Book Description :

Offshore oil and gas production was conducted throughout the entire 20th century, but the industry's modern importance and vibrancy did not start until the early 1970s, when the North Sea became a major producer. Since then, the expansion of the offshore oil industry has been continuous and rapid. Pipelines, and more generally long tubular structures, are major oil and gas industry tools used in exploration, drilling, production, and transmission. Installing and operating tubular structures in deep waters places unique demands on them. Technical challenges within the field have spawned significant research and development efforts in a broad range of areas. Volume I addresses problems of buckling and collapse of long inelastic cylinders under various loads encountered in the offshore arena. Several of the solutions are also directly applicable to land pipelines. The approach of Mechanics of Offshore Pipelines is problem oriented. The background of each problem and scenario are first outlined and each discussion finishes with design recommendations. * New and classical problems addressed - investigated through a combination of experiments and analysis * Each chapter deals with a specific mechanical problem that is analyzed independently * The fundamental nature of the problems makes them also applicable to other fields, including tubular components in nuclear reactors and power plants, aerospace structures, automotive and civil engineering structures, naval vehicles and structures

Book Description :

The development of oil and gas fields offshore requires specialized pipeline equipment. The structures must be strong enough to with stand the harshest environments, and ensure that production is not interrupted and remains economically feasible. However, recent events in the Gulf of Mexico have placed a new importance on maintenance and reliability. A new section; Condition Based Maintenance (CBM), introduces the subject of maintenance, written by Tian Ran Lin, Queensland University of Technology, and Yong Sun, CSIRO Earth Science and Resource Engineering. Two of the main objectives of CBM is maximizing reliability while preventing major or minor equipment malfunction and minimizing maintenance costs. In this new section, the authors deal with the multi-objective condition based maintenance optimization problem. CBM provides two major advantages: (1) an efficient approach for weighting maintenance objectives, and (2) a method for specifying physical methods for achieving those objectives. Maintenance cost and reliability objectives are calculated based on proportional hazards model and a control limit CBM replacement policy. Written primarily for engineers and management personnel working on offshore and deepwater oil and gas pipelines, this book covers the fundamentals needed to design, Install, and commission pipeline projects. This new section along with a thorough update of the existing chapters represents a 30% increase in information over the previous edition.

Book Description :

Buckle propagation is a problem unique to offshore pipelines, in which the local collapse of a locally weakened section of the pipe initiates a collapse that propagates at high speed catastrophically flattening the line by kilometers. The lowest pressure that can sustain the propagation of the collapse, the propagation pressure, is only a small fraction of the collapse pressure of the intact pipe. The large difference between these two pressures requires that pipelines be designed on the collapse pressure, and the extent of the potential catastrophic damage suffered is limited by the periodic introduction of buckle arrestors to the line. Volume 2 of the book series Mechanics of Offshore Pipelines addresses the major aspects of buckle propagation including its initiation, establishment of the propagation pressure, and the dynamics of buckle propagation. Buckle propagation under tension, in pipe-in-pipe pipeline systems, and confined buckle propagation in tubulars such as grouted casing are examined in dedicated chapters. Three chapters deal with the performance of the most commonly used buckle arrestors under both quasi-static and dynamic buckle propagation. Each of these problems is studied through experiments, analyses, and large-scale numerical simulations. The results are used to provide empirical design equations and design guidelines on how to mitigate the effects of buckle propagation. Buckle propagation and arrest approached from both fundamental and applied points of view Provides data, empirical design formulae, and design guidelines Teaches how to analyze buckle propagation and mitigate its effects through experiment and modeling Based on the 40-year research and practice of the most eminent researcher in the subject

Book Description :

Introducing a new practical approach within the field of applied mechanics developed to solve beam strength and bending problems using classical beam theory and beam modeling, this outstanding new volume offers the engineer, scientist, or student a revolutionary new approach to subsea pipeline design. Integrating use of the Mathematica program into these models and designs, the engineer can utilize this unique approach to build stronger, more efficient and less costly subsea pipelines, a very important phase of the world's energy infrastructure. Significant advances have been achieved in implementation of the applied beam theory in various engineering design technologies over the last few decades, and the implementation of this theory also takes an important place within the practical area of re-qualification and reassessment for onshore and offshore pipeline engineering. A general strategy of applying beam theory into the design procedure of subsea pipelines has been developed and already incorporated into the ISO guidelines for reliability-based limit state design of pipelines. This work is founded on these significant advances. The intention of the book is to provide the theory, research, and practical applications that can be used for educational purposes by personnel working in offshore pipeline integrity and engineering students. A must-have for the veteran engineer and student alike, this volume is an important new advancement in the energy industry, a strong link in the chain of the world's energy production.

Book Description :

[Truncated abstract] Subsea pipelines are essential structural systems to transport natural oil or gas from offshore oil wells to an onshore location. Damage along a subsea pipeline might occur because pipelines are directly and continually exposed to the hydrodynamic environment. Free spanning is a very common problem both in the design phase and during operation of pipelines. Such spans may be subjected to fatigue damage caused by direct wave and vortex induced vibrations (VIV). Therefore appropriate amount of in-service inspection, monitoring and assessment to ascertain their conditions are essential. In industry, in addition to the visual inspection by divers, there are three techniques that are normally used to identify free spans along pipelines, named side-scan sonar, multibeam echosounder and video/camera. However, as all these tools need a remotely controlled/towed vehicle to carry the inspection tools and an appropriate vessel to support this performance, this kind of inspection can only be performed at scheduled intervals, which may cause the pipelines operates under dangerous conditions. Therefore an effective and reliable method that can monitor the subsea pipeline conditions continuously will be very useful. This is the motivation of exploring and applying vibration-based methods to subsea pipeline free-span monitoring. This thesis contains four parts. In the first part, numerical simulation is performed to explore the feasibility of using vibration properties of subsea pipeline structures, and model updating technique to identify pipeline conditions. A finite element model of subsea pipeline is developed, which takes into consideration the fluid-pipe-soil interaction. Ambient excitation for marine environment is simulated based on JONSWAP spectrum. Dynamic responses of the pipeline system to the simulated ambient wave forces are calculated, which are considered as measured responses in subsequent analysis for pipeline condition monitoring and damage identification. Noise effect on dynamic response measurement is studied by considering two levels of random noises in the calculated dynamic response data. Three signal processing methods, i.e., FRF (Frequency Response Function), SSI (Stochastic Subspace Identification) and BSS (Blind Source Separation) are used to extract dynamic properties of the pipeline system. The extracted dynamic properites are used in model updating analysis to identify pipeline conditions. Results corresponding to the three data extraction methods and different levels of noise are compared. The influences of measurement noises and numerical errors of data extracrtion methods on pipeline condition monitoring results are discussed. Next, based on the initial FE model analysis, a scale model was designed and built in the laboratory with removable springs linking the polyethylene pipe and a steel frame to simulate the support of the sea bed. Three types of laboratory tests were carried out to verify the suitability and efficiency of the model-based damage identification method (particularly finite element model updating technique) using different excitation sources: the impact hammer test, the wind tunnel test and the towing tank test...

"Subsea pipelines are used for a number of purposes in the development of subsea hydrocarbon resources as shown in Figure 1.1. A pipeline system can be a single-pipe pipeline system, pipe-in-pipe or bundled system. Normally, the term of subsea flow-lines is used to describe the subsea pipelines carrying oil and gas products from the wellhead to the riser base; the riser is connected to the processing facilities (e.g. a platform or a FPSO). The subsea pipelines from the processing facilities to shore are called export pipelines, while the subsea pipelines from the platform to subsea equipment used to transfer water or chemical inhibiters are called water injection or chemical flow-lines"--
