Oil and gas assets are under constant pressure and engineers and managers need integrity management training and strategies to ensure their operations are safe. Gaining practical guidance is not trained ahead of time and learned on the job. Asset Integrity Management of Offshore and Onshore Structures delivers a critical training tool for engineers to prepare and mitigate safety risk. Starting with a transitional introductory chapter, the reference dives into integrity management approaches including codes and standards. Inspection, assessment, and repair methods are covered for offshore, FPSO, onshore and pipelines. Suggested proactive approaches and modeling risk-based inspection are also included. Supported with case studies, detailed discussions, and practical applications, Asset Integrity Management of Offshore and Onshore Structures gives oil and gas managers a reference to extend asset life, reduce costs, and minimalize impact to personnel and environment.

Key Features

  • Bridge between the theory of integrity management into oil and gas application
  • Understand the strategies and techniques to mitigate corrosion affect, assessment, inspection, and repairs from real-world examples
  • Manage a variety of assets including offshore, subsea, pipelines, and onshore


Offshore engineers, offshore managers, structural engineers, production engineers, oil and gas equipment companies, pipeline engineers
