OSLO, NorwayDNV GL has published a new recommended practice (RP) for welding and inspection of subsea equipment.

The guidance, developed through a joint industry project with 12 operators, contractors and fabricators that started in February 2017, is designed to streamline manufacturing processes and cut lead-times and costs.

DNVGL-RP-B204 Welding of subsea production system equipment outlines requirements and best practice guidelines to ensure consistency in the fabrication of subsea pressure retaining equipment such as wellheads, xmas trees, manifolds, and jumpers.

According to DNV GL, the RP has already been included as a contract reference in several new subsea development projects.
