"We are entering into an economic cycle where natural gas is going to play the leading role as energy source than what it played in the past century. It has been called the Gas Economy. This book intends to educate in the areas of gas transmission and processing discussing new technology in these areas. I recommend that you consider this practical book for quick reference in your day-to-day business." Jorge H. Foglietta, Director of Technology Development and Process Engineering, ABB Lummus Global Inc. – Randall Gas Technologies, USA "This is an excellent document that combines all facets of engineering within the oil and 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, KBR Production Services, Aberdeen, UK "Natural gas is in the ascendant as a green fuel of the future. Gas usage will continue to increase worldwide in the coming years. In this regard it is fitting that technical books covering gas processing and transport will be required reading for technical specialists. This highly readable book contains a mine of information on gas transmission and processing. It is recommended for the layman and the technical specialist." Dr. Satinder Purewal, Leader - Business and Leadership,Shell International Exploration and Production B.V., The Netherlands "Natural 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 inves
