The books we offer fall into two categories. The fist category is to do with the process industries and with process safety, both onshore and offshore. These books are published by Elsevier.
The second category contains books to do with climate change and ‘Net Zero’ programs.
Process Risk and Reliability Management provides comprehensive and practical guidance for the development and implementation of process safety management (PSM) programs. It covers design and operations. It shows how to improve not only safety but also reliability, environmental performance, quality and profitability. Techniques and principles are illustrated with numerous examples, chemical plants, refineries, transportation, pipelines, and offshore oil and gas.
Plant Design and Operations provides practical guidance to do with the design, operation, and maintenance of process and energy facilities. The book is based on years of hands-on experience gathered during the design and operation of a wide range of facilities in many different types of industry including chemicals, refining, offshore oil and gas, and pipelines. The book helps managers, engineers, operators, and maintenance specialists with highly practical advice and guidance that can be used right away in working situations.
The production of offshore oil and gas creates many hazards. The potential for fires and explosions is always present, weather conditions can be harsh, produced gas can contain the highly toxic hydrogen sulfide (H2S), the rigs and platforms are crowded with equipment and machinery, and - if there is an accident - there are few places to which to escape. Moreover, help is a long way away.
In order to keep these facilities safe, and to protect the environment, companies develop and implement comprehensive Safety Management Systems. This book, Offshore Safety Management, describes how such systems are developed and implemented.
Net Zero Books
< This book is not yet published. The material provided here is to do with the current draft version. >
Many companies have stated that they are aiming for a Net Zero goal, i.e., they plan to have no greenhouse gas emissions within a certain time frame — the year 2050 is often selected as the target date. This book, Net Zero by 2050: Technology for a Changing Climate, describes the technologies that can be used to help achieve a net zero goal.
< This book is still under development. The material provided here is to do with the current draft version. >
This book is addressed to people of faith who are concerned about what we call the ‘Age of Limits’ — including climate change, resource depletion, biosphere destruction and population overshoot.
