Chemical and Mechanical Methods of Pipeline Integrity
Providing a comprehensive overview of the science and technology behind maintaining pipelines, Chemical and Mechanical Methods of Pipeline Integritywas written for oil and gas professionals responsible for ensuring consistent product delivery. Wayne Frenier details in this new book a variety of pipeline environments and then explores the challenges that require chemical or mechanical intervention. Internal corrosion and the corrosion mechanisms that affect pipeline and facility operations are included in the discussion along with a short introduction to Integrity Management (IM) processes. With a strong focus on the connections between the production of hydrocarbons, production facilities, and the pipelines that take the products to the refineries, Chemical and Mechanical Methods of Pipeline Integrity was written for a general technical audience with a basic understanding of chemistry.
