Due to a lack of structured training in academic and technical institutions, engineers and pipe designers today may understand various computer software programs but lack the fundamental understanding and implementation of how to lay out process plants and run piping correctly in the oil and gas industry. The Engineer’s Guide to Plant Layout and Piping Design for the Oil and Gas Industries fills this training void with a complete and practical understanding of the requirements and procedures for producing a safe, economical, operable, and maintainable process facility. Easy to understand for either the beginner or the novice to use as reference, this guide includes critical standards, newer designs, practical checklists and rules of thumb. Starting with basic terms, codes, and basis for selection, the book focuses on each piece of equipment such as pumps, towers, underground piping, pipe sizes and supports, including selection. Rounding out with piping stress analysis and the daily needed calculations to use on the job, The Engineer’s Guide to Plant Layout and Piping Design for the Oil and Gas Industries gives pipeline engineers and plant managers a critical real-world reference to design, manage, and implement safe and effective plants and piping systems for today’s operations. Delivers practical guide to pipe supports, structures and hangers available in one go-to source Includes information on stress analysis basics, quick checks, pipe sizing and pressure drop Ensures compliance with the latest piping and plant layout codes and complies with worldwide risk management legislation and HSE

Handbook for Process Plant Project Engineers

Author: Peter Watermeyer
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 1860583709
Release Date: 2002-10-04
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This excellent book systematically identifies the issues surrounding the effective linking of project management techniques and engineering applications. It is not a technical manual, nor is it procedure-led. Instead, it encourages creative learning of project engineering methodology that can be applied and modified in different situations. In short, it offers a distillation of practical ‘on-the job’ experience to help project engineers perform more effectively. While this book specifically addresses process plants, the principles are applicable to other types of engineering project where multidisciplinary engineering skills are required, such as power plant and general factory construction. It focuses on the technical aspects, which typically influence the configuration of the plant as a whole, on the interface between the various disciplines involved, and the way in which work is done – the issues central to the co-ordination of the overall engineering effort. It develops an awareness of relationships with other parties – clients, suppliers, package contractors, and construction managers – and of how the structure and management of these relationships impact directly on the performance of the project engineer. Readers will welcome the author’s straightforward approach in tackling sensitive issues head on.
