Improving HSSE performance and contributing to value creation

Subsea Committee

The Subsea Committee provides Member Companies with a forum for open and constructive dialogue on the diverse challenges, issues and opportunities associated with the Committee’s objectives.

The Subsea Committee includes SURF (subsea facilities from tubing hanger to boarding valve, umbilicals, risers, and flowlines) and underwater portion of export systems (pipelines, risers, insolation valves, etc.). The scope of work encompasses design, manufacture, installation, operation and decommissioning – including integrity, reliability, production efficiency and obsolescence of the facilities over their entire lifecycle.

Objectives

The purpose and vision of the Subsea Committee is to improve performance and contribute to value creation with a focus on the following priority areas and supporting themes:

Priority area: HSSE (Health, Safety, Security, Environment)

  • Supporting theme: lifetime extension

Priority area: SSI (Simplification, Standardization, Industrialization)

  • Supporting themes: application of robotics and digital technologies through qualification alignment and supplier engagement

Priority area: CCS (Carbon Capture and Sequestration)

  • Supporting themes: HSSE and SSI areas with supporting themes

Priority area: Flexible Pipe

  • The Flexible Pipe Subcommittee provides a forum for international operators to share knowledge and experience of flexible pipe operation, integrity management, and service life assessment to continuously reduce safety & environmental risks and improve overall lifetime costs
