PD 8010-2:2004 gives recommendations for and guidance on the design, use of materials, construction, installation, testing, commissioning and abandonment of carbon steel subsea pipelines in offshore, nearshore and landfall environments. Guidance on the use of flexible composite pipelines is also given.

It is not intended to replace or duplicate hydraulic, mechanical or structural design manuals.
This part of PD 8010 is applicable to subsea pipelines intended for the conveyance of hydrocarbon liquids, hydrocarbon gases and other gases, liquids and gases in two-phase flow, fluid-based slurries and water.

NOTE Although primarily concerned with subsea pipelines associated with the oil and gas industry, PD 8010-2 is likely to have application to a wider range of offshore activities.

This part of PD 8010 does not give recommendations for pipelines on land, which are covered in PD 8010-1. It does not cover sea outfalls (see BS EN 752-4) or fluid umbilicals (see BS 5173).
