This document aims to provide best practice technical guidance for subsea umbilical design (SUT) design, in order to aid in making informed choices during the design phase.
This document was generated in response to the increasing difficulties in installation of high-functionality SUTs, due to their increasing size.
This document is intended to be used as a reference guide by operators, umbilical termination assembly (UTA) and umbilical specifiers, installers and font-end engineering design (FEED) companies. It is also intended to be used as a reference document to enable reviews to be undertaken to ensure that installation risk has been properly considered as part of SUT design and operation reviews.
Additionally, the document has been designed to be educational such that persons new to the industry, or, less experienced persons within the industry, can understand the implications of UTA design on installation feasibility.
This document aims at capturing the primary aspects impacting on the overall dimensions and weight of the UTA, and highlighting the consequences of design choices.
This document excludes multibore hub connection-type (MHC) UTAs which can connect the umbilical directly to other subsea hardware. Although MHC UTAs are out of scope, many of the guidelines in this document would apply.
