This comprehensive book offers straightforward, practical techniques for pipeline design and construction, making it an ideal professional reference, training tool, or text for specialized college courses. The authors present the various elements that make up a single-phase liquid and gas pipeline system, including how to design, construct, commission, and assess pipelines and related facilities. They discuss gas and liquid transmission, compression, pumps, protection, and integrity, procurement services, and management of pipeline projects. More complex specialty fluids are also covered, including CO2, H2, slurry and multi-products. Where possible, the authors provide mathematical models and detailed case studies, along with application-oriented examples with sketches and descriptions of systems. References and bibliographical guides are provided for additional information and literature.
