by Thomas O. Miesner and William L. Leffler
Oil & Gas Pipelines in Nontechnical Language examines the processes, techniques, equipment, and facilities
used to transport liquids such as refined products, crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids through cross-country pipelines. Topics include the importance of the pipeline infrastructure; planning, designing, constructing,
operating, and maintaining pipelines; regulatory requirements; and the challenges for the future. Special emphasis
is included on control and leak detection systems as well as emerging technologies and systems to ensure safe and
environmentally sound operation. Thorough but easy to read, this text is useful for anyone who wants to learn about pipelines, from
petroleum industry newcomers and students to personnel in related arenas such as legal, accounting, financial, government, and others.
How pipelines differ • The first leg • How pipelines work • Oil pipeline operations • Natural gas pipeline operations • Petrochemical
and LPG pipeline operations • Offshore pipelines • SCADA, controls, and leak detection • Maintenance • Investment decisions •
Major components and how they work • Engineering and design • Construction • Satisfying stakeholders

SUBSEA PIPELINE ENGINEERING, 2ND EDITION
by Andrew C. Palmer and Roger A. King
Subsea Pipeline Engineering was the first of its kind, written by two of the world’s most respected authorities in
subsea pipeline engineering. In the second edition, these industry veterans have updated their definitive reference
book, covering the entire spectrum of subjects in the discipline, from route selection and planning to design,
construction, installation, materials and corrosion, inspection, welding, repair, risk assessment, and applicable design
codes and standards. Particular attention is also devoted to the important specialized subjects of hydraulics, strength,
stability, fracture, upheaval, lateral buckling and decommissioning. The book is distilled from the authors’ vast experience in the industry
and their popular course on Subsea Pipeline Engineering.
