API 14H Task Group Status Proper Classification of Document Review for Clarity and Intent Validity of Current 14H Acceptance Criteria Independent Closing Testing Requirements Valve Repair Onsite vs. Offsite Field Failure Reporting Process and Documentation Requirements David Comeaux (Chair) , GE O&G Austin Freeman, Halliburton Sterling Lewis, ExxonMobil Mike Moy, Shell Mahesh Udipi, GE O&G Shane Siebenaler, SwRI Henry Wong, FMC Darine Aghnim, Lamons Jim Brinkley, Cactus Wellhead David Pang , Foster Wheeler Sergio Meyberg, GE O&G 14H Status - 6/14/2012
Timeline • Several working meetings since May 2011: • 8/11/11, 10/27/11, 12/07/11, • 01/19/12, 3/8/12, 4/6/12, and • 5/17/12 • Complete Committee Draft of API 14H • Send out for comments – July 2012 • Out for Ballot • October 2012 14H Status - 6/14/2012
Proposed Significant Changes Classification of Document • 14H has significant safety implications to critical processes. Task-group decided to review/re-write of 14H under the presumption that the document would qualify to be re-classified as a standard, with language to match. • Most clauses modified to read as requirements instead of guidance, for example: • Clause 5: “Replacement Parts should be qualified parts…” “Replacement parts shall meet or exceed OPD (Original Product Definition) requirements…” • Clause 8: Repair documentation “shall be maintained for the possession period of the equipment while it is in service as an SSV/USV. Documentation shall accompany the equipment during transfer of ownership.” Review for Clarity and Intent • Streamlining of Scope clause • Added Normative References Section • Alignment of terminology with 6A: • Example: Onsite repair Field repair 14H Status - 6/14/2012
Proposed Significant Changes Proper Classification of Document (Testing, Clause 7) • Operation and Pressure Holding tests consolidated into a single procedure. • Test procedures for SSV and USV were consolidated into a single procedure. • Specified a total of 3 cycles comprising the operation test (not specified previously). • Changed requirement for duration of pressure-holding period to be a minimum of 3 minutes. • Test modified to allow operators to use alternate equipment/methods having the required precision to measure leakage across the SSV/USV. • Added explicit requirement for zero leakage on pressure-containing components. • Pressure Build-up Methodology, Annex A, reviewed and enhanced. Annex now has the following structure: • A.1 Flow Diagram • A.2 Nomenclature • A.3 Assumptions • A.4 Procedure • A.5 Example 14H Status - 6/14/2012
Proposed Significant Changes • Failure Reporting • No longer a “User Recommendation” • Documentation Requirements • Exhibits 1 through 3 incorporated into main body under clauses 8 and 9, using tables. • Table 9.1 (was Exhibit 1): Failure Report for Surface Safety Valves (SSVs) and Underwater Safety Valves (USVs) • Table 9.2 (was Exhibit 2): SSV/USV Repair Record Sheet • Table 9.3 (was Exhibit 3): SSV/USV Functional Test Data Sheet For Onsite Repairs • Offsite repairs (and Exhibit 4) were eliminated from scope of 14H 14H Status - 6/14/2012
