Underwater Technology: Offshore Petroleum covers the proceedings of the Underwater Technology Conference. The book discusses the development of safe and economic underwater operations and systems for underwater petroleum production. The text is comprised of 20 chapters, which are divided into four parts according to the areas of concern they tackle. Part 1 concerns itself with subsea production systems, and Part 2 tackles the operations system. Part 3 covers topics relating to inspection, reliability, and control, while Part 4 discusses testing. The book will be of great interest to professionals and researchers concerned with the development of underwater petroleum production.
