Offshore staff

HOVIK, Norway – A DNV GL-led joint-industry project (JIP) has released the first issue of a recommended practice for documentation of subsea operations.

The 20-member JIP has agreed on a set of typical subsea production systems and functions with common terminology, and a minimum set of documentation between the operator and contractors.

The next phase of the JIP is to extend the current scope of subsea production systems (SPS) to include subsea, umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF), and to further address documentation requirements between contractors and suppliers. Phase 3 of the JIP will be in 2016 and will include among other activities to identify an improved and shared solution for governance of information and a finalized DNV GL RP.

“The JIP group has made significant progression in standardizing the vast set of documents for designing, approving, manufacturing, verifying, operating, and maintaining subsea equipment. The RP is an important element in DNV GL’s wider drive to streamline the global subsea sector and to increase efficiency, predictability and assure quality,” explains DNV GL JIP project manager Jarl S. Magnusson.

JIP partners include Aker Subsea AS, Centrica Energi, Det norske oljeselskap ASA, DNV GL, FMC Technologies, GE Oil & Gas, GDF SUEZ E&P Norge AS, Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies AS, Lundin Norway AS, Oceaneering, OneSubsea, RWE Dea Norge AS, Statoil Petroleum AS, Subsea7, Subsea Valley, and SUNCOR.
