Newest Publication: Encyclopedic Dictionary of Pipeline Integrity

Recently, controversy in the pipeline sector has been heightened by the Keystone and Northern Gateway Pipeline projects. The Encyclopedic Dictionary of Pipeline Integrity provides a common vocabulary for the most important aspects of pipeline construction, operations and maintenance. It is an essential guide to everyone involved in the industry and those affected by pipeline projects.

Co-author, Reena Sahney states, “Our current reliance on fossil fuels is a reality and the transport of these materials is a necessity. To discuss how we can ensure pipelines remain the safest ways of transporting oil and gas, we need to build a definitive vocabulary and a strong dialogue between everyone involved”.

The Encyclopedic Dictionary of Pipeline Integrity is a reference guide to the broad range of topics that fall under the umbrella of "pipeline integrity." It is a compilation of the common terms, concepts, technologies and methods that one is likely to encounter in study, research or practice in this specialized field. The definitions and explanations have been written in language accessible to the non-specialist, involving simplification of often complex concepts, so that the user may get a quick overview of a topic or term and understand perhaps "what questions to ask next."

The relationships between technical concepts are clarified with hundreds of cross-references throughout the book. The 1000 entries are well illustrated with 200 drawings, diagrams, charts and tables and 150 literature citations making the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Pipeline Integrity a practical and often used companion to anyone involved in the pipeline industry.
