This specification package was prepared under a Joint Industry Project 33 (JIP33) “Standardization of Equipment Specifications for Procurement” organized by the International Oil & Gas Producers Association (IOGP) with the support from the World Economic Forum (WEF). Ten key oil and gas companies from the IOGP membership participated in developing this specification under JIP33 Phase 2 with the objective to leverage and improve industry level standardization for projects globally in the oil and gas sector.
The work has developed a minimized set of supplementary requirements for procurement, with life cycle cost in mind, based on the ten participating members’ company specifications, resulting in a common and jointly approved specification, and building on recognized industry and/or international standards. The specification package has been developed in consultation with a broad user and supplier base to promote the opportunity to realize benefits from standardization and achieve significant cost reductions for upstream project costs.
This specification is a collection of material data sheets (MDSs) and element data sheets (EDSs) for the most commonly used components for piping systems and valves for Normal or Category D fluid service as defined in ASME B31.3.
