Corrosion Inspection and Monitoring
Author: Roberge
Price: $134.00

Strategic corrosion inspection and monitoring can improve asset management and life cycle assessment and optimize operational budgets.  Advances in computer technologies and electronics have led to very efficient tools for monitoring and inspecting corrosion, including impedance spectroscopy, electrical field signatures, acoustic emissions, and radiographs.  This up-to-date reference explains both intrusive and non-intrusive methods of measuring corrosion rates. It covers:

  •  The impact of corrosion on the economy and the safe operation of systems in diverse operational environments
  • The various forms of corrosion, with a focus on the detectability of corrosion damage in the real world
  • The principles of risk-based inspection and various risk assessment methodologies (HAZOP, FMECA, FTA and ETA), with examples from industry
  • The monitoring of microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC), cathodic protection (CP) systems, and atmospheric corrosion
  • Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques, including visual, ultrasonic, radiographic, electromagnetic, and thermographic inspection
  • Roadmaps used by various industries and organizations for carrying out complex inspection and monitoring schedules

Introduction to Petroleum Exploration and Engineering
Author: Palmer, Andrew
Price: $72.00

This book is an introduction to oil and gas designed to be both accessible to absolute beginners who know nothing about the subject, and at the same time interesting to people who work in one area (such as drilling or seismic exploration) and would like to know about other areas (such as production offshore, or how oil and gas were formed, or what can go wrong).

It begins by discussing oil and gas in the broader context of human society, and goes on to examine what they consist of, how and where they were formed, how we find them, how we drill for them and how we measure them . It describes production onshore and offshore, and examines in detail some instructive mishaps, including some that are well known, such as Deepwater Horizon and Pi per Alpha, and others that are less known. It looks at recent developments such as shale oil, and concludes with some speculation about the future. It includes many references for readers who would like to read further. The mathematical content is minimal, and can be skipped.

Professor Andrew Palmer is currently Keppel Chair Professor in the Centre for Offshore Research and Engineering of the Department of Civil Engineering at the National University of Singapore. He has divided his career equally between practice as a consulting engineer and university teaching. In 1985 he founded Andrew Palmer & Associates, a company of consulting engineers who specialize in marine pipelines. In 1996, Professor Palmer returned to research and university teaching as Research Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Cambridge University in the UK. He was a Visiting Professor in the Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University from 2002 to 2003. Professor Palmer is a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers, and current chairman of the DNV Pipelines Committee.

Key Features

  • Written by one of the most eminent researchers in this field
  • Capacity and limit states for tubular structures
  • Geometric and mechanical property characteristics of tubular structures
  • Design recommendations aimed at the practicing professional

As exploration and production of oil and gas move to deeper waters, a precise understanding of the mechanical behavior of tubular structures becomes increasingly important. The increasing external pressure combined with the hostility of the environment, place stringent demands on the design, installation and operation of pipelines, flowlines, risers and casing. The first book in a three book series, Mechanics of Offshore Pipelines, Volume One: Buckling and Collapse provides an in-depth understanding of the major limit states that affect these structures, ranging from collapse under external pressure to burst under internal pressure, as well as how these factors can affect the manufacture of the pipes, their installation, and their long-term operation on the sea floor. The book includes and introduction to offshore facilities and pipeline installation methods used to motivate the limit states considered. A chapter on pipe and tube manufacturing processes outlines the geometric and mechanical property characteristics of tubulars used in this industry. The next nine chapters analyze several of the limit states encountered, including local buckling and collapse caused by pressure, bending, tension, compression and combinations of these.

Contents: Introduction; Offshore facilities and pipeline installation methods; Pipe and tube manufacturing processes; Buckling and collapse under external pressure; Collapse of UOE pipe under external pressure; Collapse of dented pipes under external pressure; Buckling and collapse under combined external pressure and tension; Inelastic response, buckling and collapse under pure binding; Buckling and collapse under combined bending and external pressure; Inelastic response under combined bend and tension; Plastic buckling and collapse under axial compression; Combined internal pressure and axial compression; Elements of plasticity theory.

New! Pipeline Risk Assessment: The Definitive Approach and Its Role in Risk Management E-book (Adobe Reader)
Author: Muhlbauer
Price: $145.00

From the National Transportation Safety Board Safety Study
Integrity Management of Gas Transmission Pipelines in High Consequence Areas,
January 27, 2015:

"The study did find that IM programs... require expert knowledge and integration of multiple technical disciplines including... probability and statistics, and risk management.... The study found that aspects of the operators' threat identification and risk assessment processes require improvement."

Print Book + E-book Combo

The optimum management of risks emerges from the best understanding of risks. Risk understanding is now available to all, via efficient and intuitive risk assessment. This book presents the definitive approach to assessing risks from pipelines—an approach that overcomes the limitations of previous methodologies.

As the definitive approach, the methodology must:

  • Provide clarity—generating immediately useful information to decision-makers
  • Be comprehensive and complete
  • Capture and integrate real world processes
  • Dispel myths arising from risk assessment past practice
  • Remove unnecessary complexity that interferes with understanding risk
  • Be cost-effective to create, apply, and manage.

As with the author’s previous works, the recommended methodology detailed here is a practical, easy-to-apply approach to measuring risks associated with operating any type of pipeline in any environment. Risk assessment need not be a complex academic exercise. It should be a straightforward practice, used by – and useful to – any and all stakeholders in a pipeline’s operation.

Some specific features of the definitive approach include:

  • The three critical determinants of failure probability—exposure, mitigation, resistance.
  • Using inspection information directly, intuitively, and efficiently in a risk assessment.
  • Measuring damage potential separately from failure potential.
  • Automatic and intuitive incorporation of interacting threats—weaknesses overlapping failure mechanisms.
  • The role of time-to-failure estimation in modeling corrosion and cracking.
  • Using hazard zones to understand potential consequence scenarios.
  • Representing all possible consequence scenarios with a manageable set.
  • The best use—not the most common use—of historical incident statistics
  • The essential role of the risk profile—proper risk management cannot occur without it.
  • Conservatism—both P50 and P90+ risk assessments are needed.
  • Making the risk assessment readily expandable—it should ‘get smarter’ as new knowledge becomes available.

Herein lies essential guidance for keeping pipelines safe: Improving risk knowledge, leading to superior risk management, leading to safer pipelines.
