The vitally important subject of process safety in the hydrocarbon industry is addressed in this book. The coverage is broad and the author has integrated the various aspects so that the book will be readily accessible to readers of diverse backgrounds. A grasp of the material requires only familiarity with physical and organic chemistry (at first-year undergraduate level) and with heat transfer and fluid flow at the same level. The text is complemented by many numerical examples with full solutions. Contents: Foreword by Dr. Donald Olander, Goodrich Corporation Preface Background to the oil and gas industry Hydrocarbon leakage and dispersion The combustion behaviour of hydrocarbons Offshore oil and gas production Physical operations on hydrocarbons and associated hazards Chemical operations on hydrocarbons and hydrocarbon derivatives Hazards associated with particular hydrocarbon products Some relevant design principles Some relevant measurement principles Toxicity hazards Safe disposal of unwanted hydrocarbon Means of obtaining hydrocarbon other than from crude oil, and related safety issues Appendix: outline of the Canvey Study Solutions to numerical problems Self-test questions Index.

Dr. J. Clifford Jones is senior lecturer in safety engineering at the University of Aberdeen with responsibility for process safety. He has extensive experience in the field of combustion.Review:
...a valuable contribution...would certainly recommend it to chemical engineering and fire engineering undergraduates or those professionals that need to develop an understanding of hydrocarbon process safety...Fire Safety Journal ...the text should form a compulsory part of the graduate process engineer's library...The great value of Hydrocarbon Process Safety is to provide the student and the practising chemical engineer with important guidelines...a valuable addition to the library...
