Before Ali Ghalambor decided to co-write Offshore Pipelines, there was a marked dearth in the academic literature that was available for this area of study. As a matter of fact, there were very few books about offshore petroleum engineering, and no one dared to tackle the challenging topic of offshore pipelines.

In recent years, there has been an increase in the use of offshore pipelines, mainly due to its safety, environmental, energy, maintenance, and reliability benefits. With this trend, the subject of offshore pipelines has become all the more important in the study of petroleum engineering.

This is the reason why the book on offshore pipelines written by Ali Ghalambor, Boyun Guo, and Shanhong Song has been regarded as an edgy and up-to-date contribution to the study of petroleum engineering. First published in 2005, it has proven to be one of the most useful references for engineers and developers who are accorded the challenging task of bringing oil and gas onshore.

Through this book, pipeline design engineers will learn about designing low-cost pipelines that allow long-term operability and safety. Moreover, pipeline operation engineers and management personnel will be able to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills in the cost-effective operation of pipeline systems.

The book also contains a section that deals with deepwater pipelining, a relatively new technology that has been developed in the past ten years and is swiftly increasing in practical use.
