-level description of verification involvement during all phases of an asset life. Depending on the overall risk associated with an asset or particular aspects or elements within it, the service specification facilitates a categorisation into risk levels high, medium and low. The document assists in evaluation of the risk level, planning the verification through the making of a verification plan, and describing the documentation of the process.
The scope of the present document is to give detailed descriptions of DNV GL's approach to verification of structures for the oil and gas industry. It describes the elements of verification and exemplifies the type and extent of verification involvement for each of the levels high, medium and low.
The value to DNV GL's customers and the stakeholders will be the existence of an international standard allowing a transparent and predictable verification scope definition, as well as a defined terminology of verification involvement. The value to DNV GL lies in enabling the making of its services and their delivery uniform world wide.
For structures subject to DNV GL classification services see DNVGL-RU-OU-0101, DNVGL-RU-OU-0102 or DNVGL-RU-OU-0103.
This specification falls under the top level document DNVGL-SE-0474 Risk based verification.
