As the cleanest source of fossil energy with the most advantageous CO2 footprint, natural gas continues to increase its share in the global energy market. This book provides state-of-the-art contributions in the area of gas processing. Special emphasis is given to Liquified Natural Gas (LNG); the book also covers the following gas processing applications in parallel sessions:

  • Natural Gas processing and treatment
  • Gas To Power and water
  • Gas To Liquid (GTL)
  • Gas To Petrochemicals, including olefins, ammonia and methanol

Key Features

  • Provides a state-of-the-art review of gas processing technologies
  • Covers design, operating tools, and methodologies
  • Includes case studies and practical applications


process engineers and technology developers in the oil and gas industry; researchers in the field of energy, chemical engineering, petroleum engineering, mechanical engineering
