A comprehensive overview of managing and assessing safety and functionality of ageing offshore structures and pipelines
A significant proportion, estimated at over 50%, of the worldwide infrastructure of offshore structures is in a life extension phase and is vulnerable to ageing processes. This book captures the central elements of the management of ageing offshore structures in the life extension phase. The book gives an overview of: the relevant ageing processes and hazards; how ageing processes are managed through the life cycle, including an overview of structural integrity management; how an engineer should go about assessing a structure that is to be operated beyond its original design life, and how ageing can be mitigated for safe and effective continued operation.
- Provides an understanding of ageing processes and how these can be mitigated.
- Applies engineering methods to ensure that existing structures can be operated longer rather than decommissioned unduly prematurely.
- Helps engineers performing these tasks in both evaluating the existing structures and maintaining ageing structures in a safe manner.
The book gives an updated summary of current practice and research on the topic of the management of ageing structures and pipelines in the life extension phase but also meets the needs of structural engineering students and practicing offshore and structural engineers in oil & gas and engineering companies. In addition, it should be of value to regulators of the offshore industry.
