to be considered as average) of water depth and about 60 km from the coast. The OCTP block is regulated by a
Petroleum Agreement signed on 15th March 2006 between the Republic of Ghana (Minister of Energy) and
the Contractor group, formed by:
Eni Ghana E&P Limited
Vitol Upstream Ghana Limited
GNPC

P.I. = 47.22%;
P.I. = 37.78%;
P.I. = 15%;

W.I. (expl. phase) = 55.56%


W.I. (expl. phase) = 44.44%
W.I. (expl. phase) = 0%

GNPC (Ghana National Petroleum Corporation) has an additional 5% back-in exercisable within 30 days of the
date the commerciality is declared taking then their paying share to 20%; Enis equity reduces to 44.44% and
Vitol to 35.56% as consequence.
The exploration period consists of 7 years and the second exploration period expired on the 14 th of March
2013. The commerciality of the gas discoveries has been declared and approved while, end of March 2013, an
extension of the appraisal phase for the oil level has been requested for the drilling of the appraisal well
Sankofa East 3A.

Pipe supports attached to flange connections shall be avoided unless approved by Pipe Stress Engineer.

8.2

Design Stresses

Combined bending stresses in the support structure shall not exceed 2/3 x yield stress for maximum operating
loads.
Local pipe stresses must be evaluated for welded attachments (shoes, trunnions, linestops, etc.) taking
consideration of all operating cases including thermal, deadweight, internal pressure, dynamic reactions and
environmental. Combined stresses shall be no more than 1.5x Sch for material as given by ASME B31.3.

steelwork be within the range -10C to 200C for carbon steel.

9.2

Non-Insulated Carbon Steel Lines

NPS 2 - 14
Lines may rest on the support steel with due consideration to local indentation, local corrosion, and pipe wear.
Bare pipe shall have a 5mm thick PTFE isolation pad between pipe and supporting steel, fixed to steel by
adhesive, or screws.
NPS 16 - 24
Lines shall be supported on shoes. Shoes to be clamped wherever possible.

9.3

Insulated Carbon Steel Lines

NPS 2 - 14
Carbon steel lines NPS 2 - 14 with personnel protection shall have the insulation locally removed for
supporting, and be supported as un-insulated pipe, with due consideration to local indentation, local
corrosion, and pipe wear. Bare pipe shall have a 5mm thick PTFE isolation pad between pipe and supporting
steel, fixed to steel by adhesive, or screws.
NPS 16 - 24
All other insulated lines shall be supported on shoes. Shoes are to be clamped wherever possible.

9.4

Non-Insulated Stainless Steel 316/316L and Duplex

9.6

Welded Attachment to Pipe

For all welded attachments to the pipe (except trunnions), the weld shall be C.F.W. (continuous fillet weld).
The minimum distance from a pipe support attachment weld to any other weld on the parent pipe (e.g.
circumferential butt welds) shall be 50mm or 2.5 x pipe wall thickness, whichever is the greater.
All attachments welded to stress relieved pipes shall themselves be stress relieved. However, where the pipe
has been supplied with a load distribution pad, then the attachment may be welded to the pad without stress
relieving.

avoided wherever possible using line size trunnions if required. Thin wall trunnions shall be checked for local
buckling. A checked calculation sheet shall be filed for each trunnion.
Note: For very highly loaded trunnions attached to elbows, the selection of out of spec thicker elbows may be
considered provided a suitable tapered joint can be made between mismatched bores.

9.9

Penetrations

The design of supports next to the penetrations shall avoid any fouling of the seals and the sleeves around the
penetration. Welding in any restricted areas around the penetrations shall also be avoided.

9.10 Dissimilar Metals


The use of dissimilar metals in the design of a pipe support shall be avoided wherever possible. In situations
where it is unavoidable, then the differing materials should be protected by providing suitable galvanic
isolation, e.g painting, epoxy coating, etc.
Welding between stainless steel and carbon steel is acceptable provided the distance from the weld to the
parent pipe and / or primary steel is at least 50mm or the thickness of insulation, whichever is the greater.
Welding must be carried out using approved procedures.

Carbon steel and stainless steel may be bolted together using galvanised bolts, as long as a suitable isolating
strip is provided between the two metals.

9.11 Support for Pipe NPS 1 and Below


Supports for non-stress critical pipes NPS 1 (DN40) and smaller may be site adjusted as required. Additional
supports may also be included by the fabricator. Guiding and supporting shall be sufficient to withstand
operation, wind loads, and transit accelerations. Appendix II includes recommendations for spans for small
bore pipe.
U-Bolting of small pipes is permissible with due consideration of galvanic isolation where dissimilar materials
may be in contact (in such cases an isolation pad, and insulated U-Bolts are to be used).

10.

FABRICATION RECORDS AND TRACEABILITY

10.1 Material Traceability


All pipe support materials directly welded to the pipe shall be covered by material certificates EN 10204 type
3.1 (previously 3.1B), all other materials shall be covered by material certificates EN 10204 type 2.2.
Material for pipe supports is not required to be traceable to material certificates after fabrication. Fabricators
must have a system to control and identify material grades during fabrication, and be able to certify that the
correct materials have been supplied in each component.

10.2 Weld Traceability


Weld traceability shall be maintained by assigning unique numbers to individual welds or groups of welds
which will be entered into a Weld Summary List.
The Weld Summary List shall contain the following:
Weld Number
Drawing Number(s)
Piping Line No. (as per P&ID, or Piping Fabrication Isometric)
WPS Number(s)
Welder Identification Number(s)
Inspection Report Number(s)
NDT Report(s)
Weld numbering shall be established by the Fabricator. Numbering can be per individual weld, but for pipe
supports it is expected that weld numbers can be grouped. For simple fabrications where only one weld type is
used, a single weld number can be assigned to all welds on one support or a group of identical supports.
The level of detail in assigning numbers shall be sufficient to demonstrate that the Fabricator has control of
the application of weld procedures, welder qualification, and inspection status.

11.

STANDARD SUPPORT ITEMS

11.1 General
Standard pipe support components as per Appendix III shall be used where ever possible.

11.2 Shoes
Topside Piping:
Shoes will be 100 mm high (measured from B.O.P to T.O.S) as standard and for insulation thickness upto
60mm. Where insulation thickness is 76 mm to 125 mm thick then a shoe height of 150 mm is to be used. The

use of 150 mm high shoes (or higher) is also required where line temperatures are less than -46C for
sustained periods, and for sloped lines, to facilitate adjustment.
Marine Piping:
Non-insulated pipes: Pipes shall be supported on bonded wear pad except piping systems inside cargo oil
tanks where pipes can be set directly on pipe support steel structure.
Shoes will be 100 mm high (measured from B.O.P to T.O.S) as standard and for insulation thickness upto
60mm. Where insulation thickness is 76 mm to 125 mm thick then a shoe height of 150 mm is to be used.
Shoes and welded attachments to the pipe will be in the pipe support contractor/fabricators scope of supply,
and in general will follow requirements of this specification, unless otherwise noted.

11.3 Isolation Components


Isolation components shall be used where protection from galvanic action is required due to dissimilar
materials, or to reduce transmitted vibrations from lines subject to acoustic vibration.
Isolating material for general galvanic separation requirements shall be PTFE. Proprietary insulated U-Bolts
with Polyolefin or Neoprene coating, and Pipe Clamps with Comlin Gr. FR80, TICO HT/CL, or Companys
approved equivalent isolation clip strips are permissible. Proprietary isolation components may be substituted
for the above materials with COMPANY approval.
The isolation materials shall be suitable for service temperatures of -50C to 200C.

11.4 Low Friction Slide Units


When installing low friction slide units care shall be taken to prevent excessive heat due to welding and the
bearing surfaces shall be protected from weld splatter.
Low friction sliding plates shall be used when advised by the Piping Stress Department or the Structural
department. The effect of friction shall be calculated based on the following:
Surface Friction factor
Steel to steel 0.3
Steel to PTFE 0.1
PTFE to PTFE shall not be used.

12.

SPRING SUPPORT

Pipe-supports should be located as close as possible to heavy valves, strainers, orifice flanges, removable
spools, etc.
Pipe-support location, especially guides, linestops etc., shall not restrict flexibility of piping system to the point
of over-stressing it.
The location of spring supports shall ensure that load adjusters, load flanges, fixing bolts, etc. are accessible for
adjustment or removal.
Under no circumstances shall a pipe support be placed where it presents a hazard to personnel, also it is not
permitted to encroach into escape routes. A clear head room of 2300 mm over all escape routes must be
maintained. Pipe-supports shall not restrict withdrawal areas, equipment maintenance areas, or interfere with
the installation or removal of maintenance blinds and spacers. Enough clearance shall be maintain above
material handling route.
Consideration shall be made for support deflections arising from load-out, transit or lift conditions. In general,
temporary supports are to be avoided, however, if required are to be clearly identified (e.g. painted Signal
Brown RAL8002), and removed prior to commissioning. In cases where the support may need to be removed
to avoid overstressing the pipe during load-out etc, consideration of removable, or adjustable supports are to
be considered (e.g. pipe clamps).

13.2 Structural Considerations


Location of supports shall maximise the use of existing structure with additional structural members being
kept to a minimum.
Support loads and height exceeding the allowable limits defined in this sepcification shall be designed by
Structure discipline.
All pipe supports which transmit loads above 10 KN to a structural member shall be closely coordinated with
Contractors Structural Department.
Generally, the following are not allowed:
Supports fixed to truss diagonals should in general be avoided.
Supports which will cause torsion in the structural steel member.
Supports onto un-stiffened deck plate.
