The IADC Lexicon (IADCLexicon.org) is a compendium of upstream-related terms, which, unlike conventional glossaries, are official definitions drawn from legislation, regulation and regulatory guidance, standards (global, national and regional), and IADC guidelines. Terms often have multiple definitions from different sources.
This month’s Featured Term is:
“Connector” (API Technical Report 17TR7, Verification and Validation of Subsea Connectors, First Edition, April 2017.) :
Mechanical device used to connect adjacent components to create a pressure-containing structural joint resisting applied loads and preventing leakage.
