This well-balanced handbook is the only book of its kind, covering all aspects of natural gas transmission and processing in more details. I believe it will serve as a valuable desk reference for practicing gas engineers and technologists, and as a text for graduate students in the gas engineering curriculum.
J.C. Kuo, Senior Advisor of Gas Team, Process Technology Unit, Chevron ETC, USATodays natural gas industry is evolving and the projects are technically challenging. This book is an excellent reference for all professionals, engineers and scientists working in the mid-stream and down-stream sectors of natural gas industry. It fills a considerable void.
John Y. Mak, Senior Fellow and Director of Process Engineering, Fluor, USA This high quality, comprehensive book gives an accurate picture of where the natural gas transmission and processing industry stands today, as well as indicating some relatively new technologies that could become important in the future. I recommend this book for any professional gas processing engineer and technologist.
Dave Messersmith, Manager of LNG Technology and Services Group, Bechtel, USAThis is a valuable handbook to both the experienced engineer and the graduate just commencing in natural gas engineering. It provides practical advice for design and operation based on sound engineering principles and established techniques as well as introducing process solutions based on new and emerging technologies.
Adrian Finn, Technology Manager, Costain Energy & Process, UKThis book addresses the advanced technologies, new issues and challenges related to natural gas transmission and processing, which have not been addressed in depth in any existing books. The format of the book makes it a particularly valuable reference work for all engineers in the natural gas business as well as a textbook for students in petroleum and chemical engineering curricula and in the training departments of a large group of companies.
Dr. Douglas G. Elliot, President and Chief Operating Officer, IPSI LLC, USAThis is an excellent document that combines all facets of engineering within the natural gas business from source to supply. As well as supporting our engineering design industry, this work will offer a comprehensive education to our process engineers of the future.
Dr. John H. Hargreaves, Chief Process Engineer, Wood Group PSN, UKThis book comes at a critical time when many nations are shifting to an increasingly higher percentage of natural gas use within their range of energy sources. Giving the reader a comprehensive insight into the natural gas transmission and processing industry, this book will prove invaluable in orienting the newcomer and extending the scope of understanding of the
Dr. Lorenzo Micucci, Manager of Technology and R&D, Siirtec Nigi, ItalyAt the dawn of the Information Age, there has been a surge in so-called Handbooks, all claiming to have the 'right' answer. Unfortunately, with the superflux of information, it is becoming increasing difficulty, if not impossible, to come up with the 'right' answer to any problem. This handbook breaks out of the conventional mode, and prepares readers with fundamentals so that they can discover for themselves the answer that would best serve their purpose. This approach is unique and is very timely. This book has the potential of creating a standard for handbook for other engineering fields.
Dr. M.R. Islam, Professor of Petroleum Engineering, Dalhousie University, CanadaFor natural gas professionals working with transmission and processing, this book provides an excellent reference that covers a wide range of topics. From a brief chapter on basic fundamentals to advance topics such as plant project management and environmental aspects of the business, this book provides a comprehensive look at post-production aspects of natural gas industry. I believe this book will be a great companion for active natural gas professionals.
Dr. Shahab D. Mohaghegh, Professor of Petroleum & Natural Gas Engineering, West Virginia University, USANatural gas will not only continue to be a significant part of the energy resource for many years to come, but its use will also be increasing. This book documents the latest technology in all areas of natural gas engineering. It is a useful book for every engineer, scientist, and researcher who has ever faced the challenge of investigating natural gas gathering, processing, and transport. I recommend it highly, as a reference and textbook.
