1.2 All welding shall conform to the requirements stated herein, applicable COMPANY
welding specification and any design or fabrication code requirements, as further
defined in relevant DP welding specification and/or Bid Document.

1.3 This specification is intended to complement and be used in conjunction with

2.6 All welding shall be done only by welders or welding operators who have been fully
qualified in accordance with the applicable DP specification and design or
fabrication code requirements.

2.7 CONTRACTOR shall ensure that all welding activities are supervised by an
adequate number of qualified supervisors as required to produce the quality of
work mandated in COMPANY specifications. If the level of supervision is deemed
inadequate, COMPANY shall so notify the CONTRACTOR in writing and

additional cost to the COMPANY.


3.0 WELD PROCEDURE SPECIFICATIONS & PROCEDURE QUALIFICATION RECORDS

3.1 Weld Procedure Specifications (WPS) and Procedure Qualification Records (PQR)
shall be qualified in accordance with the latest revision of the applicable DP
welding specification(s). AWS pre-qualified welding procedures are not acceptable.

3.2 DP previously qualified WPS and PQR's will be accepted provided they have been
qualified under the current DP welding specification(s). The only exception to this
is pipeline and pipeline riser welding which shall be qualified on each and every
project. Previously qualified DP or other pre-qualified welding procedures will not
be acceptable for pipelines or pipeline riser welding qualification.

3.3 All welders and welding operators shall be qualified by testing prior to any
production welding unless the welder or welding operator qualifications are:
current, meets the requirements of the applicable COMPANY welding specification
and have previously been approved by DP.

3.4 A COMPANY inspector shall witness all welder and/or welding operator testing.

3.5 All costs associated with WPS, PQR, or welder qualification shall be the sole cost
of the CONTRACTOR and shall be included in the lump sum price. No additional
cost for welding/welder qualification will be paid by the COMPANY.

3.6 Any weld procedure which, for whatever reason, produces welds with a frequency
of defects greater than 1O percent, on a per weld basis for COMPANY UT and RT
examined welds shall, at the discretion of the COMPANY, be withdrawn from
production and re-qualified. No welding shall take place under this procedure until
re-qualification is complete. All costs associated with re-qualification shall be borne
by the CONTRACTOR.

4.1 Pre-fabrication

Mill test reports on material, CONTRACTOR's quality control and related
procedures, welding procedures to be used, COMPANY approved welders or
operators to be used, NDE procedures, stress relieving procedure and
hydrostatic/pneumatic test procedures shall all be submitted prior to the start of
fabrication.

4.2 Post-fabrication

NDE reports and drawings, stress relieving records, records of hydrostatic/
pneumatic tests, etc. shall be bound and submitted to COMPANY as a complete
quality assurance job data book.

4.3 Storage

The CONTRACTOR shall store one set of the above reports and records with

unacceptable. Necessary repairs shall be made by the CONTRACTOR with no
