Oil and Gas Pipelines in Nontechnical Language by Thomas Miesner and William Leffler
Over a profession, area operators and technicians, management room operators, senior operators, schedulers, and administrators offered safety from making errors that got here throughout our studying years, or they allowed “secure” errors that helped the data course of. Our expertise has been that just about everybody we encountered in the pipeline trade willingly shared their successes and failures, offering us additional alternatives to study.
Once we began this e-book, we didn’t intend to have a chapter on chemical pipeline operations, however Paul Davis volunteered to write down the chapter for us. He helped us perceive the important nature of the lighter hydrocarbons, and deserves early point out amongst these serving to with the e-book. We wrote chapter 3 first as a result of it established the essential data for the remainder of the e-book.

John Bartos and Rick Ykema added in-depth data to compressors and compressor operations for chapter 11.
Being concerned with a whole alternative of SCADA and leak detection programs is one thing nobody ought to need to do greater than as soon as in a profession. Regardless of that, as we wrote the e-book, Galen Stanley took further time to assist us higher conceptualize leak detection and its relationship to SCADA as we tried to place data into phrases. Luis Gamboa assisted with native SCADA, and Richard Parker and Kevin Rittie reviewed the complete chapter. John Keifner lent his data and expertise to chapter 9, offering worthwhile critique.
