ASTM International and the American Petroleum Institute (API) have collaborated to launch a petroleum standards collection to help customers throughout the oil and gas industry access the standards they need in one convenient location.

Housed in the ASTM Compass online platform, the API collection includes 685 active standards, specifications, and recommended practices as well as over 300 historical documents. These documents – developed by leading experts in the oil and natural gas industry – are often referenced in U.S. state and federal regulations as well as internationally.

Users will have access to globally-recognized API documents on a wide range of topics: exploration and production, refining, safety and fire protection, storage, petroleum measurement tables, health and environmental issues, and marketing.

ASTM Compass provides organization-wide access to standards with a number of enhancements beyond the documents themselves:

  • tools for bookmarking for easy retrieval on multiple visits,
  • tools for forming project teams,
  • ASTM petroleum training modules and test practice videos, and
  • access to thousands of peer-reviewed papers and books in the ASTM Digital Library.
