Book Description: There are very few books on the market that cover offshore petroleum engineering, and there are none at all on offshore pipelines. Over a third of the growth in drilling worldwide is expected to come from offshore. The development of offshore pipelines is an extremely hot topic in the energy industry. This book is the most up-to-date reference for the engineers and developers challenged with bringing the oil and gas onshore. * Pipeline design engineers will learn how to design low-cost pipelines allowing long-term operability and safety.* Pipeline operation engineers and management personnel will learn how to operate their pipeline systems in a cost effective manner.* Deepwater pipelining is a new technology developed in the past ten years and growing quickly.
