Compared to single completions, dual completions have a higher initial cost, have more operating problems, are more difficul Hamonization in safety levels requires location-dependent partial action factors. American Petroleum Institute, First Edition, February This document provides recommended practices for the design, operation, optimization, and troubleshooting of dual gas-lift wells.

Do we need to revisit these analyses and reassess target reliabilities? Wave conditions for which the appi approach was calibrated are no longer in 2MET. Emphasis is placed on participation of all engineering disciplines during each stage of planning, development, design, con The purpose of this recommended practice is to present procedures and practices for achieving effective corrosion control on aboveground storage tank bottoms through the use of cathodic protection.

LRFD in later editions of this Rp2 specification are based on calibration with building design practices and may not be applicable to offshore platforms. Three sections were removed i.
