This offshore standard contains criteria, technical requirements and guidance on design, construction and commissioning of offshore hydrocarbon production plants and associated equipment. The standard also covers liquefaction of natural gas and regasification of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and also associated gas processing.
The standard is applicable to plants located on floating offshore units and on fixed offshore structures of various types. Offshore installations include fixed and floating terminals for export or import of LNG.
The requirements of Ch.2 Sec.1 relate primarily to oil and gas production activities. Ch.2 Sec.11 provides additional requirements to LNG terminals and should be read as a supplement to the other sections in Ch.2 Sec.1.
The standard has been written for general worldwide application. Governmental regulations may include requirements in excess of the provisions of this standard depending on the size, type, location and intended service of the offshore unit or installation.
