Welcome to the home page for the CRE Subcommittee on Mechanical Equipment (SOME). The SOME develops and maintains a diverse set of mechanical equipment standards based on the fundamental tenets of safety, performance, and reliability. These standards address the purchaser's total life-cycle costs by specifying minimum design requirements and, where applicable, default criteria, while being flexible enough to meet the needs of a specific application.
This site houses the SOME working documents, meeting agendas and presentations, and other relevant material.
Please Note: Minutes and other member working documents are located on a SCCM secure page entitled "SOME Committee Docs" and require the user to log in from this home page. For those members who do not have access, please contact the API staff person listed below and learn how you can become involved the work of the subcommittee.
The SOME standard program of documents includes:
Chair: Jeremy Cooper, Bechtel
Vice-Chair: Ed Wilcox, Chevron
