KNPC insists to do PWHT as per Contract Exhibit A Part II Sec
4 –
cl 4.4.3.2

“ All Pressure Containing equipment for sour service


application shall be subjected to 100% NDE & Post Weld Heat
Treatment “

Contractor Interpretation
There is NO PWHT REQUIRED for
-Feed up to first isolation valve From KNPC “A5” Piping
class
- Blow down piping to Flare header with Shell 11055 pipe
class.

-Low Severity -Sour Service category items

-Silencer shall be designed as a part of Compressor as per


API 619 Rotary-Type Positive- Displacement Compressors
for Petroleum, Petrochemical, and Natural Gas Industries
and Shell DEP 31.29.40.32-Gen No PWHT Requirements.

-MDT (Compressor Manufacturer) Recommendation and


previous experience (Silencers without PWHT) in similar
flare Gas services
