ISBN 1 874612 23 4
There is no doubt that the new goal-setting philosophy for managing offshore safety must alter the way in which structural reassessments may be conducted.
This being so we have gathered knowledge from authoritative senior engineers to produce a handbook of lecture notes from a training course which considers a risk based framework for managing offshore structures throughout their life time. Discussion is concentrated primarily on technical considerations.
The key objective of this volume is to cover the latest methods of inspection, assessment and recertification of offshore platforms including subsea pipelines, with the views of leading experts providing a unique insight into typical problems encountered and the most appropriate solutions.
