Catalog Sections by Industry Segment
Measurements Chapter 11.1 Volume Correction Factors
API has joined forces with Flow-Cal Inc. to develop, market, and support the Chapter 11.1 Code (Temperature and Pressure Volume Correction Factors for Generalized Crude Oils, Refined Products, Special Applications, and Lubricating Oils). This information is available in equations relating volume to pressure which contains physical data that has direct application to volumetric measurements of liquid hydrocarbon.
E&P TANKS (API Publication 4697) is a computer-based software designed to use site-specific information to predict emission from petroleum production storage tanks, now compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 as well as Windows 2000/XP/Vista. It estimates flashing, working and standing losses and calculates losses using specific operations for each user's tank. Cited by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it allows the user to enter specific tank condition information to generate air emission reports.
API Technical Data Book
The API Technical Data Book, co-published and updated annually by the American Petroleum Institute and EPCON International, is the source for the latest, most accurate technical data, methods, and standards on petroleum refining officially sanctioned by the American Petroleum Institute.
SANGEA 4.2 GHG Emissions Estimating System
SANGEA™ is an emissions estimation software tool for the oil and natural gas industry to quantify greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and standardize emissions reporting. It is based on the 2009 API Compendium of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Methodologies for the Oil and Gas Industry and US EPA Mandatory Reporting Rule Subparts C, P, W and Y, including recent updates (RY2015) to US EPA MRR reporting requirements. The software also includes US EPA AP-42 emission factors for criteria pollutants.
API RBI Software
API RP 580 is a Risk-Based Inspection document that identifies the basic elements for developing, implementing, and maintaining an RBI program.
