From the Book - Preface: This manual has been compiled to provide time frames, labor crews and equipment spreads to assist the estimator in capsulizing an estimate for the installation of cross-country pipelines, marshland pipelines, nearshore and surf zone pipelines, submerged pipelines, wharfs, jetties, dock facilities, single-point morring terminals, offshore drilling and production platforms and equipment and appurtenances installed thereon. The time frames and labor and equipment spreads which appear throughout this manual are the result of many time and method studies conducted under varied conditions and at locations throughout the world; these time frames and labor and equipment spreads reflect a complete, unbiased view of all operations involved. When one is engaged in compiling an estimate from any information furnished by others, as is the case with this manual, he should view it in an objective light, giving due consideration to the nature of the project at hand and evaluating all items that may affect the productivity of labor and all other elements involved.

The book presents a comprehensive, yet concise analysis of groundwater occurrence, its development, technology involved in exploration, extraction, and its economical usage.The book makes use of minimum technical jargon, while explaining the basics of drilling, types of wells, their maintenance, development and testing, and selection of pumps. It discusses the causes for wells failing, methods of diagnosis and the pre-emptive and remedial measures, water transmission, composition, and purification. Unlike other natural resources, groundwater is replenished by rainfall. Nevertheless those who depend on groundwater either for industrial or agricultural sustenance should be responsive to certain factors that are significant to the long-term well-being of the water source. Important are: Whether the wells are being over-pumped, or under-pumped; the quantity and cost of water being drawn, whether there is sufficient water underground with optimum replenishment, and systems installed are compatible to the particular hydrological situation and similar such factors. The book attempts, in simplistic language, to link the gap between theory and practice; between the principles of groundwater as a natural science and its application technology. There are a number of pre-calculated tables that serve as a handy reference for Consultants, Drillers and Engineers who deal with groundwater on a day-to-day basis.

Petroleum refiners must face billion-dollar investments in equipment in order to meet ever-changing environmental requirements. Because the design and construction of new processing units entail several years’ lead time, refiners are reluctant to commit these dollars for equipment that may no longer meet certain conditions when the units come on stream. Written by experts with both academic and professional experience in refinery operation, design, and evaluation, Petroleum Refining Technology and Economics, Fifth Edition is an essential textbook for students and a vital resource for engineers. This latest edition of a bestselling text provides updated data and addresses changes in refinery feedstock, product distribution, and processing requirements resulting from federal and state legislation. Providing a detailed overview of today’s integrated fuels refinery, the book discusses each major refining process as they relate to topics such as feedstock preparation, operating costs, catalysts, yields, finished product properties, and economics. It also contains end-of-chapter problems and an ongoing case study.
