API SPEC 12J Standard for Exploration & Production
This specification covers minimum requirements for the design, fabrication, and shop testing of oil-field type oil and gas separators and/or oil-gas-water separators used in the production of oil and/or gas, and usually located but not limited to some point on the producing flowline between the wellhead and pipeline. Separators covered by this specification may be vertical, spherical, or single or double barrel horizontal.
Unless otherwise agreed upon between the purchaser and the manufacturer, the jurisdiction of this specification terminates with the pressure vessel as defined in the Scope of Section VIII, Division 1 of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, hereinafter referred to as the ASME Code. Pressure vessels covered by this specification are normally classified as natural resource vessels by API 510, Pressure Vessel Inspection Code. Separators outside the scope of this specification include centrifugal separators, filter separators, and de-sanding separators.
Any manufacturer producing equipment or materials represented as conforming with an API specification is responsible for complying with all the provisions of that specification. API does not represent, warrant or guarantee that such products do in fact conform to the applicable API standard or specification.
