Oil and gas production handbook

    This handbook has been compiled for readers with an interest in the oil and gas production industry. It is an overview of the main processes and equipment. When we searched for a suitable introduction to be used for new engineers, I discovered that much of the equipment is described in standards, equipment manuals and project documentation. But little material was found to quickly give the reader an overview of the entire upstream area, whilst still preserving enough detail to let the engineer have an appreciation of the main characteristics and design issues.

    This book is by no means a complete description on the detailed design of any part of this process, and many details have been omitted in order to summarize a vast subject. I have included some comments on the control issues, since that is part of my own background. For the same reason, the descriptions will be somewhat biased toward the offshore installations.
