Contents:
LNG fundamentals. -- Gas conditioning and NGL recovery technologies. -- Natural gas liquefaction cycle enhancements and optimization. -- Dynamic simulation and optimization of LNG plants and import terminals. -- Advances and innovations in LNG industry.
Summary: Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a commercially attractive phase of the commodity that facilitates the efficient handling and transportation of natural gas around the world. The LNG industry, using technologies proven over decades of development, continues to expand its markets, diversify its supply chains and increase its share of the global natural gas trade. The Handbook of Liquefied Natural Gas is a timely book as the industry is currently developing new large sources of supply and the technologies have evolved in recent years to enable offshore infrastructure to develop and handle resources in more remote and harsher environments. It is the only book of its kind, covering the many aspects of the LNG supply chain from liquefaction to regasification by addressing the LNG industries' fundamentals and markets, as well as detailed engineering and design principles. A unique, well-documented, and forward-thinking work, this reference book provides an ideal platform for scientists, engineers, and other professionals involved in the LNG industry to gain a better understanding of the key basic and advanced topics relevant to LNG projects in operation and/or in planning and development.

Author notes provided by Syndetics

Saeid Mokhatab is one of the most recognizable names in the natural gas community through his contributions to advancing the technologies in the natural gas processing industry. He has worked in a variety of senior technical and managerial positions with major petroleum companies and has been actively involved in several large-scale gas-field development projects, concentrating on design, precommissioning and startup of processing plants. He has presented numerous invited lectures on gas processing technologies, and has authored or co-authored over 200 technical publications including two well-known Elsevier''s handbooks, which are considered by many as major references to be taken into account for any gas processing/LNG project in development. He founded the world''s first peer-reviewed journal devoted to the natural gas science and engineering (published by Elsevier, USA); has held editorial positions in many scientific journals/book publishing companies for the hydrocarbon processing industry; and served as a member of technical committees for a number of professional societies and famous gas-processing conferences worldwide. As a result of his outstanding work in the natural gas industry, he has received a number of international awards/medals including the Einstein Gold Medal of Honor and Kapitsa Gold Medal of Honor; and his biography has been listed in highly prestigious directories.<br> <br> John Y. Mak is a Senior Fellow and Technical Director at Fluor, USA, and leads the technology and design development for the chemical and energy sectors at Fluor. He has been with Fluor for over 40 years and has been leading domestic and global oil and gas and refinery projects from conceptual design, feasibility study, FEED and detailed engineering to plant startup and operation. John has made significant contributions to the technologies in natural gas treating, NGL recovery, LNG liquefaction and regasification, coal gasification and carbon capture. He is the co-author of the Handbook of Liquefied Natural Gas - 1st edition (2013) published by Elsevier, USA, and has presented over 60 technical papers at the GPA (Gas Processors Association) and LRGCC (Laurance Reid Gas Conditioning Conference), China Coal Forum and other technical conferences. John is the inventor of over 80 patent and patent-pending processes, which have been used in projects at Fluor. His patented technologies have been proven to improve energy efficiency, lower emissions, and reduce cost for many of his clients. John''s current focus is on liquid recovery for shale gas projects and treating of the difficult gases, such as the high carbon dioxide and nitrogen content gases for offshore projects.<br> <br> Jaleel V. Valappil is a senior engineering specialist with Bechtel Oil, Gas & Chemicals in Houston, TX, USA. He has several years of experience in process simulation, advanced process control and optimization of various processes including LNG. Before joining Bechtel, he was a senior consulting engineer with the Advanced Control Services Group of Aspen Technology Inc., where he was responsible for developing and implementing advanced control and optimization solutions for a variety of processes. He has worked extensively on developing and deploying process simulation models for applications in design, engineering, and operations of LNG plant built by Bechtel in collaboration with Conoco Phillips over the years. He identified the benefits of lifecycle modeling for LNG plants and its use for plant design, operability/controllability studies, startup simulations and Operator Training Simulators, multi-train LNG facility debottlenecking and operational troubleshooting. Dr. Valappil has also developed and deployed Advanced Process Control technology for LNG processes, for plants in engineering stage and plants that are already operating. He has published several papers on LNG plant simulation and control in both industry conferences and journals and holds patents related to LNG plant control and turbo-machinery operation.<br> <br> David A. Wood has more than thirty years of international oil and gas experience spanning technical and commercial exploration and production operations, midstream and downstream projects, contract evaluation and senior corporate management. His early energy industry experience includes Phillips Petroleum, Amoco, Lundin Oil and other independents working around the world. For the past two decades, David has worked as an independent international consultant, researhcer, training provider and expert witness, based in the UK and working on projects across the world. He has published an extensive body of work of over 250 publications on diverse energy related topics including: the international energy markets, oil and gas fiscal designs, LNG, GTL, gas storage and gas supply. His current research interests include multi-objective optimization and applied to drilling, production and project planning. He frequently acts as an advisor and/or trainer to governments and companies on many technical and commercial aspects of the oil and gas industry through his consultancy, DWA Energy Limited. This includes providing training on enhanced oil and gas recovery (EOR/EGR) to technical organizations and financial institutions. He also has extensive editorial experience as a founding Editor of Elsevier''s Journal of Natural Gas Science and Engineering from 2008-2009 and serving as Editor-in-Chief for that journal from 2013-2016. David obtained his PhD from Imperial College, London (UK) in 1977 and worked as a post-doctoral research fellow in the Institute de Physique du Globe (Paris, France) and Birmingham Univeristy (UK).
