  1. API Report API-AGA Joint Committee2010 API ECS Winter ConferenceNew Orleans, LA Ed Baniak Senior Standards AssociateWashington, DC January 28, 2010

  2. API Standards Development Process • API is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) • Regular API Standards program audits (conducted by ANSI) • Open and transparent process (anyone can comment on any document) • All comments and objections must be considered

  3. Standards Development Process • Developed by consensus (does not mean unanimity) • Committee balance between users, manufacturers and contractors/consultants • Standards developed using ANSI approved API Standards Development Procedures (available on-line at • API corporate membership is not a requirement for participation on API standardization committees

  4. Standards Development Process • Standards group has oversight for ensuring conformance with the applicable procedures, facilitating meetings, and assisting in resolution of comments/conflicts • Open Process - Seek representation from all interest groups: member companies, other trade organizations, government, consultants, etc.

  5. API Also Provides Support to the International Standards Community • API is involved in international standardization via ANSI • Secretariat for two main industry committees, TC 28 and TC 67 • Secretariat for US Technical Advisory Groups for both Technical Committees

  6. API Standards Committee Operations • API Standards Committees usually meet twice a year: • Oversight Committees (ECS, COPM, CRE) meet to monitor work program • Subgroups (task forces, resource groups) meet as needed to progress work, often in conference calls or web meetings • All standards balloting is done via the web API-AGA Joint Committee usually meets once a year: • 8 Subcommittees meet at the plenary meeting and additional meetings as needed • Ballots handled through the web site

  8. Other Related API Documents 2009 • Recommended Practice 5L1, Recommended Practice for Railroad Transportation of Line Pipe, 7th Edition • Recommended Practice 5LW, Recommended Practice for Transportation of Line Pipe on Barges and Marine Vessels, 1st Edition • Specification 5LD, Specification for CRA Clad or Lined Steel Pipe, 3rd Edition • Recommended Practice 5A3/ISO 13678, Recommended Practice on Thread Compounds for Casing, Tubing, LIne Pipe, and Drill Stem Elements, 3rd Edition • Specification 5DP/ISO 11961, Specification for Drill Pipe, 3rd Edition

  9. 2010 Primary Voting Year for 1104 • In 2009, reported that the document is approaching the limit of its 5-year review cycle • Committee was informed to begin the review/update process • During 2009, collecting suggestions for review • Several INGAA workshops addressing document concerns

  10. Subcommittee Work Groups • Work on proposed changes – Ongoing • Solicit input from all interested parties (other organizations, DOT-PHMSA, colleagues, etc. • Subcommittee should review their sections internally and agree on changes. • Subcommittee chairs should submit the final changes document to API for ballot • Balloting process: • One fully revised document • Individual sections • Subcommittee chairs coordinate the resolution of comments after ballot

Standards Development Timeline • Formation of workgroup and definition of scope • Work on document (complete by April 15) • Required Ballot for Consensus (complete by June 1) • Comment Resolution from Ballot (2-? weeks) • Subcommittees meet during the summer standards conference to resolve comments • Second ballot(s) based on Technical Comments (3 weeks) • Typesetting and initial proof (4 weeks) • Publication by December 2010 • Start Over Again in 5 Years
