Wellhead Fatigue Analysis

   This Recommended Practice RP-0142 was developed and published by DNV GL class society and addresses the wellhead fatigue analysis; it is based on the ongoing Structural Well Integrity Joint Industry Project (JIP) initiated in 2010. The content of this recommended practice primarily bases on the input that was received from the participants and the service provider SES, i.e. Stress Engineering Services Inc., as well as contributions from this class society. The present document has been developed during regular project meetings and workshops that involved individuals from the participants, DNV GL and external service providers. In case consensus has not been achievable, DNV GL has sought to provide acceptable compromises. Over recent decades, the complexity and duration of offshore drilling activities has steadily increased. Additionally, equipment sizes like subsea BOP stack have grown significantly. These factors have inevitably led to the significant increase of fatigue loads that the wellhead/casing system experience. The main body of the document provides operational and system description and information on system modeling and response. The appendices contain listings of inputs required for the wellhead fatigue analysis and flow charts with the examples of WFA methods.

Competence of Lifeboat Coxswains

   Effective operating of the lifeboats on board ships poses specific challenges for the lifeboat coxswain and crew members with reference to their launching and recovery as well as handling the boat and survival in any hostile environment, following the abandonment. The present overview of competencies provided by the professionals of the DNV GL class society will help the shipping and offshore industry, from a safety management and a training and assessment perspectives. The emphasis of this standard has been made on the emergency evacuation activities, using the motor-propelled survival crafts. Both conventional and free-fall types of lifeboats have been covered by the competencies in this standard. Such competencies shall also apply to operating a designated lifeboat for the purposes of rescue or towing. Taking into account that the davit-launched liferafts are often considered a back-up means in cases where a lifeboat becomes unavailable, the coxswain must also have good skills in preparing and launching this type of rescue craft, with the crew member assigned to him. In case these rafts are treated as a primary means of evacuation, the emergency organisation on board must have dedicated crew members for both the launching stations and the liferafts, whose tasks will differ from the lifeboat coxswain that are addressed in this standard. The basic sea-survival competencies required for all seafarers are not covered by this document.
