API RP 14B-2015 pdf free download.Design, Installation, Operation, Test, and Redress of Subsurface Safety Valve Systems.
1 Scope This document establishes requirements and provides guidelines for subsurface safety valve (SSSV) system equipment. This includes requirements for SSSV system design, installation, operation, testing, redress, support activities, documentation, and failure reporting. SSSV system equipment addressed by this document includes control systems, control lines, SSSVs, and secondary tools as defined herein. SSSV types including surface controlled (SCSSV), sub-surface controlled (SSCSV), and sub-surface injection safety valves (SSISV) are included. Requirements for testing of SSSVs including frequency and acceptance criteria are included. Alternate technology SSSV equipment and systems are included in these requirements. This document is not applicable to design, qualification, or repair activities for SSSVs. This document does not specify when a SSSV is required. NOTE API 14A provides requirements for SSSV equipment design, qualification, and repair. 2 Normative References The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.
