Description: Many things have changed in the oil and gas industry since the first edition was published in 1992, four years after the Piper Alpha disaster.
Chief among these were the changes in the UK statutory legislation following on from Piper Alpha. Regrettably, I was too busy at the time to carry out the necessary revisions to this book, but now have the opportunity as I approach retirement to
rectify that omission.
The change of name to ‘Manual’ reflects the intention to avoid covering theoretical material covered well in university courses, but to concentrate on the practicalities and precautions necessary to create an electrical design which has all the attributes expected of it in today’s world, i.e., safe to use and maintain, robust in harsh conditions, reliable, efficient and environmentally sound.
I hope readers will appreciate the following significant content changes, which reflect the new offshore regulations, or have become necessary because of the modern information technology. These are as follows:
1. The addition of material related to the UK Offshore Safety Case and PFEER Regulations,
2. The addition of a section on offshore wind farms and their (offshore) substations,
3. The use of weblink references where possible,
4. Because of the constant revisions to standards, dates of standards are no longer quoted unless unavoidable,
5. At the time of writing, the IEE Recommendations for the Electrical and Electronic Equipment of Mobile and Fixed Offshore Installations, which has served us well over the years, is about to be superseded by a UK harmonised version of BS EN 61892, and this is reflected in the new text.
I look forward with interest as to what ‘BREXIT’ and the other global political upheavals create, but I am hopeful that the drive towards global harmonisation of standards will continue.
