... Task 1: Assess the critical drill-through equipment fastener systems and the ap propriateness of materials and coatings selected for incorporation into fasteners, for optimal performance for subsea environment operating conditions. The assessment should address the following questions and issues: Are existing industry best practices and BSEE regulations adequate enough to ensure that fasteners will perform satisfactorily in the subsea conditions under which they are expected to be used?
From page 136...
... Identify options for reducing or eliminating the identified gaps for fastener manufacture, and provide valuable insight on how/if alternative fastener designs are capable of improving safety of offshore drilling and pipeline operations. Options to include: Options on the methodology for the selection for material proper ties (such as hardness, yield, UTS, etc.)
From page 137...
... Task 7: Identification of the similarities and differences in industry standards related to the design, material specification for strength, hardness, coat ings, corrosion resistance performance in atmospheric as well as subsea application conditions, cathodic protection, performance and mainte nance requirements as related to fastener systems worldwide. Task 8: Evaluation of alternative fastener designs used globally by the oil and gas and pipeline industry (OCS, other offshore areas, onshore)
