NORSOK C-002 Architectural components and equipment – standard is now to be revised – input wanted

This NORSOK standard defines the minimum functional requirements for design and construction of architectural components and equipment to be installed and used on offshore installations in the petroleum industry. The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway refers to the standard in their regulations. The standard is the basis for some 30 architectural packages to be delivered and installed on an offshore installation.

The standard is due for revision. The intention is to incorporate new knowledge and experiences within the industry, in order to further enhance HSE, design, construction, functionality, operability and maintainability of architectural components and equipment within the LQ and all other area on an offshore installation.

The revised standard will reflect current requirements, technological knowledge and operational experiences within the industry.

Briefly, the revision process will be as follows:

  • Initial industrial hearing and feedback within the industry
  • Gathering, discussing, reviewing and implementing relevant information from manufactures and suppliers per topic/chapter, inclusive any new technology
  • Gathering, discussing, reviewing and implementing relevant operational experiences from operators offshore related to each topic/chapter
  • Assessment by EGC of all received information with basis in the groups special competence and experiences within the field
  • Issue of revised draft standard for final industrial hearing and feedback
  • Review and assess relevant comments for final implementation
  • Issue of revised standard C-002
