API Technical Report 21TR1, 1st Edition

API’s new technical report aids oil and natural gas companies in selecting the right materials for bolting, a key to safe and reliable operations. “Materials Selection for Bolting” assists companies in choosing the correct materials based on the environment in which a company is working and helps assure that these important components are resilient in their operating environment.  The guidance also includes bolting recommendations for offshore drilling in both shallow and deep water, addressing saltwater corrosion issues faced by facilities.

API TR 21TR1 also seeks to address industry and regulatory concerns regarding connector bolts in all equipment deployed in offshore and other oil and natural gas exploration and production.  

API TR 21TR1 is now available to purchase at the API Publications Store.
