Modernisation of NORSOK standards for Piping and Lay-out
NORSOK L-003 Piping details and NORSOK L-001 Piping and valves was published in 2017 while NORSOK L-002 Piping system layout, design and structural analysis and NORSOK L-004 Piping fabrication, installation, flushing and testing was published in 2016. NORSOK L-005 is from 2013 and may be revised after the corresponding ISO standard has been updated.
With all these standards available, you will ensure that you are working according to best practices within piping and lay-out.
For all four revisions, focus has been on safe and simple design to keep costs as low as possible in the engineering phase. Companies have shared their knowledge and the revised NORSOK documents are published with concensus.
The content in these standards has been aligned and requirements are no only given in one document. They have also been aligned towards other standards in the NORSOK portfolio.
The electronic version of NORSOK L-001 gives access to additional documentation such as PED conformity assessment for the elements in the standard and guidelines for the o'let design.
