About the Author

Saeid Mokhatab is one of the most instantly recognizable names in the natural gas industry with dedicated technical expertise in the midstream sector. He has been on the international advisory board of a number of petroleum/energy consulting firms around the world and has been actively involved in several large scale gas-field development projects, concentrating on design, precommissioning and startup of processing plants. He has over 200 technical publications to his credit, including two reference books. He founded the Elsevier peer-reviewed Journal of Natural Gas Science & Engineering, has held editorial positions in many prestigious journals/book publishing companies for the hydrocarbon processing industry, and served on various IGU, SPE and ASME technical committees and conferences worldwide. As a result of his work, he has received a number of international awards including the Albert Einstein Gold Medal of Honor and the Chilingar Gold Medal of Scientists Without Borders; and is listed in several international biographical directories. William A. Poe is a business consultant for Invensys Operations Management in Houston, TX, USA. He has over 30 years of experience in chemical and gas processing plants design and operations and has developed business relationships with several domestic and international gas processors, chemical plants, and gas transmission pipelines owners. His main area of focus the past two decades has been automation, multivariable predictive control (MPC), advanced process control (APC), and optimization design and implementation for the natural gas processing and treating, sulfur recovery, ammonia synthesis, methanol synthesis, liquefied natural gas, and power generation industries. Working under contracts to the Gas Research Institute, he developed new multivariable control applications in the natural gas, ammonia, and methanol industries. Poe developed APC and Optimization Master Plans for international companies such as Saudi Aramco, Statoil, and PDVSA, as well as automation and advanced process control feasibility studies for about 100 natural gas processing, power generation, ammonia, and methanol plants worldwide. He spent over a decade in natural gas processing operations and engineering experience with Shell Oil Company. Poe has project management experience with Shell Oil and GE Continental Controls with multimillion-dollar projects. He assumed the technical leadership of Continental Controls, a privately held company, through acquisition by GE. After joining GE as part of the Continental Controls acquisition, he became vice president of this division of GE, which included direction of product development, projects, technical sales support, and customer service. He has authored over 40 papers, presented at numerous technical conferences, received the GE Innovators Award in 1999 and attained the Invensys Circle of Excellence in 2011. James G. Speight is a senior fuel consultant as well as an Adjunct Professor of Chemical and Fuels Engineering at the University of Utah, USA. He is recognized internationally as an expert in the characterization, properties, and processing of conventional and synthetic fuels and as a chemist with more than 35 years of experience in thermal/process chemistry, thermodynamics, refining of petroleum, heavy oil, and tar sand bitumen, and physics of crude with emphasis on distillation, visbreaking, coking units, and oil-rock or oil catalyst interactions. Speight is currently Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Petroleum Science and Technology, Energy Sources-Part A: Recovery, Utilization, and Environmental Effects, and Energy Sources-Part B: Economics, Planning, and Policy. He is also the author/editor/compiler of more than 25 books and bibliographies related to fossil fuel processing and environmental issues. Speight was Chief Scientific Officer and then Chief Executive Officer of the Western Research Institute, Laramie, WY, USA, from 1984 to 2000. During this period he led a staff of more that 150 scientists, engineers, and technicians in developing new technology for gas processing, petroleum, shale oil, tar sand bitumen, and asphalt. Speight has considerable expertise in evaluating new technologies for patentability and commercial application. As a result of his work, he was awarded the Diploma of Honor, National Petroleum Engineering Society, for outstanding contributions to the petroleum industry in 1995 and the Gold Medal of Russian Academy of Sciences (Natural) for outstanding work in the area of petroleum science in 1996. He has also received the Specialist Invitation Program Speakers Award from NEDO (New Energy Development Organization, Government of Japan) in 1987 and again in 1996 for his contributions to coal research. In 2001, he was also awarded the Einstein Medal of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Natural) in recognition of outstanding contributions and

Reviews

"We are entering into an economic cycle where natural gas is going to play the leading role as energy source than what it played in the past century. It has been called the Gas Economy. This book intends to educate in the areas of gas transmission and processing discussing new technology in these areas. I recommend that you consider this practical book for quick reference in your day-to-day business." Jorge H. Foglietta, Director of Technology Development and Process Engineering, ABB Lummus Global Inc. - Randall Gas Technologies, USA "This is an excellent document that combines all facets of engineering within the oil and gas business from source to supply. As well as supporting our engineering design industry this work will offer a comprehensive education to our process engineers of the future." Dr John H. Hargreaves, Chief Process Engineer, KBR Production Services, Aberdeen, UK "Natural gas is in the ascendant as a green fuel of the future. Gas usage will continue to increase worldwide in the coming years. In this regard it is fitting that technical books covering gas processing and transport will be required reading for technical specialists. This highly readable book contains a mine of information on gas transmission and processing. It is recommended for the layman and the technical specialist." Dr. Satinder Purewal, Leader - Business and Leadership,Shell International Exploration and Production B.V., The Netherlands "Natural gas will not only continue to be a significant part of the energy resource for many years to come, but its use will also be increasing. This book documents the latest technology in all areas of natural gas engineering. It is a useful book for every engineer, scientist, and researcher who has ever faced the challenge of investigating natural gas gathering, processing, and transport. I recommend it highly, as a reference and textbook." Dr. Brian F. Towler, Head, Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, University of Wyoming "This book is a useful reference to have for producers, transporters, processors and commercial users. It covers all technical aspects of natural gas transmission and processing. I recommend that if you work in the natural gas area, you have this reference available." Dr. James F. Lea, Kerr McGee Professor of Petroleum Engineering, University of Oklahoma "This book covers subject areas missed by other books on natural gas engineering that have emphasized mainly the upstream aspects. The emergence of natural gas in a global market underscores the importance of transmission and processing, and I highly recommend this book as a technical resource." Dr. Christine A. Ehlig-Economides, Professor, Albert E. Stevens Endowed Chair in Petroleum Engineering, Texas A&M University "The ongoing emergence of natural gas as the premier fuel of the world economy makes this book eminently topical and useful to all professionals working along the natural gas chain from exploration and production to the midstream and downstream. It fills a considerable void." Dr. Michael J. Economides, Professor of Chemical Engineering, University of Houston
