API-RPC, developed by the American Petroleum Institute exemplifies the effect of that influence on a procedure by which safety systems and controls on procedure by which safety systems and controls on offshore platforms are designed and installed. It should be noted that a process component is any section of a process that can be isolated and analyzed independently, including such components as compressors, pressure vessels, and heaters.
Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. In identifying a process component care should be taken to make sure the device is properly described.
In recent years government regulations have exerted an increasing influence on the techniques of engineering analysis and design, which has produced such documents as API-RPC.
Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. For an example of this number’s application, consider two relief valves on one production separator.
Impact Of API 14C On The Design And Construction Of Offshore Facilities – OnePetro
Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: The intent of this recommended practice is to give the industry a standard procedure for analyzing the safety requirements needed on an offshore production facility. This paper describes the proper procedures for using API-RPC and shows 14 it differs from today’s industry standards.
Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Advanced search Show search help. The standard is rather lengthy and detailed in its information and, if not used properly, can seem ambiguous and difficult to apply, the intent being to form a fail safe system which is overprotected rather than underprotected.
The mnemonic following the device number is the process component description, which can be found in Table 2. In process component with its proper mnemonic.

This paper also illustrates the most efficient ways to the best of the author’s knowledge to use API-RPC without compromising its purpose. Society of Petroleum Engineers Disciplines 4.
Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ The last four digits of this safety device identification uniquely 1c the process component, and are used at the designers’ discretion. Figure 1 The mnemonic following the device number is the process component description, which can be found in Table 2.
A typical device identification tag number performs two apu functions: In the example given, MBD stands for pressure vessel separator, and this tag would be used when describing a production separator.
Thus, a safety device identification code can not only identify the type of device, but also what process component it protects. Abstract In recent years government regulations have exerted an increasing influence on the techniques of engineering analysis and design, which has produced such documents as API-RPC.
