Description

Without the vast and complex pipeline system - and the technology and people who make it possible - the modern world would be a vastly different place. Despite the role that pipelines play in the functioning of the modern world, few people recognize the importance of the pipeline construction industry. Ironically, it is this industry's efficiency, creativity, and technological mastery that mask its invisible but vital role. With this book, the authors hope to bridge that gap and provide information about the pipeline industry both to those working in the industry and to anyone interested in pipeline construction. The importance and significance of pipelines is too great to ignore, and by tracing the history of the industry and illustrating the sheer physical effort involved in pipeline construction, the authors wish to bring about a greater awareness and appreciation of this essential industry.
