1 Scope

1.1 This specification defines the grades of carbon steel plates, rolled shapes, and
tubulars that must be used for the design and construction of a fixed offshore
platform in accordance with API RP 2A-WSD. It gives additional minimum
requirements for the manufacture and supply of this material. It also gives
acceptable substitute materials. Substitute material must still meet the additional
requirements given in this specification.

1.2 Additional requirements may be contained in Scopes of Work, Drawings, or


other Instructions or Specifications pertaining to specific items of work.

1.3 This standard may be attached to and made a part of purchase orders.

2 Conflicts and Deviations

2.1 Any conflicts between this specification and other applicable Saudi Aramco
Materials System Specifications (SAMSSs), Engineering Standards (SAESs),
Standard Drawings (SASDs), or industry standards, codes, and forms shall be
resolved in writing by the company or buyer representative through the
Manager, Consulting Services Department of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran.

2.2 Direct all requests to deviate from this specification in writing to the company or
buyer representative, who shall follow internal company procedure SAEP-302
and forward such requests to the Manager, Consulting Services Department of
Saudi Aramco, Dhahran.

2.3 Whenever material requirements are specified, the Vendor may propose, in his
bid, equivalent materials with technical proof that the proposed alternative
material specifications fully meet the technical and environmental requirements,
for consideration by the Buyer.

thickness properties
PL4 - General service plates
SH2 - Primary service rolled shapes with improved (but not tested)
through-thickness properties
