A American Petroleum Institute ( API) é uma associação americana que representa todos os aspectos da indústria de petróleo e gás natural da América .

A American Petroleum Institute teve o início de suas atividades no período da Primeira Guerra Mundial, quando o Congresso Nacional doas Estados Unidos e a indústria de petróleo e gás natural doméstico, trabalharam juntos para ajudar o esforço de guerra .

Specification for Subsurface Safety Valve Equipment
Publication date 2016-01

Provides the requirements for subsurface safety valves (SSSVs), and the secondary tools as defined herein necessary to operate the features included within them, including all components that establish tolerances and/or clearances that may affect performance or interchangeability of the SSSV components. It includes repair operations and the interface connections to control conduits and/or other equipment, but does not cover the connections to the primary well conduit.

Steel Gate Valves—Flanged and Butt-Welding Ends, Bolted Bonnets
Publication date 2015-01

Specifies the requirements for a heavy-duty series of bolted bonnet steel gate valves for petroleum refinery and related applications where corrosion, erosion, and other service conditions would indicate a need for full port openings, heavy wall sections, and large stem diameters.

Requirements for Safe Entry and Cleaning of Petroleum Storage Tanks
Publication date 2014-05

This standard provides requirements for safely planning, coordinating, and conducting tank entry and cleaning operations, from removal from service through return to service. This standard does not and cannot cover every possible unique hazard or situation that may arise during tank cleaning operations. Site, product and tank-specific hazards and situations must be addressed by employers using the appropriate principles and considerations provided for by this standard.

Planning, Designing, and Constructing Fixed Offshore Platforms—Working Stress Design
Publication date 2014-11

Contains requirements for the design and construction of new fixed offshore platforms and for the relocation of existing platforms used for drilling, development, and storage of hydrocarbons in offshore areas. In addition, this document should be used in conjunction with API 2SIM for the assessment of existing platforms in the event that it becomes necessary to make a determination of the fitness-for-purpose of the structure.

Operation and Maintenance of Offshore Cranes
Publication date 2014-12

Intended to serve as a guide to crane owners and operators in developing operating and maintenance practices and procedures for use in the safe operation of pedestal-mounted revolving cranes on fixed or floating offshore platforms, jackup drilling rigs, semi-submersible drilling rigs and other types of mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs). Guidelines are also given for the pre-use inspection and testing of temporary cranes (also called self-erecting, leapfrog or bootstrap cranes) that are erected offshore. Equipment (e.g. davits, launch frames) used only for launching life-saving appliances (life boats or life rafts) are not included in the scope of this document.

Specification for Pipeline and Piping Valves (includes Errata 1 dated October 2014 and Errata 2 dated December 2014)
Publication date 2015

Specifies requirements and provides recommendations for the design, manufacturing, testing, and documentation of ball, check, gate, and plug valves for application in pipeline systems meeting ISO 13623 or similar requirements for the petroleum and natural gas industries. This specification is not applicable to subsea pipeline valves, as they are covered by a separate specification (API Spec 6DSS). This specification is not for application to valves for pressure ratings exceeding PN 420 (Class 2500)
