Subsea Plem

Subsea Plem

Subsea Plem

Can somebody advise me what the usual pIping specification is for the piping and valves within the limits of a subsea PLEM .I am used to using 31.3 but would like to know if there are alternatives used by others


RE: Subsea Plem

Any of the pipeline codes you're using will cover PLEMs as well.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

RE: Subsea Plem

Another alternative is to mix and match standards to achieve design/cost optimisation objectives. Naturally, that approach isn't generally applied for an 'off the shelf' strategy.

The last Sub-Sea project I was involved with:
Manifolds - ASME B31.3
PLETs - ASME B31.8 / DNV-OS-F101
Hope that helps,
