DNVGL-RP-F119 describes requirements for flexible thermoplastic composite pipes (TCP) for offshore applications.
The RP is intended for:
- Suppliers of TCP for offshore service and suppliers of raw materials for such pipes who seek market access for their products.
- Operators, contractors and others seeking acceptance for using TCP in offshore operations.
- Suppliers and recipients of TCP who need a common technical basis for contractual reference.
This RP is intended to build trust and confidence in TCPs, that they can be safely and reliably used in offshore service. Further, it has the objective of promoting continued innovation and technology development.
