Re: WPS
Dear Du Xuan Binh

Is your English good enough to read the Codes (it certainly seems quite good from your post) or is there a Vietnamese translation of the Codes? From your profile you work for BP they must have a good technical library.

Access the quoted code and read it - in the long run it will serve you better than being given answers from sources you have no knowledge of. This is an NDT forum, members cannot be expected to have sound knowledge of Code welding rules. AWS has a website with a technical forum or you can try Eng Tips.

Re: WPS
A333 Gr.6 material is different from API 5L X60 material.At any temperature it will not be qualified to each other.

I believe this has already been posted on the AWS forum and answered.
I believe this was the answer you got:

A333, Gr 6 is P1, Gr. 1, and API 5L X60 is P1, Gr. 2.

Since you mention CVN's the answer is "no" A333, Gr. 6 does not qualify API 5L, X60, see QW-403.5; supplementary essential variable.
