CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Fundamentals of Natural Gas Processing explores the natural gas industry from
the wellhead to the marketplace. It compiles information from the open
literature, meeting proceedings, and experts to accurately depict the state of
gas processing technology today and highlight technologies that could become
important in the future.
This book covers advantages, limitations, and ranges of applicability of major
gas plant processes to provide a sound understanding from system fundamentals
to selection, operation, and integration into the overall gas plant. It also
describes the major operations involved in bringing the gas to the plant,
information not usually discussed in most gas processing books. Comprehensive
chapters cover field operations, inlet receiving, compression, dehydration,
hydrocarbon recovery, nitrogen rejection, liquids processing, sulfur recovery,
and the increasingly popular liquefied natural gas industry, focusing on
liquefaction, storage, and transportation. The book also discusses plant
economics, offering ways to make initial cost estimates of selected processes
and determine capital costs of gas processing facilities.
The descriptive approach in Fundamentals of Natural Gas Processing makes this
comprehensive text and reference well suited for both technical and
non-technical personnel in the industry including chemical or mechanical
engineers, plant engineers, students, and those who are new to the field.
