Deepstar Project Subsea Industry on the Use of API 17TR8 & ASME Section VIII

As it becomes more fiscally feasible to pursue deepwater drilling, there will likely be a renewed interest in the field of deepwater production. At depths that approach two miles (three kilometers) subsea, and pressures that approach 20 ksi (1380 bar), there are significant challenges that arise. These challenges include ensuring asset reliability in aggressive environments, minimal access for inspection, limited options for repairs, environmental safety considerations and federal oversight.
