S-712 General Purpose Gear Units and S-713 Special Purpose Gear Units open for user feedback review

JIP33 has issued the following 2 specifications for user feedback review:

The consultation period will run for five weeks, closing on Friday, 10 February 2023 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-712 General Purpose Gear Units (amendments/supplements to API 677) will be updated in accordance with a minimum common set of supplementary requirements for the procurement of general purpose gear units, whilst the S-713 Special Purpose Gear Units (amendments/supplements to API 613) will be updated in accordance with a minimum common set of supplementary requirements for the procurement of special purpose gear units.

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.  A JAMA login is required to access the user feedback review.  Please contact us at feedback quoting the specification number to be provided with login credentials and to be added to the review.

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