A new edition of NORSOK S-002 Working environment, is published
NORSOK S-002 has been simplified to ensure that requirements regarding working environment is fulfilled in projects. S-002 is the most cited standard in the petroleum regulations. The standard was first issued in Norwegian and now we have published an English version.
This standard is developed to ensure that the facility layout can provide a safe working environment during operation. All parties involved in facility design and operation will thus find this document useful.
The standard is written for design of new build installations. It can be used for modification of existing drilling facilities, production facilities, use of and pipeline transportation of petroleum including living quarters for these activities.
The 2018 edition of S-002 refer to the latest updates within relevant national and international standards. Account has been taken of good practices and user experience reported by the oil and gas industry since the previous edition.
This edition of S-002 also includes the requirements set out in NORSOK S-005 edition 1, and NORSOK S-005 is withdrawn. The informative section of S-005 is presented in Annex B – Equipment packages and machinery.
