SUBSEA ENGINEERING HANDBOOK

Obviously, the design and construction of the offshore structures capable of withstanding unique and extreme challenges existing there in subsea operation is very complex task. Taking into account that the wells drilled in the deep waters reach greater depths, the engineers involved in the design process, are normally confronted with numerous problems including ocean currents and water depth, harsh weather conditions and reliability of the equipment used, accessibility of the well etc.

The present handbook shall be treated as a remarkably definitive and comprehensive reference to be used by the engineers for the design, analysis and installation of the offshore structures. The book will provide them with an expert guidance to the major processes and technologies as well as the equipment comprising modern offshore installations, answering all crucial questions in a very clear language and covering the full spectrum of subjects.

The content is based on the thirty years of practical experience of the authors. We can say that all important issues of the floating and fixed offshore platforms have been addressed in a single volume providing an excellent overview of the subject.
