The handbook is a unique source for RAMS analysis in the petroleum industry world wide. The topside and subsea handbooks are both divided into two parts. Part I describes the OREDA project www.oreda.com, different data collection phases and the estimation procedures used to generate the generic reliability data tables presented in Part II of the handbook. The source data for these books are stored in a computer database available for the companies participating in the OREDA project only. The handbook is marketed by DNV-GL: www.oreda.com/shop
SINTEF and NTNU have published a new edition of the OREDA handbook in 2015 for topside and subsea equipment.
