Mitigation of Gas Pipeline Integrity Problems

Mitigation of Gas Pipeline Integrity Problems

Author: Mavis Sika Okyere Format: Hardback Release Date: 05/10/2020

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. Covers third-party damage, corrosion, geotechnical hazards, stress corrosion cracking, off-spec sales gas, improper design or material selection, as-built flaws, improper operations, 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.

Corrosion Protection for the Oil and Gas Industry

Corrosion Protection for the Oil and Gas Industry

Author: Mavis Sika Okyere Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2020

Corrosion Protection for the Oil and Gas Industry: Pipelines, Subsea Equipment, and Structures summarizes the main causes of corrosion and requirements for materials protection, selection of corrosion-resistant materials and coating materials commonly used for corrosion protection, and the limitations to their use, application, and repair. This book focuses on the protection of steels against corrosion in an aqueous environment, either immersed in seawater or buried. It also includes guidelines for the design of cathodic protection systems and reviews of cathodic protection methods, materials, installation, and monitoring. It is concerned primarily with the external and internal corrosion protection of onshore pipelines and subsea pipelines, but reference is also made to the protection of other equipment, subsea structures, risers, and shore approaches. Two case studies, design examples, and the author's own experiences as a pipeline integrity engineer are featured in this book. Readers will develop a high quality and in-depth understanding of the corrosion protection methods available and apply them to solve corrosion engineering problems. This book is aimed at students, practicing engineers, and scientists as an introduction to corrosion protection for the oil and gas industry, as well as to overcoming corrosion issues.
