Standards Norway Telephone: Strandveien 18, P. Furthermore, NORSOK standards are, as far as possible, intended to replace oil company specifications and serve as references in the authorities regulations.

The NORSOK standards are normally based on recognised international standards, adding the provisions deemed necessary to fill the broad needs of the Norwegian petroleum industry. Annex A is normative. The standard may also be used for mobile installations for which, however, other requirements may be applicable.

Latest issue of the references shall be used unless otherwise agreed. Other recognized standards may be used provided it can be shown that they meet or exceed the requirements of the referenced standards. Other discipline requirements related to the LQ are covered in the respective NORSOK standards and shall be integrated with the architectural design development to achieve a co-ordinated and optimal solution for the LQ area.

The LQ area room programme shall be developed for the LQ area early in the concept phase, based on relevant field- and operational information. It shall be continuously updated throughout all project phases. The following information shall be available prior to the development of the LQ room programme: type of installation; personnel capacity; manning philosophy for all main operational phases; catering philosophy; CCR philosophy if applicable ; environmental data on location; design life; helicopter type s and operational philosophy; main evacuation philosophy; lifeboat capacity and number; workshop area requirements if applicable ; waste handling philosophy; housekeeping cleaning philosophy.

The room programme schedule in Annex A shall be used, where all relevant information shall be included. It shall be protected from hazardous areas by external walls and roofs, which are fire and blast resistant in accordance with results of risk and emergency preparedness analyses.

There shall be at least two exits to escape routes leading in different directions from each level in the LQ with at least one internal stairway linking all levels. All rooms exceeding 20 m 2 shall have a minimum of two escape ways mutually located at opposite sides of the room. Doors to this room category shall open outwards from the room.

This includes start-up, drilling, production, as well as periods of planned production shutdown for modifications and maintenance, etc.

In this respect, the operator shall perform necessary analyses in the conceptual phase, in order to verify the required manning level. The LQ shall be furnished and equipped for persons of both sexes, with separate rooms for women and men as needed Noise considerations The internal areas shall provide possibilities for work, recreation, relaxation, sleep and privacy.

Areas requiring quietness shall be particularly protected from noise and vibrations. Special attention shall be given to the location of the helideck relative to the LQ accommodation areas, with regard to potential noise from helicopters during take off, landing and hovering. Noisy and vibrating equipment and machinery shall not be located in close proximity to the LQ accommodation areas. The sound reduction properties of the whole LQ construction, including window and door assemblies, shall be evaluated during the engineering phase.

The objective shall be to ensure and verify that the maximum sound level inside the accommodation areas is in compliance with the specific requirements as stated in NORSOK S It shall be verified that the window and door assemblies tested including frames are identical to the actual assemblies planned to be installed. As a minimum, windows shall be provided in dining rooms, main recreation room s , work places that will be in use for more than 6 h per working day, and the majority of cabins.

In recreation areas, larger windows floor to ceiling shall be provided, if possible Selection of materials Selection of materials and detailing solutions shall ensure effective cleaning and maintenance.

In this case special attention shall be given to comfort, mechanical function and ease of bed linen change. All cabins shall have unobstructed access to a corridor leading to a minimum of two independent emergency exits. All technical installations, switches, sockets etc.

Technical penetrations in adjoining cabin walls shall be kept to a minimum to avoid weakening the noise insulation properties of the walls. A solid, flexible support bracket shall be provided for the TV. A full size model cabin shall be provided for one of the cabin types, complete with furniture, equipment, bathroom, service shaft and full width section of the adjacent corridor.

The model shall be suitable for function testing with respect to ventilation, light intensity, noise transmission, room acoustic, etc. The model shall be constructed at an early project stage with the use of real materials, so that design, detailing, elements, materials, colours etc. The project schedule and scope shall be suitably flexible to allow for adjustments to the model, ensuring it is always up to date and can be used as a reference for the cabins to be installed onboard.

Any leave lockers located in corridors shall be securely fixed and recessed in corridor walls. The front shall be mounted flush with the surrounding walls. A sufficient number of recreation rooms shall be provided to satisfy the employees needs for recreation, rest, social and physical activities.
