Preface

The objective of this work is to present to the engineering reader information a


bout the practical professional aspects of Engineering involvement within Oil &
Energy Industrial facilities promotion. These industries produce various types o
f gases in condensed form for the transportation through the pipelines for suppl
y to the real consumer or the end user and also various petrochemical products a
s well as many bye products are produced. All disciplinary budding working engin
eers in the industry & particularly in the execution field shall be benefited by
the information provided. The contents have been extracted from the practical e
xperience earned in the field.
A brief on the description of the terms used has been included. It has been note
d that experiences attained are usually not recorded on documents for the benefi
t of the incoming young engineers to learn from the seniorsâ experience resulting ad
versely on that these budding engineers depend solely on their individuals exclu
sive learning in the field based on the university learning which is not virtual
ly adequate for a fast progress achievement. Therefore, to fulfill the requireme
nt to extend the learned resources to the incoming new engineers, this small wor
k in hard copy is presented to help those who intend to know in advance about an
overall perspective of building new facilities or extending the existing one to
further development.
The information has been given in text only. No photo or diagram could be incorp
orated as under the obligations of the contracts such information should not be
revealed for a definite number of years from the contract commencement day to ma
intain the secrecy conduct clause on various contracts. Only certain google eart
h images included to assist the reader. This work may not provide with the in-de
pth specialized subjective knowledge but definitely, illumine with an idea how t
he procedures move in the field which knowledge cannot be drawn from the univers
ity.
This book might prove beneficial for the candidates aspiring to become Certified
Professional Engineers within the purview of EMF (Engineers Mobility Forum, the
Bharat represebtation by The Institution Of Engineers India). Of course, the co
ntents of the book are very boring but practical. The contents vary in nature in
cluding the usual procedures of the EPC nature of contracts involving in general
types of Industrial jobs carried out in the industry. Also, included certain st
atements & reporting procedures as well as contract matters generally adopted. I
t is uncommon among engineers to be used to reading this type of work but practi
cally, it is necessary. It is hoped that reader shall enjoy the boring work.
I am grateful to Cdr Eng A K Poothia, The Secretary & Director general of The In
stitution of Engineers (India) for commending this work & extending most useful
advise for which attempts were made to incorporate to some extent. Attempts shal
l continue to incorporate the readersâ suggestions as much as practically feasible.
