Surface Production Operations: Facility Piping and Pipeline Systems, Volume III is a hands-on guidebook that explains how to apply physical and mechanical principles to all stages of facility piping and pipeline system design, installation, and operation. The manual is available in PDF format. This now-classic series has been around for over twenty years, and throughout that time it has removed all elements of subjectivity from the process of designing, selecting, installing, specifying, operating, testing, and troubleshooting surface production equipment.
A “hands-on” manual for applying physical and mechanical principles to all stages of facility piping and pipeline system design, construction, and operation is provided to readers in the third volume of this work. This authoritative ebook is jam-packed with charts, graphs, and tables, and it offers working engineers and senior field employees a short yet rigorous exposition of the theory behind plumbing and pipelines, as well as the fundamentals and applications of these concepts.
Included is professional guidance for evaluating wall thickness and pressure drop, as well as optimizing line size for liquid, gas, and two-phase lines. Establishing phase states and the impact those states have on the operating conditions of facility pipes and pipeline systems is also covered. A guide to applying international design standards and codes is also provided, as is instruction on how to determine the proper ANSI/API pressure-temperature ratings for pipe flanges, valves, and fittings. Also included is a guide to applying international design standards and codes.
