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

The Planning Guide to Piping Design

Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9780127999937
Release Date: 2013-11-25
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Fresh off of volume two of his piping series, Advanced Piping Design, Peter Smith has joined forces with skilled consultants to take his piping series to the next level. The Planning Guide to Piping Design covers the entire process of planning a plant model project from conceptual to mechanical completion, and explains where the piping lead falls in the process along with his roles and responsibilities. Piping Engineering Leads (or PEL's) used to only receive on-the-job training to learn the operation of producing a process plant. Over time, more schools and programs have developed a more advanced curriculum for piping engineers and designers. However, younger generations of engineers and designers are growing up with a much more technological view of piping design and are in need of a handbook that will explain the proven methods of planning and monitoring the piping design in step-by-step processes. This handbook will provide mentors in the process piping industries the bridge needed for the upcoming engineer and designer to grasp the requirements of piping supervision in the modern age.

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.

The book also includes a wealth of selection tables, covering the key aspects of professional plant design which engineering students and early-career engineers tend to find most challenging. Professor Moran draws on over 20 years' experience in process design to create an essential foundational book ideal for those who are new to process design, compliant with both professional practice and the IChemE degree accreditation guidelines. Explains how to deliver a process design that meets both business and safety criteria Covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programmes and key drawings as aids to design Includes a comprehensive set of selection tables, covering those aspects of professional plant design which early-career designers find most challenging

Process Plant Design

Release Date: 2008-06-25
Genre: Science

This book describes the fascinating wealth of activities as they occur in the design, construction and commissioning of a chemical plant - a jigsaw puzzle of the work of chemical engineers, chemists, constructors, architects, electrical engineers, process automation engineers, economists and legal staff. The author first takes the reader through the conceptual phase, in which the economic relevance and environmental impact need to be considered and supplemented by accurate estimates of capital requirements and profitability. This phase ends with the choice of an appropriate engineering firm and the conclusion of the contract, after which the reader is guided through all aspects of the implementation phase from the engineering of the chemical plant to commissioning, equipment and material procurement, the erection phase and the successful test run, after which the new facility is handed over to its owner. The book also illustrates many potential sources of errors by means of examples from practice, and how, aside professional skills, teamwork and communication are also absolutely essential to keep such a complex project on track.
