The GPSA Engineering Data Book assembles, in a single compilation, basic design information together with data and procedures that can be used by field and plant engineers to determine operating and design parameters. It is also intended as an aid to design engineers who, in spite of increasing availability of computer routines and other sophisticated design methods, require a general reference work as a guide to accepted engineering practice for estimating, feasibility studies, preliminary design and for making on-site operating decisions.
The book has been compiled by a joint editorial committee composed of technical specialists from both GPSA (suppliers) and GPA Midstream (operators) company representatives. This committee, known as the GPSA Editorial Review Board, continually reviews and revises the manual. Periodic revisions are issued to holders of record to keep the manual up to date with technology and industry practices.
