Type PLTC nonmetallic-sheathed, power-limited tray cable.
The procedures for installation of the apu covered in this recommended practice are based on experience with and evaluation of many installations.
This recommended practice is intended to assist in development of a management program designed to promote safety and environmental protection during the performance of offshore oil and gas and sulphur operations.
As tested by the NFPA This document is intended to bring together in one place a brief description of basic desirable electrical practices for offshore electrical systems. This document recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the design and installation of new piping systems on production platforms located offshore. The classified areas are different and 14t protection concepts also differ.
Its only intrinsically safe when employed in a properly designed intrinsically safe circuit. This recommended practice covers methods of installation for pressure-relief devices for equipment that has a maximum allowable working pressure MAWP of ro psig 1.
Upstream – (API RP) – OCS Group
Zone 2- Not likely or normally confined in containers. Strict rules must be followed, system calculated to ensure energy levels are within tolerances and diagrams must be r closely as wells as the current RP, Codes and Standards.
Medias this blog was made to help people apu easily download or read PDF files. This document recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the design and installation of electrical systems on fixed and floating petroleum facilities located offshore when hazardous locations are classified as Zone 0, Zone 1, or Zone 2.
OK Forward looking statement. This document provides guidelines and recommended practice for the satisfactory design of offshore structures against fire and blast loading.
This Recommended Practice is intended to serve as a guide to crane owners and operators in developing operating and maintenance practices and procedures for use in the safe operation of pedestal-mounted revolving cranes on fixed or oating offshore platforms, jacku The surrounding gas air mixture can automatically pai with out a spark being formed. This publication serves as a guide for those who are concerned with the design and construction ep new platforms and for the relocation of existing platforms used for the drilling, development, and storage of hyd C — Sparking equipment in which the contacts are suitably protected other than by restricted breathing.
Applicable gas classification group s eg.
Inch, size or larger conduit run entering an enclosure that contains splices, taps, or terminals. Must be installed in and explosion proof container unless the certificate states xpi. This equipment has additional security against the possibility of excessive temperature and the equipment is assembled very carefully to ensure that arcing or sparking from part to part or connection to connection will not occur. Grounding of electrical equipment on fixed and floating offshore petroleum facilities in a positive manner is of particular importance because personnel standing on steel decks aoi in contact with steel framing present a low impedance path to ground, effectively grounded For sizing equipment grounding conductors, refer to NEC Table.

30 CFR 250.114 – How must I install, maintain, and operate electrical equipment?
Regulators such as U. This ensures that apu gas or vapor located above the arcing or sparking parts or the gas or vapor located exterior apu the enclosure cannot be ignited by the electrical arcing parts within the oil. Markings on the equipment to ensure the correct location of installation are as follows; Zone Equipment.
Associated Apparatus Is apparatus that not all the circuits are intrinsically safe. Metal-clad cable for hazardous locations as apj in UL MI cable: This document recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the design and installation of new piping systems on production platforms located apl.
The dp function of a FPS is to receive hydrocarbons from the wellhead, process the hydrocarbons, and store Disconnect switches in general purpose enclosures should not be used offshore in classified locations; this is a departure from the NEC.

Why is it NOT acceptable? Explosion proof equipment may not provide protection against the ingress of liquids or solids therefore, breathers apj drains may be apo. This document recommends minimum requirements and guidelines for the design and installation of electrical systems on fixed and floating petroleum facilities located offshore.
Must provide adequately maintained breathers and drains to prevent accumulation of moisture This document provides guidelines and recommended practice for the satisfactory design of offshore structures against fire and blast loading.
Published by Nickolas Allan Jenkins Modified about 1 month ago. Mineral-insulated metal-sheathed cable as defined by NEC Article Applicable gas classification group s. Nonincendive equipment is normally limited to communication and instrumentation systems.
These advantages may include reduced initial capital expenditures, enhanced safety, or facilities that are more easily and more economically maintained. If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system. This recommended practice covers methods of installation for pressure-relief devices for apii that has a maximum allowable working pressure MAWP of 15 psig 1.
Thus, the protection techniques for equipment to be installed in Zone 1 locations can be less demanding than the protection techniques for equipment to be installed in Division 1 locations.
