Petroleum and natural gas industries — Design and operation of subsea production systems — Part 17: Guidelines for flexible pipe ancillary equipment
|Publication Date:||1 April 2010|
|ICS Code (Exploratory, drilling and extraction equipment):||75.180.10|
This part of ISO 13628 provides guidelines for the design, materials selection, analysis, testing, manufacture, handling, transportation, installation and integrity management of flexible pipe ancillary equipment. It supplements ISO 13628-16, which specifies minimum requirements for the design, material selection, manufacture, documentation, testing, marking and packaging of flexible pipe ancillary equipment.
This part of ISO 13628 presents the current best practice for design and procurement of ancillary equipment, and gives guidance on the implementation of the specification for standard flexible pipe products. In addition, this part of ISO 13628 presents guidelines on the qualification of prototype products.
The applicability relating to a specific item of ancillary equipment within this part of ISO 13628 is stated at the beginning of the clause dedicated to that item of ancillary equipment. This part of ISO 13628 applies to the following flexible pipe ancillary equipment:
a) bend stiffeners;
b) bend restrictors;
d) buoyancy modules and ballast modules;
e) subsea buoys;
f) tethers for subsea buoys and tether clamps;
g) riser and tether bases;
h) clamping devices;
i) piggy-back clamps;
j) repair clamps;
k) I/J-tube seals;
l) pull-in heads/installation aids;
n) load-transfer devices;
o) mechanical protection;
p) fire protection.
This part of ISO 13628 may be used for bonded flexible pipe ancillary equipment, though any requirements specific to these applications are not addressed.
Where relevant, the applicability of recommendations to umbilicals is indicated in the Applicability subclause for the ancillary equipment in question.
This part of ISO 13628 does not cover flexible pipe ancillary equipment beyond the connector, with the exception of riser bases and load-transfer devices. Therefore this part of ISO 13628 does not cover turret structures or I-tubes and J-tubes, for example. In addition, this part of ISO 13628 does not cover flexible pipe storage devices, for example reels.
This part of ISO 13628 is intended to cover ancillary equipment made from several material types, including metallic, polymer and composite materials. This part of ISO 13628 may also refer to material types for particular ancillary components that are not commonly used for such components currently, but may be adopted in the future.
This part of ISO 13628 applies to ancillary equipment used in association with the flexible pipe applications listed in Clause 1 of ISO 13628-2:2006 and in ISO 13628-11.
