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. New chapters on Process Controls as well as Process Modeling and SimulationNew chapter on Optimal Design of Gas Processing Plants. Heavily revised chapters for Acid Gas Treating (Chapter 7) and Natural Gas Dehydration (Chapter 9)

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.
