Oil and gas pipelines and piping systems: design, construction, management, and inspection
Bahadori, A in press, Oil and gas pipelines and piping systems: design, construction, management, and inspection, Elsevier Science & Technology. ISBN: 9780128037775.
With pipelines and refineries around the world, especially the US, running at max capacity, understanding and training on equipment, inspection and maintenance is imperative along with understanding associated facility piping systems. Oil and Gas Pipelines and Piping Systems: Design, Construction, Management, and Inspection delivers all the critical aspects needed for oil and gas piping and pipeline condition monitoring and maintenance, minimizing costly disruptions within operations. Broken up into two logical parts, the book begins with coverage on pipelines including essential topics such as material selection, designing for oil and gas central facilities, tank farms and depots, the construction and installment of transportation pipelines, pipe cleaning, and maintenance checklists. Moving over to piping, information covers piping material selection, designing and construction of plant piping systems, with attention paid to flexibility analysis on piping stress, a must-have component for both refineries with piping and pipeline systems. Heavily illustrated and practical for engineers and managers in oil and gas today, Oil and Gas Pipelines and Piping Systems: Design, Construction, Management, and Inspection supplies the oil and gas industry with a must-have reference for safe and effective pipeline and piping operations. * Gain perspective on pipelines and piping operations specific to the oil and gas industry* Understand all the relevant American and European codes and standards as well as English and Metric units for easier reference* Visualize the equipment and operations easily with extensive illustrations from various worldwide case studies and locations
