Corrosion is something generally accepted by all participants of the offshore industry as the critically important issue. This report is mainly dealing with the technical developments of the top-level corrosion strategy specifically worked out for all topside processing facilities located offshore.

The associated project has been originally conceived as a fundamental and route study conducted to establish the basic requirements relating to the assessment/management of the corrosion risks related to the production of the oilfields and equipment used for the transportation of the oil. The underlying objective throughout this work was proper identification of requirements for the guidelines combining the best industry practices from the HSE, corrosion and also the asset integrity management.

The approach adopted tasks consider the relevant offshore regulations together with the risk control systems. The main summary of this work was that development of the corrosion risk guidelines was quite feasible and would definitely be welcomed by the offshore industry. Corrosion itself is a serious life-limiting factor causing the deterioration of the offshore structures by general wastage and pitting/cracking leading directly to the loss of containment of the processing fluids...

The control valves are considered vital components of the modern manufacturing, and their significance importance is constantly increasing. It is very important to perform proper selection and maintenance of the control valves in order to get the safety, efficiency, ecology and profitability increased and maintained at high level. The present volume shall serve as a primary reference source since the time of the original printing several decades back.

And this fourth release of the book is presenting the vital technical information related to the performance of these valves and the recent developments. The first chapter offers a brief introduction to the valves, providing the commonly used definitions for the applied terminology. The second chapter is developing the topic of the valve performance, while the third chapter is covering the control valves together with the types of actuators. The following chapter provides the descriptions of the analog positioners and digital controllers, boosters and some other accessories, while the fifth chapter contains a concise yet truly comprehensive guidance to the selection of the best valves for the particular applications.

The remaining chapters provide the required information about the desuperheaters and bypass systems, installation and maintenance procedures to be followed, recognized standards and agencies entitled to approve the design and construction of the control valves, piping reference data, common conversions and engineering reference data tables. The volume shall be used as the reference book and also as a textbook...

The ship disasters that occurred in the past all serve as reminders to the professionals of the maritime industry of the serious need for the cost effective enhancement of the safety and also as strong indicators of the gaps existing there in the stability safety of the vessels. The latter problem is actually very complex, and practically meaningful solutions to it can be feasible only in case of close international co-operation and combining the efforts made by all members of the maritime community.

A CRP, standing for the Collaborative Research Project, was launched some thirty years ago as a response to the above mentioned problem. The authors of the present publication have included selected and most valuable technical materials obtained from the first four CRP workshops. The book contains nearly fifty documents representing all currently available professional expertise related to the stability of the vessels, spanning seventeen different countries of the world.

All of the papers included in this volume have been arranged in four groups, dealing with the stability of the intact ship, stability of a damaged ship, covering the special problems of ship stability, and addressing the impact that stability has on design and operation of the vessels. Definitely must-have book for all those people who wish to be kept updated with all recent happenings in the field of contemporary naval architecture, and ship stability in particular.

This excellent publication has appeared as the result of more than twenty-year work of the author collection and preparing all required information and then presenting it in a straightforward and pretty digestible manner -  this all has eventually made this volume very popular among the construction engineers. The present third release of the title continues to serve as one of the most authoritative and modern guides in the field of the offshore construction.

The content of the volume is based on the huge professional experience of Ben Gerwick, the author, and is also incorporating the technical information that has been already published in the several relevant sources. It has been significantly expanded and duly updated in order to reflect all recently introduced methods and materials, as well as technologies. The author has also covered the new information about such important and practical topics as the liquefaction of the loose sediments, high-performance steel, and even the damage occurring as a result of the terroristic attacks and sabotage.

The book is featuring a remarkably comprehensive coverage of the liquid natural gas transportation terminals and offshore wind-and-wave energy producing structures. The way of explanation is very clear and concise making the material easily accessible to everyone and allowing readers to successfully implement the principles that can bring their offshore and marine technical projects to life.
