Oil & Gas Pipelines In Nontechnical Language
This text explains the hows and whys of the pipeline industry. It was written for those not directly involved in pipeline operations -- legal, supply, accounting, finance, and human resource specialists, and people who service and sell equipment to pipeline companies. But even engineers and expert pipeliners can gain insights from the book's depth and broad perspective. Co-authored by veteran pipeline executive Tom Miesner and William Leffler, a leading petroleum nontechnical writer, the text is designed for those who need working knowledge of the essential aspects of pipelining, but don't have time to deal with every underlying technical detail. It is replete with pictures, charts and diagrams covering everything from inception to operation.
Key features and benefits:
A comprehensive look at all aspects of pipelining
Oil, gas, LPG and chemical pipelines
