Studies have been performed to propose reliability based design criteria for the installation of pipelines in the Bay of Campeche, Mexico. This paper summarizes the reliability formulations that were used to develop Allowable Stress Design and Load and Resistance Factor Design guidelines for Ultimate Limit State conditions, background on the target reliabilities that were used in the development, and the methods that were used to characterize the demands (loads, displacements) induced in pipelines during their installation. This paper summarizes data that was gathered during the installation of pipelines in the Bay of Campeche to help define the Biases (actual stresses/calculated stresses) associated with the analytical model used to predict installation demands. These results are compared with those published previously based on other field and laboratory tests. A companion paper details the analyses of pipeline Ultimate Limit State capacities and the Biases associated with these capacities.
