Welcome to the home page for the CRE Subcommittee on Electrical Equipment (SOEE). The mission of the SOEE is to develop standards and recommended practices specific to the refining industry including:
RP 500 Electrical Area Classification
Std. 541 Form Wound Induction Motors and
API 540 Electrical Installations in Petrochemical Facilities.
The SOEE also works closely with other standards organizations such as IEE and NFPA including providing technical comments to NFPA 70 National Electrical Code (NEC). The subcommittee analyzes technical issues, provides training and advice on relevant technical issues and shares information which is useful to the industry as a group.
This site provides information on upcoming meetings, minutes and presentations from recent meeting and information on the status and balloting of standards maintained by the SOEE.
