Post Merger Overlapping, Non overlapping Standards, & Project Specs Single Standards (CES) Why Deploy Enterprise Wide across Chevron:

Global Technology Improvement LL & BP i implementation l t ti across multiple lti l projects/facilities j t /f iliti Reduce Project Risks Consistency of designs with large amount of hiring/onboarding New Employee shortened time to productivity

CES Benefits:

Commented Specifications

Shear area values for Charpy impact testing shall be in accordance with API 5L SR5A. Shear area requirements need not be met on the weld seam. Comment: Shear requirements q on the Charpy py specimen p for gas pipeline service are important to provide fracture initiation resistance. Meeting the shear requirement will mean that the test temperature is above the ductile-to brittle transition temperature.

CES Manual Organization

Organized around major technologies, each having an assigned Subject Matter Expert Sponsor responsible for their technology area. Manual Sponsors are also leaders and contributors in their functional communities S Sponsors are responsible ibl for f ensuring i the th information i f ti in i their Manual is current and accurate. S Sponsors are key k in i planning l i & prioritizing i ii i CES annual l work k scope Sponsors have final review & signoff of manual documents before they are published
