Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. The TG met seven times between October and December with some delay caused by the aftermath of hurricane Ike in American Petroleum Institute, First Edition, February Pai 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 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 wds piping.

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 Help Center Find new research papers in: Emphasis is placed on participation of all engineering disciplines during each stage of planning, development, design, con Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link.


Moses Work for the GOM. Peer reviewed only Published between: Updates, New Suite of Standards: The RP provides guidance so that: Skip to main content. Generally, API standards are reviewed and revised, reaffirmed, or withdrawn at least every five years.

These analyses performed in the s guided updates to API. This new interaction equation provides a better fit to the available test data than does the arc sine expression in the 21st edition.

The 21st edition was issued in DecemberSupplement 1 in DecemberApu 2 in Septemberand Supplement 3 in October All new and reused structures are now required to have a detailed fatigue analysis. Wave conditions for which the simplified approach was calibrated are no longer in 2MET.

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

Hamonization in safety levels requires location-dependent partial action factors. Remember me on this computer. Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: 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. It contains provisions for the application of cathodic protecti Log in to your subscription Username.


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

Design requirements for fixed offshore platforms by Chevron | Naoufel Riahi –

Three sections were removed i. 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.

The objective of this publication is to provide a purchase specification to facilitate the procurement and manufacture of reciprocating compressors for A complete and thorough review of the document was long overdue. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Wd the purposes of this requirement, the chord capacity shall be determined using Equation 7. Platforms built prior to this were designed to a wide variety of criteria and fabrication techniques.

About us Contact us Help Terms of use. Platforms installed since the early ‘s provide a more robust design and incorporate many of the lessons learned during the design, wad and operation of earlier platforms.

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.
