Preface to Offshore Oil and Gas Operations Handbook

Offshore oil and gas fields have received much attention since the first out an of-sight-land offshore platform that produced oil went on stream in 1947.

Since that time, the design and construction of offshore pipelines and platforms have continued and the technology capable of finding and producing oil in deepwater and in harsh environments around the world have seen remarkable developments.

As the industry enters a new era in technology, the offshore industry will continue to provide current and future supplies of oil and gas. This text deals with the science and technology of offshore oil and gas production.

The book contains extensive coverage of offshore operations, including a historic background of offshore operations.

The authors compare and contrast offshore operations and gas and oil properties to onshore operations throughout the text.

In addition, this book provides coverage and discussion on the environmental impact of the offshore oil and gas industry.

Specifically, worldwide advances in studies, control, and prevention of the impact of offshore crude oil and natural gas on the marine environment are addressed.

Based on currently available information, environmental requirements for discharges and seawater quality are also presented.

This book can be used as a classroom text as well as a reference book for information on subsea exploration, drilling and completing wells, development systems, fixed structures, production systems, transportation, and related environmental issues.
