American Petroleum Institute, First Edition, February This document provides recommended practices for the design, operation, optimization, and troubleshooting of dual gas-lift wells.

In the process of making editorial revisions, it became obvious that some ep2a revisions were also needed.

The objective of this publication is to provide a purchase specification to facilitate the procurement and manufacture of reciprocating compressors for 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.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Peer reviewed only Published between: Derive load and resistance factors that provide a level of safety close to current practice WSD 12th edition for each component design check.


The purpose of 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. These analyses performed in the s guided updates to API.

For the purposes of this requirement, the chord capacity shall be determined using Equation 7. LRFD in later editions of this AISC specification are based on calibration with building design practices and may not be applicable to offshore platforms.

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. Platforms built prior to this were designed to a wide variety of criteria and fabrication techniques. The 21st edition was issued in DecemberSupplement 1 in DecemberSupplement 2 in Septemberand Supplement 3 in October Coexistence of Fixed Broadband Wireless Access Systems This recommended practice provides recommendations for the design and coordinated deployment of fixed broadband wireless access systems in order to Figure 1 shows the evolution of offshore platform design in the Gulf of Mexico that has been based upon a combination of events such as hurricanes, development of standards such as API, and advances in industry practices.

This RP also include 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.


Do we need to recalibrate? Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Background The design process has matured since platforms were first installed in the late ‘s.

Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: A complete and thorough review of the document was long overdue. Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Emphasis is placed on participation of all engineering disciplines during each stage of planning, development, design, con Moses Work for the GOM.

Generally, API standards are reviewed and revised, reaffirmed, or withdrawn at least every five years.

Hamonization in safety levels requires location-dependent partial action factors. It contains provisions for the application of cathodic protecti Platforms installed since the early ‘s provide a more robust design and incorporate many of the lessons learned during the design, pai and operation of earlier platforms.

This recommended practice RP provides guidance to the API authorized inspector on welding inspection as encountered with fabrication and repair of refinery and wsr plant equipment and piping. Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology:
