Foreword
This Guide applies to classification of design, construction and installation of offshore pipelines madeof metallic materials, as well as the periodic surveys required for maintenance of classification.Serviceability of pipelines is also addressed, but only to the extent that proper functioning of the pipeand its components affects safety. This Guide may also be used for certification or verification of design, construction and installation of pipelines. ABS will certify or verify design, construction andinstallation of offshore pipelines when requested by the Owner or mandated by governmentregulations to verify compliance with this Guide, a set of specific requirements, national standards or other applicable industry standards. If ABS certification or verification is in accordance with thisGuide and covers design, construction and installation, then the pipeline is also eligible for ABSclassification.This Guide has been written for worldwide application, and as such, the satisfaction of individualrequirements may require comprehensive data, analyses and plans to demonstrate adequacy. Thisespecially applies for pipelines located in frontier areas, such as those characterized by relatively greatwater depth or areas with little or no previous operating experience. Conversely, many provisions of this Guide often can be satisfied merely on a comparative basis of local conditions or past successful practices. The Bureau acknowledges that a wide latitude exists as to the extent and type of documentation which is required for submission to satisfy this Guide. It is not the intention of thisGuide to impose requirements or practices in addition to those that have previously provensatisfactory in similar situations.Where available, design requirements in this Guide have been posed in terms of existingmethodologies and their attendant safety factors, load factors or permissible stresses that are deemedto provide an adequate level of safety. Primarily, the Bureau's use of such methods and limits in thisGuide reflects what is considered to be the current state of practice in offshore pipeline design. At thesame time, it is acknowledged that methods of design, construction and installation are constantlyevolving. In recognition of these facts, the Guide specifically allows for such innovations and theAppendices are intended to reflect this. The application of this Guide by the Bureau will not seek toinhibit the use of any technological approach that can be shown to produce an acceptable level of safety.This ABS Guide is effective 1 May 2006 and supersedes the edition published in May 2005.
