A Primer of Offshore Operations
This book is for people who don't know very much about offshore oil and gas operations and who want to know more. It was written in simple language and any technical terms that were used were defined in the text and in the glossary. The text does more than simply describe an operation or method; it also tells why such an operation or method is necessary. Even though the offshore oil industry came of age in the United States, this book is not confined to this country. Since operations are ongoing in the North Sea, Southeast Asia, Africa, South America, China, and the Arctic, the text covers techniques and equipment utilized the world over. In cases where the text fives dimensions, it gives both English and SI metric measurements.
