The first phase of a joint industry project to promote a global standard for engineering and construction of offshore oil and gas installations has delivered four recommended practices (RPs).

The RPs provide guidance for meeting requirements in multiple recognized standards applied globally. The RPs also provide guidance and propose new standards in areas where no standards exist. They aim to reduce variations and unique requirements for every project and thereby to reduce the general cost level and delays in offshore oil and gas projects. 

DNV GL is now undertaking a hearing round for the RPs, working closely with oil companies, engineering houses and fabricators to develop the RPs further for global application.

The RPs are:

  • DNVGL-RP-E401 Recommendation for selecting standards for piping components  

  • DNVGL-RP-E402 Recommendation for selecting standards for electrical and instrumentation component

  • DNVGL-RP-B201 Recommendation for selecting standards for structural steel materials

  • DNVGL-RP-E403 Recommendation for selecting standards for steel bulk items.
