Instrumentation Standards

The following NORSOK standards are available in pdf form at no charge - you do have to register but the process is very simple.

I-001 - Field Instrumentation - This standard identifies the requirements to field instrumentation design.

I-106 Fiscal Metering Systems for Hydrocarbon Liquid and Gas - This NORSOK standard describes the functional and technical requirements for fiscal measurement systems for gas and liquid hydrocarbons based on dynamic methods. It also provides criteria for selection of systems and their main components. 

I-005 System Control Diagram - This
NORSOK standard is intended to cover functional as well as drawing related requirements for use of System Control Diagrams.

Safety Instrumentation Standards

I-002 Safety and Automation Systems (SAS) - This NORSOK standard covers functional and technical requirements and establishes a basis for engineering related to Safety and Automation System Design;

S-001Technical Safety - This NORSOK standard describes the principles and requirements for the development of the safety design of offshore installations for production of oil and gas. Where applicable, this NORSOK standard may also be used for mobile offshore drilling units.This standard, together with ISO 13702, also defines the required standard for implementation of technologies and emergency preparedness to establish and maintain an adequate level of safety for personnel, environment and material assets.

DNV-OS-D202 - Automation, Safety, and Telecommunication Systems - The objectives of this standard are to:
-  Provide an internationally acceptable standard for general requirements to safety, automation, and telecommunication systems by defining minimum requirements for design, materials, fabrication, installation, testing, commissioning, operation, maintenance, re-qualification, and abandonment. 
- Serve as a technical reference document in contractual matters between purchasers and contractors.
-Serve as a guideline for designers, purchasers and contractors.

Electrical Standards

DNV-OS-D201 - Electrical Installations - This offshore standard provides principles, technical requirements and guidance for design, manufacturing and installation of electrical installations on mobile offshore units and floating offshore installations. The objectives of this standard are to;
- Provide an internationally acceptable standard of safety by defining minimum requirements for offshore electrical installations.
- Serve as a contractual reference document between suppliers and purchasers.
- Serve as a guideline for designers, suppliers, purchasers and regulators.
- Specify procedures and requirements for offshore units or installations subject to DNV Certification and Classification.

Fire & Gas Standards

DNV-OS-D301 - Fire Protection - This offshore standard provides principles for design, construction and installation of fire protection of offshore units and installations. This standard is applicable to drilling, storage, production, accommodation and other types of offshore units and installations. The objectives of this standard are to  provide an internationally acceptable standard of safety for fire protection by defining minimum requirements forthe design, construction and commissioning of such systems.

Oil and Gas Standards

Catalogue of International Standards Used in the Oil & Gas Industry - The purpose in collecting and maintaining this information is to provide an International Standards catalogue for the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industry. The objective of this document is to provide a tool for making potential users aware of International Standards available to them. By this means it is anticipated that more such standards would be used in place of regional, national, or company / project specific standards. As a result, the costs associated with the procurement of oil and gas industry materials, equipment, and structures will be reduced, and greater efficiency will be realised in the use of resources that would otherwise be required to develop and maintain local standards and specifications - from OGP.

Safety Standards

DNV-OS-A101 - Safety Principles and Arrangement - This standard provides general safety and arrangement principles for offshore units and installations. The standard is applicable to overall safety and integrity aspects of all types of floating offshore units and fixed installations. The standard has been developed for general world-wide application. Governmental legislation may include requirements in excess of the provisions of this standard depending on type, location and intended service of the unit or installation. The objectives of the standard are to;
- Provide an internationally acceptable standard of safety for offshore units and installations by defining
requirements for design loads, arrangements, area classification, shut down logic, alarms and escape or communication.
- Serve as a contractual reference document between suppliers and purchasers.
- Serve as a guideline for designers, suppliers, purchasers and regulators.
- Specify procedures and requirements for units or installations subject to DNV certification and classification services.

International Standards

Instrument & Automation Standards for the International Oil & Gas Industry - This is a comprehensive list of  Instrument & Automation International Standards - this copyrighted document is from OGP.

ISA Standards - This collection contains documents from the following standards organization(s): International Society of Automation

ISO 13702 - Control & Mitigation of Fires & Explosions - Offshore. production installations-Requirements and Guidelines. 

ISO 15544 - Offshore Production Installations - Requirements and Guidelines for Emergency Response.

ISO 17776 - Offshore Product Installations-Guidelines on Tools and Techniques for Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment.

Subsea Control Systems Standards

ISO 13628 - Design and Operation of Subsea Production Systems - Part 6: Subsea Production Control Systems.

DNV-RP-F302 - Selection and use of Subsea Leak Detection Systems - Production systems for hydrocarbons are complex installations and it is known in the industry that smaller and larger unwanted leakages occur and cause discharge of hydrocarbons to the surroundings. Today, both operators and authority awareness towards the environmental impact of oil and gas production is constantly increasing. In spite of the fact that methods for subsea leak detection have been available in the market for years, there are still gaps to fill concerning the design, engineering and operation of such methods to make them reliable for detection of discharge to the environment. Thus, there is a need for an industry reference in this technology field which can serve as a guideline today and a tool for coordinating the development of the field in the future. This Recommended Practice (RP) summarizes current industry experiences and knowledge with relevance to selection and use of detectors for a subsea leak detection system. It covers relevant regulations, field experience and available technologies and also gives guidance on how to design and operate a system for subsea leak detection and recommendations for developments needed in this field of technology.

DNV-RP-F401 - Electrical Power Cables in Subsea Application

Protective Coating Standards

M-501Surface Preparation and Protective Coating - This NORSOK standard gives the requirements for the selection of coating materials, surface preparation, application procedures and inspection for protective coatings to be applied during the construction and installation of offshore installations and associated facilities. It covers paints, metallic coatings and application of spray-on passive fire protective coatings.The aim of this NORSOK standard is to obtain a coating system, which ensures optimal protection of the installation with a minimum need for maintenance, that the coating system is maintenance friendly, that the coating system is application friendly,that health, safety and environmental impacts are evaluated and documented.
