 Committee Scope

​Subcommittee 17 (SC17) develops and maintains approximately 42 p​ublications within the following subsea production system topics:

  • subsea system,
  • wellhead and christmas tree equipment,
  • flowlines, jumpers and umbilicals,
  • flexible pipe,
  • subsea production control systems,
  • reliability, technical risk, and integrity management,
  • subsea capping stacks/response
  • completion/workover riser systems, and
  • remotely operated vehicles/tools.

Recent development in the topics of:

  • high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) design guidelines,
