Drilling Engineering

   Drilling engineering is a challenging discipline in the oil patch. It goes beyond what is found in textbooks. The technological advances in the past two decades have been very significant. These advances have allowed the oil industry worldwide to economically and successfully exploit oil and gas fields that may have not been possible before. The fundamentals of fluid mechanics and solid mechanics, along with the basic scientific concepts of chemistry, form the basis of drilling engineering. The rewards and successes of drilling projects are predicated on the ability of the drilling engineer who fully understands all the engineering aspects and equipment required to drill a usable hole at the lowest dollar per foot, in vertical well drilling, or at the highest equivalent barrel of oil per foot in horizontal/multilateral well drilling. In the oil industry, it is common practice to assume that problems may be encountered during the drilling process of a well and can differ from one well to the other, even in the same area. The drilling engineer has the responsibility to be able to think beyond simply the engineering equations in combating some of these problems. He or she must anticipate drilling problems, devise solutions, and choose the best alternatives. They must be intuitive, must have common sense, and be able to think quickly and decisively. In this book, the authors have prepared illustrative examples and supplementary problems that hopefully will encourage the students to cultivate their creative thinking, develop confidence in reaching independently for what is needed to solve problems, and above all, energize their common sense to make wise decisions.

Compressed Air Operations Manual

   The purpose of this book is to provide a basic understanding of the compressed air systems, equipment, and technologies that are available on the market today. You might have many years of experience with a specific compression system, but the catalogs and sales literature just aren't providing you with the information you need. Maybe you've just been assigned the compression system as part of your responsibilities and you have no experience whatsoever with this type of equipment. Oftentimes, the compressors are the bastard child of a company's capital equipment and no one in particular is responsible for them. If you head up the company's maintenance department, the compressors probably fall under your responsibilities. You may be a salesman who works with pneumatic-powered equipment and, from time to time, are asked to comment on your customer's compression systems. In any case, this book will give you the baseline information that will allow you to make well-informed decisions about specifying, expanding, or assessing a compression system. Like many technical people, I felt that I had a clear conceptual understanding of air compression, I mean, what's to know? You suck in some air, you smash it into a tank. Simple! I even built an air compressor from an old auto AC pump and a piece of pipe when I was in high school.юю

Guidelines for Survey of Sailing Craft

   The Guidelines applies to new constructed sailing craft intended for leisure and pleasure of less than 24 m in length, excluding those for sports. The design categories of sailing craft are as follows: - Category I means the craft designed for navigating exceeding 200 n miles off the shore and with the minimum design significant wave height of б m; - Category II means the craft designed for navigating within 200 n miles off the shore and with the minimum design significant wave height of 4 m; - Category HI means the craft designed for navigating within 20 n miles off the shore and with the minimum design significant wave height of 2 m; - Category IV means the craft designed for navigating within 10 n miles off the shore and with the minimum design significant wave height of 1 m; - Category V means the craft designed for navigating within 5 n miles off the shore and with the minimum design significant wave height of 0.5 m. Unless expressly provided otherwise in the Guidelines, the machinery and electrical installations(other than main propulsion) and outfitting onboard the sailing craft are to meet the relevant requirements of PART ONE of CCS Rules for Construction and Classification of Yachts, of which the design of steering gears is to meet the relevant provisions of ISO standards. Unless expressly provided otherwise in the Guidelines, the statutory requirements for fire safety, life-saving, cabin arrangement, watertight integrity, communication and navigation, signal, environment protection, etc., are to meet the relevant provisions of the Administration. For sailing craft entitled to fly the flag of China, the relevant requirements of Part One of MSA Interim Provisions for Statutory Survey of Yachts are to be complied with. The material and construction technology of sailing craft are to comply with the relevant requirements of CCS Rules for Materials and Welding or other recognized standards.

Fire Pump Handbook

   NFPA 25 was introduced in 1992 to promote these activities and certain sections specifically pertain to fire pumps. NFPA recognizes that an installation standard such as NFPA 20 or maintenance document such as NFPA 25 must be suitable for enforcement and, as a result, must be concise and without explanatory text. Additionally, it must be acknowledged that such standards cannot be written to cover every situation that could be encountered. Therefore, NFPA 20 and NFPA 25 must be applied with judgment, the application of good sense, and an awareness of the rationale for the requirements. To assist in this task, NFPA, in partnership with the NFSA, has developed the Fire Pump Handbook. The present publication is intended to provide users of NFPA 20 and applicable portions of NFPA 25 with background information on certain requirements. The book also contains some suggestions on how certain provisions of the standards can be implemented effectively. The contents of the handbook are intended to provide users of NFPA 20 and NFPA 25 with a better understanding and appreciation of the documents. However, the reader is cautioned to look upon the commentary and other supporting information as views of the editors and contributing authors. Only the contents of NFPA 20 and NFPA 25 are considered the official position of NFPA.

Managing Drilling Operations

   In the present publication dedicated to the drilling operations, all the technologies involved in this process, have been addressed. The book not only covers the obvious operational aspects of drilling oil wells and gas wells, but also tackles a bit less obvious but still equally important fields of Contingency Planning, Economics, Optomosation, Contracts, and Problem-solving. A chapter is devoted to the creation of a Drilling Policy Document which can be used by the operating company as the back bone for its operations. The process os selection and acceptance of drilling rig is discussed in detail and finally Land and Offshore Operations are broken down into their component parts in a flow chart format. In order to fit all this into a manageable sized text has meant making the assumption that readers of the book are already familiar with drilling equipment and terminology. Furthermore, a multiplicity of units have been used in this book, reflecting current industry indecision on a standard. It is also assumed by the authors that readers are conversant with these units or at least have access to conversion tables.
