Surface Production Operations: Facility Piping and Pipeline Systems; Volume III; (PDF) is a hands-on manual for applying physical and mechanical principles to all stages of facility piping and pipeline system design; construction; and operation. For more than twenty years this now classic series has taken the guesswork out of the design; selection; installation; specification; operation; testing; and trouble-shooting of surface production equipment.
The third volume provides readers with a “hands-on” manual for applying physical and mechanical principles to all stages of facility piping and pipeline system design; construction; and operation. Packed with charts; diagrams and tables; this authoritative ebook provides practicing engineer and senior field personnel with a rapid but rigorous exposition of piping and pipeline theory; basics; and application.
Included is expert advice for establishing phase states and their impact on the operating conditions of facility piping and pipeline systems; determining wall thickness and pressure drop; and optimizing line size for liquid; gas and two-phase lines. Also included are a guide to applying international design standards and codes; and guidance on how to choose the appropriate ANSI/API pressure-temperature ratings for pipe flanges; valves; and fittings.
