  • Description
  • Contents

In this edition of Oil and Gas Pipelines in Nontechnical Language, Tom Miesner and Bill Leffler leverage the hundreds of courses they have taught in the past decade, along with the interaction with their audiences, clients, and opposing attorneys to present a totally understandable view of pipeline inception, planning, construction, start-up, and operation. Those experiences allowed them to expand but simplify the complexities of pipelines, including a totally revised chapter on equipment that provides a complete view of pipeline components. A separate chapter on control systems updates this technology. An expanded discussion of pipeline integrity including the concept of risk management demonstrates how important the subjects of safety, reliability, efficiency, and environmental performance have become.

Hundreds of pictures, drawings, and graphs taken and developed by the authors since the first edition bring the material to life. With all these changes and upgrades, the final conclusion is the same as the first edition - an overriding challenge to the oil and gas pipeline industry remains balancing the needs and wants of the industry's myriad of stakeholders.
