Petroleum Refining and Natural Gas Processing book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers/5(3). Abstract. The behavior of natural gas, whether pure methane or a mixture of volatile hydrocarbons and the nonhydrocarbons nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide, must be understood by the engineer who is designing the operating equipment for its production, processing, and transportation. Petroleum refining processes are the chemical engineering processes and other facilities used in petroleum refineries (also referred to as oil refineries) to transform crude oil into useful products such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline or petrol, kerosene, jet fuel, diesel oil and fuel oils.. Refineries are very large industrial complexes that involve many different processing units. Dr. Leffler is a prolific petroleum industry writer of magazines and books (almost all with the words in Nontechnical Language in the title.) His books (some with co-authors) include this one on refining as well as petrochemicals, deepwater exploration & production, natural gas, pipelines and oil & gas production. Details Type: Hardcover Size: 6x9.

"This natural gas processing book would be an excellent addition to the reference collection of large academic libraries at universities with programs in oil and gas area. It is well organized and indexed, so the information is readily accessible to students as well as practicing engineers and managers" -- Dr Ahmad Jamili, The University of. Offering indispensable insight from experts in the field, Fundamentals of Natural Gas Processing, Second Edition provides an introduction to the gas industry and the processes required to convert wellhead gas into valuable natural gas and hydrocarbon liquids products. The authors compile information from the literature, meeting proceedings, and their own work experiences to give an accurate /5(12). Natural-gas processing is a complex industrial process designed to clean raw natural gas by separating impurities and various non-methane hydrocarbons and fluids to produce what is known as pipeline quality dry natural gas.. Natural-gas processing begins at the well head. The composition of the raw natural gas extracted from producing wells depends on the type, depth, and location of the.

This one-of-a-kind, comprehensive handbook provides the latest industry and research advances in petroleum refining, natural gas processing, and refinery management. Over 40 scientists, experts and professionals from both academia and industry have contributed to the 33 chapters in this handbook. Petroleum Refining1 General Description The petroleum refining industry converts crude oil into more than refined products, including liquefied petroleum gas, gasoline, kerosene, aviation fuel, diesel fuel, fuel oils, lubricating oils, and feedstocks for the petrochemical industry. Petroleum refinery activities start with receipt ofFile Size: KB. Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel. In order to help reduce pollution, some companies have developed cars, trucks, and buses that can be powered by natural gas. While natural gas is sold in cubic feet, propane is sold in gallons. Propane is a major component of natural gas. Propane is also called LP gas (liquid propane gas). • Petroleum & natural gas formed from decomposing organic matter in “source rock” • Conventional –gas & liquids migrate through permeable rock toward the surface until it is stopped by some trapping mechanism • Unconventional –gas & liquids are trapped at the source rock because of extremelyFile Size: 5MB.
