Using Standard Test Methods

Testing to National and International Standards

Factory acceptance tests (FAT) or third-party qualification tests can be performed following industry standards and recommended practices. Our focus is typically on testing full-scale specimens. We also conduct some of the more challenging and less common bench-scale tests.

Some of the testing standards that we have followed include:

Flow Equipment Testing Standards:

  • API 6A – Specification for Wellhead and Christmas Tree Equipment;
  • API 6AV1 – Specification for Validation of Wellhead Surface Safety Valves and Underwater Safety Valves for Offshore Service;
  • API 14A – Subsurface Safety Valve Equipment;
  • API 17D – Design and Operation of Subsea Production Systems: Subsea Wellhead and Tree Equipment;
  • ANSI/ISA-75.02.01 – Control Valve Capacity Test Procedures;
  • API MPMS Ch. 20.3 – Measurement of Multiphase Flow;
  • API RP 17S – Recommended Practice for the Design, Testing, and Operation of Subsea Multiphase Flow Meters; and

Casing Connection Qualification Standards:

  • API RP 5C5:2017 – Procedures for Testing Casing and Tubing Connections; and
  • ISO 13679:2002 – Petroleum and natural gas industries — Procedures for testing casing and tubing connections.
