Subsea and Pipeline Engineering
ISBN 1 874612 12 9
This handbook presents a whole range of work leading to the final selection of facilities for a subsea field development, presented in sixteen sections prepared.
Various aspects of subsea engineering are described together with typical field development options. Umbilicals, cables and flexible pipes are also considered and their essential design parameters are identified. Methods of progressing subsea systems are investigated, through to the point at which detailed design can begin. Reliability issues are covered by means of a methodological risk analysis, and the book includes summaries of key considerations for easy reference.
