That's an impressive string of undefined abbreviations. Well done.

That's an ineffective tactic to weed out repliers who wouldn't know the answer, anyway.

What's more, the thread is in the Quality Assurance/Control section too.

A WPS stands for Weld Procedures Specifications.

You have one for plate butt welding, you'll have to append (add) the procedures to pipe fillet welding.

If you have a WPS, your welders must also (Should be) be certified. 6G

A WPS is a Weld Process Specification. It is Materiel Specific and Weld Process Specific.

WPS can also mean weld procedure specification so the "off topic" above is misguided.

3G refers to vertical vee butt weld on plate so it does not qualify for a pipe weld .

the pipe weld could be 1G , 2G , 5G or 6G .

SMAW (submerged arc weld) or any other process is irrelevant . The WPS has to be written and defined for the material ,process and position by a qualified person in the OP's country.

short answer " no "

Sorry SMAW in that context should be equivalent to MMAW (stick electrode) LOL

subarc weld should be SAW in the USA

I doubt it very highly. Butt weld and fillet weld differ in configuration and preparation.
