NORSOK Value

For decades, Parker has been providing leading edge elastomer technology to the energy, oil and gas industry. As a value added service, Parker is now offering EOG elastomers tested and certified to NORSOK standards.

NORSOK standards are developed by the Norwegian Petroleum Industry to outline and secure adequate safety and cost efficient needs for petroleum industry developments and operations. NORSOK M-710 calls out the requirements for critical rubber sealing materials in applications such as subsea use, control systems and valves. It provides standards for rapid gas decompression (RGD) also known as explosive decompression (ED) testing and sour gas (H2S) aging on elastomers and thermoplastics. These tests give insight to the performance and life expectancy of a seal in various EOG applications.

Parker enlisted MERL, Ltd., (Materials Engineering Research Laboratory), an independent research laboratory located in the United Kingdom, to conduct the stringent NORSOK tests on Parker’s various EOG materials. Parker’s materials were found to pass, if not exceed expectations and requirements set by NORSOK. See the charts below for Parker materials that received NORSOK approval.
