MATERIALS, FABRICATION AND INSPECTION REQUIREMENTS FOR OFFSHORE FIXED STRUCTURES

At the time of preparation of this paper, the final drafts of American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Rules for Offshore Fixed Installations, American Petroleum Institute (API) Recommended Practise (RP-2A) and U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) Regulations discussed herein were being processed through the governing bodies of the respective organizations. The above reflects the dynamic status of the subject. The information presented herein is intended to convey an understanding of the ABS Rules for Fixed Offshore Installations relative to Materials, Welding, and Nondestructive Testing and to indicate their relationship to related documents of other technical organizations, classification societies and regulatory bodies. While substantial changes in the ABS, API, and USGS specifications presented are unlikely, details presented herein should be checked with the latest edition of the specifications which are expected to be available from the organizations in early 1980.
