  • Conclusion.
With millions of kilometres of onshore and offshore oil and gas pipelines in service around the world, pipelines are the life's blood of the world. Notorious for disrupting natural gas production or transmission, the formation of natural gas hydrates can cost a company hundreds of millions and lead to catastrophic equipment breakdowns and safety and health hazards. Written by an international group of experts, "Natural Gas Hydrates in Flow Assurance" provides an expert overview of the practice and theory in natural gas hydrates, with applications primarily in flow assurance. Compact and easy to use, the book provides readers with a wealth of materials which include the key lessons learned in the industry over the last 20 years. Packed with field case studies, the book is designed to provide hands-on training and practice in calculating hydrate phase equilibria and plug dissociation. In addition, readers receive executable programs to calculate hydrate thermodynamics. This title features: case studies of hydrates in flow assurance; the key concepts underlying the practical applications; and, an overview of the state of the art flow assurance industrial developments.

"This book gives a detailed description and analysis of the events leading up to the explosion and fire at BP's Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010. The authors provide a comprehensive, fair account of what happened and why, and what could be done to minimize the risk of future business and engineering disasters. Boebert and Blossom question the disaggregated business model for companies that undertake risky, complicated engineering projects in difficult and dangerous environments. They argue that a systems approach, with hands-on attention from top management, is crucial. Writing for the general intelligent reader, the authors provide a clear description of the technicalities of the rig, how it was supposed to work, and how it failed"-- Provided by publisher.
