MY LATEST RESEARCH
On average, oil and gas companies, and water/wastewater industries, use six per cent of their annual income to combat corrosion.
This book has been prepared to satisfy the needs of students, practicing engineers and scientists for an introduction to the corrosion protection for the oil and gas industry, and overcome corrosion issues. The author have made the book very concise and easily understood.
This book covers the subject of corrosion protection for the oil and gas industry. It is concerned primarily with the external and internal corrosion protection of onshore pipelines, subsea pipelines, but reference is also made to the protection of other subsea equipment, subsea structures, risers, and shore approaches. The corrosion protection of pipelines (either onshore or subsea), which operate at elevated temperatures and therefore require the application of an anti-corrosion and/or thermal insulation coating capable of withstanding such corrosion is also covered.
Two case studies, design examples, and my experience as a pipeline integrity engineer is featured in this book. Readers should have a high quality and in-depth understanding of the corrosion protection methods available and apply them to solve corrosion-engineering problems.
Mitigation of Gas Pipeline Integrity Problems presents the methodology to enable engineers, experienced or not, to alleviate pipeline integrity problems during operation. It explains the principal considerations and establishes a common approach in tackling technical challenges that may arise during gas production. This book comprehensively covers
third-party damage, corrosion, construction and materials defect, geotechnical hazards, stress corrosion cracking, off-spec sales gas, natural gas hydrate, and leak and break detection
Details various hazard mitigation options
Offers tested concepts of pipeline integrity blended with recent research results, documented in a scholarly fashion to make it simple to the average reader
This practical work serves the needs of advanced students, researchers, and professionals working in pipeline engineering and petrochemical industries.
