// Normative Standards

NIPIStroyTEK LLC is a standard setting authority active in developing regulations for the Energy sector construction:

  • Fuel and energy facilities operation optimization and harmonization standard setting  requirements, inter alia  main pipeline-related;
  • Regulatory technical and technological legal documentation on pipeline transport construction and repairs works;
  • Contractor addressed welding and assembly work requirements;
  • Pipeline construction setting  specific welding technology evaluation;
  • Development of optimal organization schemes welding and assembly work and completion of welding fluxes (welding columns).
