Thermal Insulation Handbook for the Oil and Gas Industries addresses relative design, materials, procedures, and standard installation necessities for various oil and gas infrastructure such as pipelines, subsea equipment, vessels, and tanks. With the continued increase in available natural gas ready to export — especially LNG — and the definition of "deepwater" changing every year, an understanding of thermal insulation is more critical than ever. This one-of-a-kind handbook helps oil and gas engineers ensure that their products are exporting safely and that the equipment's integrity is protected. Topics include: Design considerations and component selection, including newer materials such as cellular glass Methods to properly install the insulation material and notable inspection and safety considerations in accordance with applicable US and international standards, specifically designed for the oil and gas industry Calculations to make sure that every scenario is considered and requirements for size, composition, and packaging are met effectively Understand all appropriate, new and existing, insulation material properties as well as installation requirements Gain practical knowledge on factors affecting insulation efficiency, rules of thumb, and links to real-world case studies Maximize flow assurance safely and economically with critical calculations provided

Our dependence on fossil fuels is at an all-time high and for economic and environmental reasons it is vitally important that we save energy and reduce our carbon footprint. This book is essential reading for all those homeowners who wish to insulate their properties effectively in order to save energy, permanently reduce fuel bills and increase the comfort of their homes. The author emphasizes the 'do-it-yourself' elements of house insulation and provides readers with information to take the practical steps that will make them significant financial savings. In this book, the author: demonstrates the opportunities for real financial savings that insulation can provide year on year; emphasizes why insulation is such a good idea and discusses the main areas of the house that lose heat, concentrating on the building fabric; describes the tools, special clothing, materials and techniques that are required for DIY house insulation; explains why refurbishments, repairs or extensions all offer the opportunity to introduce insulation into your home; examines the Building Regulations, which set the quality, best practice and safety standards for home improvements and construction work; reviews the range of insulation materials that can be used, from natural substances such as hemp and sheep's wool, to mineral insulation such as glass wool, polystyrene and phenolic foam; considers the DIY opportunities to reduce the heat lost through external walls and through floors and roofs; demonstrates how heat is lost through draughts and ventilation and suggests some DIY jobs to minimize this; discusses energy-efficient glazing and potential savings by installing double and triple, gas-filled, high-efficiency glazing systems.
