American Petroleum Institute, Fifth Edition, June This Recommended Practice RP provides guidelines for pressure testing steel pipelines for the transportation of gas, petroleum gas, hazardous liquids, highly volatile liquids or carbon dioxide. Background The design process has matured since platforms were first installed in the late ‘s.

During the ‘s better application of design practices ensured higher engineering standards, until the first modern platforms began to be installed in the late ‘s using a consistent design recipe then available in RP 2A. The 21st edition was issued in DecemberSupplement 1 in DecemberSupplement 2 in Septemberand Supplement 3 in October Moses Work for the GOM. Hamonization in safety levels requires location-dependent partial action factors. Advanced search Show search help. The table below shows maximum UCs for two water depths.

Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. The objective of this publication is to provide a purchase specification to facilitate the procurement and manufacture of reciprocating compressors for Platforms installed since the early ‘s provide a more robust design and incorporate many of the lessons learned during the design, installation and operation of earlier platforms.


American Petroleum Institute, First Edition, February This document provides recommended practices for the design, operation, optimization, and troubleshooting of dual gas-lift wells. Compared to single completions, dual completions have a higher initial cost, have more operating problems, are more difficul American Petroleum Institute, Third Edition, July This recommended practice is a guide to the designer in organizing an efficient approach to the design of a tension leg platform TLP.

LRFD in later editions of this AISC specification are based on calibration with building design practices and may not be applicable to offshore platforms. It includes a description of the various types of pressure vessels including pressure vessels with a design pressure below 15 psig wpi the standards for their construction and maintenance.

Has this evolution changed the validity of the load and resistance factors developed by Moses et al in the s? Three sections ro2a removed i. A complete and thorough review of the document was long overdue.

The purpose rp2x this recommended practice is to present procedures and practices for achieving effective corrosion control on aboveground storage tank bottoms through the use of cathodic protection.

This new interaction equation provides a better fit to the available test data than does the arc sine expression in the 21st edition. The RP provides guidance so that: This RP also include Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Platforms built prior to this were designed to a wide variety of criteria and fabrication techniques.


It includes a description of the various types of pressure vessels including p It contains provisions for the application of cathodic protecti Remember me on this computer. This recommended practice RP provides guidance to the API authorized inspector on welding inspection as encountered with fabrication and repair of refinery and chemical plant equipment and piping. ap

American Petroleum Institute, Errata And Supplement 3, October This wdd serves as a guide for those who are concerned with the design and construction of new platforms and for the relocation of existing platforms used for the drilling, development, and storage of hydrocarbons in offshore areas.

Should partial action factors be revised to achieve the same performance levels? In addition, guidelines are provided for the assessment of existing platforms in the event that it becomes necessary to make a determination of the fitness for purpose of the structure.
