(informative)
Example Choke and Kill System Configurations
Figure H.1 through Figure H.7 depict typical configurations of kill line, choke line, and manifold arrangements for
surface and subsea applications. These configurations are taken from API 53 with the exception of the 20,000 psi
(138 MPa) rated working pressure configurations.
