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. The table below shows maximum UCs for two water depths.

These analyses performed in the s guided updates to API. Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Design requirements for fixed offshore platforms by Chevron. In the process of making editorial revisions, it became obvious that some technical revisions were also needed.

Hamonization in safety levels requires location-dependent partial action factors. 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.

Help Center Find new research papers in: A complete and thorough review of the document was long overdue. Emphasis is placed on participation of all engineering disciplines during each stage of planning, development, design, con American Petroleum Institute, Errata And Supplement 3, October This publication 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.

The objective of this publication is to provide a purchase specification to facilitate the procurement and manufacture of reciprocating compressors for Compared to single completions, dual completions have a higher initial cost, have more operating problems, are more difficul Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Skip to main content.


LRFD in later editions of this AISC specification are based on calibration with building design practices and may not be applicable to offshore platforms.

The purpose of this recommended practice is to present r2a and practices for achieving effective corrosion control on aboveground storage tank bottoms through the use of cathodic protection.

American Petroleum Institute, Third Edition, July This asd practice is a guide to the designer in organizing an efficient approach to the design of a tension leg platform TLP.

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.

Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. 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. About us Contact us Help Terms of use. Updates, New Suite of Standards: Moses Work for the GOM. It includes a description of the various types of pressure vessels including pressure vessels with a design pressure below 15 psig and the standards for their construction and maintenance.

Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Generally, API standards are reviewed and revised, reaffirmed, or withdrawn swd least every five years. Do we need to revisit these analyses and reassess target reliabilities? Do we need to recalibrate? Has this evolution changed the rl2a of the load and resistance factors developed by Moses et al in the s?

Background The design process has matured r;2a platforms were first installed in the late ‘s.

Wave conditions for which the simplified approach was calibrated are no longer in 2MET. The project will start in early and last for two years. American Petroleum Institute, First Edition, February This document provides recommended practices for the design, operation, optimization, and troubleshooting of dual gas-lift wells. Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. It contains provisions for the application of cathodic protecti
