API - RP 17X

Recommended Practice for Subsea Pump Module Systems

active, Most Current
Organization: API
Publication Date: 1 October 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 80
scope:

This RP provides guidance for the design, manufacture, installation, and operation of subsea pumps, including rotary displacement and rotor dynamic types for single phase, and multi‑phase services. The RP applies to all subsea pump modules placed at or above the mud line.

API RP 17X describes subsea pump modules that are either directly designed or "marinized" for use in an offshore/marine environment. Potential applications include:

- Offshore use near subsea wells to boost production and enhance oil recovery (EOR) from partially depleted oil fields, or:

- To boost flowline pressures to flow at higher rates or greater distances or when flowing subsea wells up to a surface facility.

The design of such system solutions requires additional equipment to power, control and otherwise operate the pumps. These are not within the scope of this document and can be found in API Std 17F, API Std 17G, API 17Z, and other relevant standards for these and associated equipment on the host facility or site.
