Natural Gas: Operations and Transport is the second volume in a series of textbooks following Natural Gas: Exploration and Properties (first volume). This series is continued with Natural Gas: Customers and Consuming Industries (third volume) and Natural Gas: Economics and Environment (fourth volume). The aim of this series is to provide a student with the basic tools required when following the flow of gas from the reservoir to the burner tip.
The first chapter of Natural Gas: Operations and Transport deals with the chemical composition of raw gas and the contaminants contained within. Subsequently a variety of methods for gas purification and processing are discussed. Natural gas compression and pipeline transport are addressed during the following sections of this text. Alternative means of transport in connection with natural gas liquefaction and LNG shipment are highlighted in the last chapter of this second volume.
