At the seminar, you will be presented with user examples on how the RP can reduce cost significantly and facilitate the standardization of the technical documentation required for a typical subsea field development project.
Background for the RP
In a joint-industry project (JIP) lead by DNV GL, a number of leading operators and contractors have worked together to simplify and standardize the required technical documentation for subsea projects.
The challenge was to scope and agree upon a typical set of subsea systems and functions, its required minimum set of documentation, and, furthermore, to agree upon documentation definitions and a method to allow for company specific requirements. The solution is to practically improve industry practices through a DNV GL Recommended Practice.
Increased predictability will improve industry practices; helping operators, contractors and suppliers to better understand and manage subsea documentation, and benefit from reduced lead time, less documentation, a sharing paradigm, increased awareness, transparency and improved quality.
The resulting Recommended Practice, DNVGL-RP-O101 'Technical documentation for subsea projects', is expected to be widely adopted in the industry, with both operators and major EPC contractors preparing for its implementation. Statoil will present how they will take the RP into use and include it in future tenders.
