Managing Pipeline Threats Managing Pipeline Threats


Save almost $25 – order the print version by March 1.

An introduction to managing threats to pipeline safety and operations, this new book examines all the types of threats – from illegal tapping to corrosion, cracking, accidental third-party damage, geotechnical hazards and defective construction - and explains the methods and practices used to prevent or mitigate them.

This book is an introduction to managing threats in pipelines. Everyone working in the pipeline industry – and anyone concerned with safe and reliable operation of pipelines – needs to be aware of threats and must understand how the resulting risks are managed.

A novel feature of the book is embedded QR codes and links with which the reader can access an extensive online library of reference documents, illustrations, photographs and videos.

The book opens with an introductory overview and a chapter on ‘Pipeline Engineering Principles,’ which introduces the reader to the infrastructure that transports our energy around the world: crude oil and natural gas pipelines. It also gives basic principles in pipeline engineering and explains some pipeline design concepts.

Pipelines are made using steel tubes called ‘line pipe,’ and Chapter 3, ‘Line Pipe Principles,’ covers the manufacture of this line pipe and the standards used to ensure high quality. Chapter 4, an ‘Introduction to In-line inspection, or ILI – the use of inspection tools inside a pipeline – reviews the in-line inspection tools available today for inspecting all the types of high-pressure pipelines.

Chapters 5 through 12 cover some of the main threats to pipelines: corrosion, cracking, mechanical damage, geohazards, material and construction defects, theft, and specific threats to submarine pipelines. Chapter 13, ‘Pipeline Defect Assessment Basics,’ introduces the reader to methods for assessing the significance of pipeline defects such as corrosion and dents.

Chapter 14 is devoted to ‘Pipeline Integrity Management.’ Integrity management is part of asset management and includes the many and varied activities pipeline operators must undertake to ensure that releases of products from their pipelines do not occur.

In the final chapter several eminent figures in the pipeline industry share their thoughts on the state of current technology and the needs and promise of the future.

Since publication of the first edition of Pipeline Pigging and Integrity Technology 25 years ago, there have been massive advances the pigging and inspection industry: superb high-technology solutions have been developed, using some of the most advanced and reliable technology paralleling the aerospace industry, and feature assessments down to millimetric sizes are almost the norm. Inspection data interpretation has also developed to the stage where it's no longer a black art: survey results can be examined and analysed on a client's own PC or laptop, the thought of which was almost unheard of only a decade ago. But still some basic questions remain unanswered, probably the most basic of all being -how clean is my pipeline?- and -how best to design a pig launcher and receiver?

This book, as with previous editions, provides an overview of some of the latest thinking and achievements in the area of pigging technology and integrity management. Its content is 41 papers from the series of conferences entitled Pipeline Pigging & Integrity Management (now known as PPIM) that the publishers have organized in Houston and elsewhere between 2007 and 2012, chosen to represent a wide range of issues concerning the pipeline industry and maintenance of its integrity. Printed in full color throughout.
