This document specifies the requirements for design including shape and dimensions, material as well as strength for pipe support from NPS 2 up to NPS 36 except for U-bolt and U-strap. This document covers topside systems for fixed or floating offshore oil and gas projects. This document applies for design temperature of support within the range between –23 °C up to 200 °C. This document is limited to metallic pipes only.
This document covers such requirements for following pipe supports:
— clamped shoe;
— welded shoe;
— bracing for branch connection;
— trunnion and stanchion;
— guide support(guide, hold-down, guide/hold-down).
This document addresses design requirements of the listed items above, hence the document does not necessarily cover all other types of pipe supports.
