Fundamentals of Natural Gas Processing
by Arthur J. Kidnay

Fundamentals of Natural Gas Processing explores the natural gas industry from the wellhead to the marketplace.

Features:

  • Provides an overview of the natural gas industry with emphasis on processes
  • Discusses advantages, limitations, and ranges of applicability of major plant processes
  • Describes ways to calculate initial cost estimates of selected processes within a concise overview of plant economics
  • Examines the methods involved in the growing field of natural gas liquefaction
  • Includes a glossary of terminology as well as an extensive appendix on thermophysical properties
