"Combined, the two authors have had long careers with major international firms and with academic institutions in the US, Japan, and Norway. They have prepared this book for aspiring subsea engineers, a discipline described in the preface as involving the "design, analysis, construction, installation and integrity management of subsea wellheads, trees, manifolds, jumpers PLETS and PLEMs...." Coverage is logically organized, beginning with subsea production systems (field development, distribution, surveying, positioning, and foundation, cost estimation, power supply, and risk & reliability, among other topics). Subsequent coverage includes flow assurance and system engineering; structures and equipment; and umbilical, risers & flowlines. With the Gulf oil spill, the world saw the consequences of poor engineering and management; this text is important for the thorough education of future practitioners."--
