3. Pipeline Design

3.1. DNV Standards
DNV-OS-F101 Offshore Standard for Submarine Pipeline Systems provides acceptance criteria and design procedures for pipelines. The standard applies modern limit-state-design principles with ‘safety classes’ linked to consequences of failure. The DNV GL standard is complemented by several recommended practices (RPs):

DNV-RP-C205 Environmental Conditions and Environmental Loads
DNV-RP-F101 Corroded Pipelines
DNV-RP-F102 Pipeline Field Joint Coating and Field Repair of Linepipe Coating
DNVGL-RP-F103 Cathodic protection of submarine pipelines
DNV-RP-F105 Free-Spanning Pipelines
DNV-RP-F106 Factory Applied External Pipeline Coatings for Corrosion Control
DNV-RP-F107 Risk Assessment of Pipeline Protection
DNV-RP-F108 Fracture Control for Pipeline Installation Methods Introducing Cyclic Plastic Strain
DNV-RP-F109 On-bottom Stability Design of Submarine Pipelines
DNV-RP-F110 Global Buckling of Submarine Pipelines
DNV-RP-F111 Interference between Trawl Gear and Pipelines
DNV-RP-F113 Pipeline Subsea Repair
DNV-RP-F116 Integrity Management of Subsea Pipeline Systems
DNVGL-RP-O501 Managing sand production and erosion
