Surface Production Operations series for over twenty years, has taken the guess work out of the design, selection, specification, installation, operation, testing, and trouble-shooting of surface production equipment. The third volume in this classic series, Facility Piping and Pipelines presents readers with a ?hands on? manual for applying mechanical and physical principles to all phases of facility piping and pipeline system design, construction and operation. Packed with charts, tables, and diagrams, this authoritative book provides practicing engineer and senior field personnel with a quick but rigorous exposition of piping and pipeline theory, fundamentals, and application. Readers find expert advice for determining phase states and their impact on the operating conditions of facility piping and pipeline systems; determining pressure drop, wall thickness and optimize line size for gas, liquid and two-phase lines. In addition, the authors provides readers with a guide to applying international design codes / standards such as ASME/ANSI B31.3, ASME / ANSI B31.4, ASME ANSI B31.8, ASME Section VIII, Division 1 and 2, API RP 520 Parts 1 and 2, API 526, API RP 521. API RP 2000, API RP 14E, API RP 14J and API RP 14C as well as how to select the appropriate ANSI / API pressure/temperature ratings for pipe flanges, valves and fittings. With this book, readers learn not only ?what? but ?how? piping and pipelines systems work but also the various equipment and systems comprising production operations. The book places emphasis on understanding the internal workings of piping, pipeline systems and their components. Covers new and existing piping systems including concepts for expansion, supports, manifolds, pigging and insulation requirements Design a pipeline pigging system Detect, monitor and control pipeline corrosion Identify onshore and offshore safety and environmental practices How to evaluate mechanical integrity
