Mitigation of Gas Pipeline Integrity 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.
- 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.
