This document specifies the requirements for design including shape and dimensions, material as well as strength for pipe support. Applicable pipe size range varies depending on support types. This document covers topside systems for fixed or floating offshore oil and gas projects. This document is applicable to design temperature of support within the range between –46 °C up to 200 °C.
This document is limited to metallic pipes, covering the following pipe supports:
— clamped shoe;
— welded shoe;
— bracing for branch connection;
— trunnion and stanchion;
— guide support (guide, hold-down, guide and hold-down, line stop).
