I. OBJECTIVES Objectives of this study are as follow: To re-assess the criticality of anomalous free spans with regards to the seabed characteristic and real case pipeline operation whilst maintaining the integrity of pipeline throughout its useful remaining life. To provide recommendation for freespans rectification works includes number of rectification work and approved method To provide inspection and monitoring requirements, controlling parameters for future use of underwater inspection project.

III.1. To perform freespans assessment as per fatigue life assessment and ultimate limit strength for the following freespans as per methodology provided in Article IV. III.2. To perform reassessment of freespans based on interacting multiple single spans as per historical finding from as laid inspection and baseline inspection provided by company. This work items shall includes: Review of pipeline inspection reports Performing freespans interacting analysis based on DNV RP-F105 Assess acceptance criteria by comparing survey result versus allowable static span lengths Review historical freespans from as laid survey, baseline inspection and future governing cases. III.3. To assess the criticality of unsupported tube turns as found from the latest underwater inspection. III.4. To provide solid and sound engineering recommendation for the pipeline freespans rectification includes but not limited to number of rectification work, specification of rectification (e.g. grout bag, mattress, rock damping, etc), and acceptance criteria. III.5. To provide final report as deliverable of study that shall include original calculation sheet, FEA model (if required), and calculation report. III.6. To bare all cost arise due the use of proprietary or third party modeling software required to perform analysis required for this study. IV. METHODOLOGY
