Because natural gas is just that—a gas—it is very difficult to collect, transmit, and process, unlike liquids. You can feel, see, and handle liquids, but not gas. Due to the very bright future of this expanding industry, more books are needed on the shelves of petroleum engineers who are moving from oil to natural gas markets. Most drilling and petroleum engineers were not schooled specifically as "petroleum engineers," and this creates a dearth of knowledge and expertise in the industrial literature. This gap is usually handled in intracompany ways, through mentoring, company guidelines, and rules of thumb. This book is the "must have" information for the industry today. "Handbook of Natural Gas Transmission and Processing" gives engineers and managers complete coverage of natural gas transmission and processing in the most rapidly growing sector to the petroleum industry. The authors provide a unique discussion of new technologies that are energy efficient and environmentally appealing at the same time. It is an invaluable reference on natural gas engineering and the latest techniques for all engineers and managers moving to natural gas processing as well as those currently working on natural gas projects. It provides practicing engineers critical information on all aspects of gas gathering, processing and transmission. It is the first book that treats multiphase flow transmission in great detail. It examines natural gas energy costs and pricing with the aim of delivering on the goals of efficiency, quality and profit.
