SAWE RP O-3 Generic Weighing Procedure for Assemblies and Modules in the Offshore Oil Industry has been published.

Weight Control of offshore installations is critical to ensure that any Assembly, Module or Topsides may be installed using the proposed method, with minimum hook-up, and that the overall design caters for the most severe operating criteria identified.  RP O-3 establishes the requirements for weighing Assemblies, Modules or a complete Topsides facility.  It presents methods for preparation before a weighing and reporting results after a weighing has been completed and establishes methods employed to determine the center of gravity from a weighing process.

I’d like to thank the Offshore committee for the hard work in getting this document ready for publishing.  A special thanks goes out to Dave Bennett for providing his leadership for this document with respect to being a major author and editor during the development process
