This book has been prepared for engineering studentrs, graduate engineers, and geologists who desire to practice in the natural gas industry. It treats natural gas in its carious stages, from occurrence in the earthen reservoir through production with or without condensate and/or crude oil. treatment of natural gas on the way to the fuel market and the warehousing of gas in underground storage reservoirs are cosidered as part of the delivery system. Provides a comprehensive treatment of natural gas engineering, covering most operations of the gas engineering. It is appropriate for courses in natural gas engineering, advanced reservoir engineering and petroleum engineering offered in departments of chemical engineering.
