December 2012

We finish the year off with a bumper issue of World Pipelines. Don’t miss our annual global round-up, discussing pipeline activity worldwide during 2012. There is an interesting keynote article from Baker Botts about pipeline safety regulation changes in the US – including information on PHMSA requirements, the Pipeline Safety Act of 2011 and subsequent regulations. Elsewhere in the issue, find technical articles on integrity, surveying, valves and turbomachinery, plus a massive feature on trenching – with four offshore trenching case studies and one onshore trenching equipment focus.
