S-700 Special Purpose Coupling open for user feedback review

JIP33 has issued the S-700 – Special Purpose Coupling specification for user feedback review.  The consultation period runs for six weeks and will close on Sunday, 09 January 2022 at 23:00 GMT.

The purpose of this user feedback review is to capture your assessment on the requirements of an existing specification so that we can further our stated goals of improving procurement and delivery of equipment for the oil and gas industry.  This is the first step in the update and revision of our specifications and is a chance for purchasers and suppliers to be able to comment on how the current specification requirements can be improved.

During the revision process, the S-700 Special Purpose Coupling will be updated in accordance with a minimum common set of requirements for the procurement of special purpose couplings in accordance with API671 5th Edition  – Special Purpose Couplings for Petroleum, Chemical and Gas Industry Services and co-publication (an identical adoption of ISO 10441 2nd Ed. 2007 – Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries – Flexible couplings for mechanical power transmission – Special-purpose applications remains unchanged) for application in the petroleum and natural gas industries.

The JIP33 standardized procurement specification normally follows a common document structure comprising of four documents, which together with the purchase order define the overall technical specification for procurement.

It has been developed in consultation with a broad user and supplier base to realize benefits from standardization and achieve significant project and schedule cost reductions.

Instructions on providing feedback can be found on our Specification Development page.

Updates and future specifications will be announced via the project’s mailing list, LinkedIn and Twitter profile.
