scope:

This document provides subsea capping stack recommended practices for design, manufacture, and use. The document applies to the construction of new subsea capping stacks. The document can aid in generating a basis of design (BOD) document, as well as preservation, transportation, maintenance, testing documents, and operating instructions.

This document does not address procedures and equipment downstream of the capping stack. All equipment and operations downstream of the subsea capping stack are considered part of a containment system and are not within the scope of this recommended practice.
