API - RP 17A
Design and Operation of Subsea Production Systems―General Requirements and Recommendations
|Publication Date:||1 May 2022|
API 17A provides general requirements and recommendations for the development and operation of subsea production/injection
A complete subsea production/injection
NOTE The term "subsea production system" is used generically throughout this document to describe both production and injection systems.
Flexible pipe standards form part of the API 17-series of documents (see 4.3.3); however, RP 17A does not generally cover flowlines/pipelines or production/injection
If requirements as stated in this document are in conflict with, or are inconsistent with, requirements as stated in other API 17-series documents, the specific requirements in the subsystem series document(s) take precedence.
