About the Author

Professor Andrew Palmer is the Jafar Research Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Cambridge University, England. He is also Visiting Professor of Engineering at Harvard University, USA, in 2002-2003. Professor Palmer is a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers. He has been engaged in marine pipeline engineering for 31 years, and has taken a leading part in many pipeline projects in the North Sea, the Middle East, Canada and the Far East. He is the author of more than 150 published papers on pipeline engineering, structures and geotechnics, and of a book on structural mechanics
Dr. Roger King has over 30 years experience of corrosion in the oil and gas, civil and nuclear industries. He has specialist knowledge of sweet and sour corrosion and its prevention by chemical inhibition, monitoring of corrosion, microbiological corrosion and the design of efficient cathodic protection systems for flowlines, structures and seabed installations. He has been an independent consultant since September 1989 and prior to this was a founder member of the Corrosion and Protection Centre Industrial Service (CAPCIS) at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST).
