Across the oil and gas industry, life extension of assets and infrastructure is an increasingly important issue for operators as they look to balance the integrity, safety and productivity of the asset. To reflect the changing needs of the industry, DNV GL has worked together with its industry partners to update two recommended practices (RP). The first for corroded pipelines (DNV-RP F101) and the second for integrity management of submarine pipeline systems (DNV-RP-F116).

The updates have been developed through the completion of joint industry projects (JIPs). The revisions aim to further support the decision-making processes related to maintaining the integrity of pipeline systems in the following areas:

extension of in-service operation costly repairs and replacements long-term planning of activities based on balanced evaluations of both technical and non-technical issues; and continuous improvement of integrity management systems.

Felix Saint-Victor, Principal Engineer - Pipelines & Materials, DNV GL Oil & Gas, says: “By its very nature, the pipeline sector is constantly evolving to meet regulatory requirements, address technology advances and react to an often volatile economic market. Likewise, recommended practices must keep ahead with these changes.
