DNV GL Launches JIP To Standardize Subsea DocumentationSource: Offshore | 27 May 2014
DNV GL has launched a joint industry project (JIP) to standardize subsea documentation.
A typical subsea project can involve more than 10,000 documents (with up to 80,000 in a complex project) over a life cycle of 30 years. To develop, maintain, and verify the quality, security, accuracy, and availability of documentation, operators, contractors, and suppliers will often spend millions of dollars on document management, technical review, and information management systems.
“The aim of this broad industry collaboration initiated by DNV GL and the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association is to develop a standardized set of subsea-system documents for designing, approving, manufacturing, verifying, operating, and maintaining equipment,” explained Jarl S. Magnusson, the JIP project manager for DNV GL Oil & Gas.
