requirements in this field.

This Standard (Rev. 2) has been approved by the Standards Team in consultation with the
Standard Technical Committee (STC) for use throughout the Engineering and Operational
Functions of Kuwait Oil Company (K.S.C.). This KOC Standard “KOC-MP-005” supersedes
and replaces the KOC Specification No.: 015-IH-1006, which has been withdrawn.

This Standard sets out to achieve the following objectives:

a) To provide technical guidance and establish base document for developing project
specification for the design of pig trap systems with a view to achieve uniformity,
quality, reliability and efficiency in an economical manner.

b) To set out minimum features required, a Data Sheet has been included in
Appendix 1, which will act as a checklist to ensure that all the requirements for
design and construction are addressed.

c) To maintain the KOC requirements of safety and protection to plant, personnel and

4.0 TERMINOLOGY І2І

4.1 Definitions

4.1.1 Use of Language

Throughout this documents, the words "shall", "should" "may", and "can", when
used in the context of action by KOC and / or by others, have specific meanings
as follows:

“Shall” indicates a requirement: It is used to indicate requirements strictly to


be followed in order to conform to the document and from which no deviation is
permitted.

“Should” indicates a recommendation: It is used to indicate that among


several possibilities one is recommended as particularly suitable, without
mentioning or excluding others, or that a certain course of action is preferred
but not necessarily required, or that (in the negative form, 'should not') a certain
possibility or course of action is deprecated but not prohibited.

“May” indicates permission: It is used to indicate a course of action


permissible within the limits of the document.

“Can” indicates possibility and capability: It is used for statements of


possibility and capability, whether material, physical or casual.
