A

Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will conduct a public workshop and follow-on consensus study to address reliability issues associated with the connectors and other fastener systems used in critical safety components and equipment for offshore oil and natural gas operations (“Connectors”).

The topics to be addressed by the workshop will be

  1. Connectors currently in use, and the systems in place for selecting the design, manufacture, materials requirements: mechanical properties (yield strength, tensile strength, hardness), coatings, loading, corrosion performance, and cathodic protection of those Connectors;
  2. Connector performance and failures in an undersea environment, including factors that contribute to their successful performance and failure, and procedures for identifying failure mechanisms and root cause analyses;
  3. Manufacturing processes in place for Connectors, such as heat treatment, coating, and machining, safety management, and the use of industry quality standards in developing those processes;
  4. Quality assurance and quality control procedures in place for the manufacturing of Connectors, including industry quality management system oversight of subcontractors (second tier & third tier) where appropriate;
  5. Standards and regulations in use today globally in a variety of industries such as refineries, aerospace, nuclear, military, naval (submarine and ship) and automotive and jurisdictions, as applied to similar types of fasteners. A summary of the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.

The Planning Committee on Connector Reliability for Offshore Oil and Natural Gas Operations held the Workshop on Bolting Reliability for Offshore Oil and Natural Gas Operations in Washington, D.C., on April 10-11, 2017. The workshop was designed to advance and develop a comprehensive awareness of the outstanding issues associated with fastener material failures and equipment reliability issues. Speakers and participants were also encouraged to discuss possible paths for ameliorating risks associated with fasteners used for subsea critical equipment in oil and gas operations. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
