The global chemical and petroleum industries have always had the challenge of disposing of chemical wastes, by-products, and residuals, but with traditional techniques such as deep well injection and incineration proving flawed, the need for disposal by legal, safe and economically effective means has never been greater. Increasingly, the need to produce without pollution is the preferred model for industry, and the strategy of waste minimization is seen as the best way forward. This is particularly relevant in the petrochemical and chemical industries, where large quantities of hazardous and toxic wastes are produced which can pose formidable disposal problems.
The petroleum and chemical industries contain a wide variety of corrosive environments, many of which
By selecting the correct material and applying proper corrosion protection methods, these costs can be
Corrosion problems in petroleum and chemical industries
Intended for engineers and industry personnel working in the petroleum and chemical industries, this book is also a valuable resource for research and development teams, safety engineers, corrosion specialists and researchers in chemical engineering, engineering and materials science.
The new second edition of this authoritative book has retained all the virtues of the best-selling original, explaining the unique challenges of oil and gas exploration and production in the world's deepwater provinces. New chapters on geology and geophysics, rigs, and service vehicles are included, and the engineering and scientific schemes used in deepwater are covered in greater detail. Case studies in several chapters give practical examples, while the final chapter presents the latest technology employed in a "third wave" of industry evolution. Contents: Foreword Introduction A century getting ready Letting go of the past Geology and geophysics Exploring the deepwater Drilling rigs Drilling and completing the well Development systems Fixed structures Floating productions systems Subsea systems Topsides Pipelines, flowlines, and risers Offshore support vessels Technology and the third wave
