Handbook of Natural Gas Transmission and Processing, 2nd Edition gives engineers and managers complete coverage of natural gas transmission and processing in the most rapidly growing sector to the petroleum industry. Emphasizing the practical aspects of natural gas production over the theoretical, the authors provide a unique discussion of new technologies that are energy efficient and environmentally appealing at the same time.
The 2nd edition includes three new chapters on dynamics of process controls, Process Modeling and Simulation and Optimal Design of Gas Processing Plants. Both chapter 7 (Acid Gas Treating) and Chapter 9 (Natural Gas Dehydration) is heavily revised. This represents a 30% increase in material over the previous edition which was publishing in 2005.
Process Control, Modeling and Optimization are often poorly understood areas for many gas transmitters and processors yet provide much value through greater reliability and cost effectiveness of natural gas operations. There is much information on control, modeling and optimization theory, but putting these theories into practice in the context of designing and operating gas plants is lacking. This chapter will provide information that will enable better decisions on the purpose of controls, present specific, proven strategies for the control of equipment found in gas transmission and processing operations.
Process modeling techniques will be presented for both design and performance monitoring of gas processes and equipment. This chapter will also cover considerations during the design of a gas processing plant to decrease construction costs and total cost of ownership while addressing reliability and availability. This content should be of interest to engineering personnel tasked with designing gas processes as well as owners who operate the plants.
In addition the 2nd edition includes a new chapter on Optimal Design of Gas Processing Plants. This chapter covers considerations during the design of a gas processing plant. The objective of this chapter is to provide Plant designers and owners/operators methods to decrease construction costs and total cost of ownership while addressing reliability and availability.
