API 17N Subsea Production System Reliability, Integrity, and Technical Risk Management Don Wells Hess Corporation
History / Status Document released in 2009 Specification contains: – Life Cycle Process (LCP) – Define, Plan, Implement, Feedback (DPIF) Loop – 12 Key Practices (KP) – Technology Qualification Process – Technology Readiness Level
Initial Plan / Path Forward Process – Split into 5 subgroups (now 6) – Industry Leaders – Common Template Introduce IM into the scope of 17N: – Define IM – Expand the Life Cycle Processes – Reassessment through remediation – Define TRL progression
Expand the Life Cycle Process Feasibility Concept Selection FEEDDetailed Design Manufacturing & Assembly SIT, Installation, & Commissioning OperationDecommissioning Specification Development
Detail Change to a Dual-DPIF loop – Add Remediation cycle – Facilitates Integrity Management
Specification Development (Brownfield Projects).. and acceptance criterion
Lifecycle Application of DPIEF Cycle. DPIEF Assurance Cycle applied at each lifecycle stage – Feasibility through to decommissioning Double DPIEF loop in operations – Normal operations – Corrective action
Progress Winter Meeting Workgroups Submitted Input – Using Common Template Edited into a Single Document – Astrimar Circulated for Comment within 17N Committee – 3 rounds, 1,000+ – Last Comments Due Dec 10 th – Clarification Discussions at Jan 13 th meeting
Key Process Changes Kept Same 12 KPs from the First Revision Updated Names and Content to Accommodate the inclusion of Integrity Management
Annex Changes Standardized and Significantly Updated Annex A – Split into Two Separate Annexes Annex A -Technical Risk & Uncertainty Categorization Annex C - Risk Based Scope of Work for Reliability Technical & Integrity Management Annex B - Better Explanations and Guidance for Management Annex D – New This will change to accommodate reincorporation of 17Q stuff Integrity Management Data Collection
Issues to be Addressed at High Level The following Subjects have been introduced and referenced without Full Fidelity: – Decommissioning – Obsolescence – Field Life Extension – Human Factors – Configuration Management / MOC – Integration with Other Standards / Regulatory Documents
17Q History Last meeting, we were asked to consider combining 17Q into 17N Work indicated that this was not best approach Rationale – Different Subjects – Qualification Not Unique to 17N – Expect Revision at a Different Rate Qualification /Verification details from 17N will be Incorporated into 17Q – Accepted by Committee 17
Technology Qualifications As work on the document progressed, it became obvious that: – A great deal more effort was required to address all Qualification issues – The field of Qualification was faster moving and less mature than Reliability and Integrity Management – Qualification needed to align with DNV A-203, API 17A, API 17Q Based on the above, the 17N Qualification workgroup has recommended that the Qualification, Verification and Test Statistics content will be transferred to API 17Q
17Q Plans/Progress Path Forward – 17Q Committee reestablished to Work Plan – Made up of members of both 17Q and 17N – Currently Working Plan It was recognized and last Working Meeting that 17N and 17Q can progress at separate paces as long as 17N appropriately defines, references, etc.
17N Progress Original Plans included a “Pre-Ballot” Workshop – Change of Plans Not a New Document Large Active Committee Potential to Circulate to Washington Workshop attendees – OK? OTC Paper submitted and Presented – As part of API 17 Session
17N Plans Astrimar to Complete incorporation of Comments and 17Q Reference – May require help from Working Committees – Deliver Summary Report on Completion Issue Document to API Format, Ballot, etc. Question How do we “Deliver” to Industry – API University – Industry Training
Options A – Complete 17N ASAP – Minimum with updates of all but Qualification B – Complete 17N fully incorporating Qualification / Validation – Complete incorporation of Qualification where current 17Q becomes annex of 17N C – Complete 17N and 17Q – 17N (see A above) which refers to the new 17Q which will also be developed
Pros / Cons A – Complete 17N ASAP – Document Completed with available resources – Qualification will happen when it happens B – Complete 17N fully incorporating Qualification / Validation – Complete document delivered – Additional funds / time / resources needed C – Complete 17N and 17Q – Complete documents delivered – Benefits described before Updatable at separate paces Different Subjects Etc. – More Additional funds / time / resources needed
Explain A-203 We believe…………. This will be confirmed as part of work….
Question on Definitions Questions re definitions of Verification / Validation/ etc. have been raised API 17A will take responsibilities for definitions API 17N will provide technical input / expertise
Thanks You’s To Everyone Involved – Workgroup Leaders – Participants – Workshop Attendees – Astrimar – BSEE Large Amount of Effort by everyone Large amount of detail developed, considered and Worked Even with the Growth in Scope, effort continued and quality maintained A great deal of quality work was completed!
