|Publication Date:||1 June 2019|
This guide covers the appropriate selection and procedures for electrical cables and cable systems installed in Hazardous (Classified) Locations on oil and gas land drilling rigs.
This guide will address gaps in the selection, performance, and installation of cables and cable systems for Hazardous (Classified) locations on oil and gas land drilling rigs not adequately addressed in present standards, recommended practices, and guides. The key drivers are flexibility, portability, allowance for innovation, and expanded use of cables and systems utilized in other industries.
