Handbook of Natural Gas Transmission and Processing

By Saeid Mokhatab William A. Poe James G. Speight

Summary: 
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.
