DNV Updates Standard for Offshore Service Modules

Monday, June 10, 2013

DNV said it has completely rewritten the standard for Offshore Service Modules certification, commonly referred to as DNV 2.7-2, which was first published in 1995. The new document is now available and an event to explain the guidance will be held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Center (AECC) on June 11, 2013.

According to DNV, there are currently various industry sources of guidance and standards, some of which contain conflicting advice, making it difficult for users to gain assurance that their equipment is compliant and that as Duty Holders, they are effectively managing the hazards that may be introduced to the offshore installation. DNV believe that the new DNV 2.7-2 offers a solution to this issue.

Jack Downie, Head of Section, Verification and Product Certification in Aberdeen commented, “As of January 1, 2013, Aberdeen became the DNV global center for Offshore Containers, we are therefore, very close to the needs of the customer here. It is also fitting that we are developing the service and launching updates to the customers ‘in our own backyard.’ Indeed, selected clients have had an opportunity to comment on the changes to DNV 2.7-2 in the interim stages, so they have been very much a part of the revision.”

Though widely recognized as a safety standard for pressurized modules for temporary workspaces, it has now been extended to cover all types of temporary equipment, from diesel engines and compressors to well test production equipment.

The basis for every DNV 2.7-2 module is a container or skid, which, for example, may be precertified to DNV 2.7-2, and then outfitted according to the end client specification. DNV will now certify this to ensure the safety related aspects both from hazards inherent within the module, and also from risks due to its location on the offshore installation. It is a single document which brings together the key safety requirements of multiple existing standards to enable users to effectively apply it to transportable/temporary equipment.
