Natural gas use is growing rapidly worldwide. There are several reasons the first being that natural gas requires less processing than oil for heating and energy operations. The second is that gas is more environmentally friendly, and finally gas can be transported via a pipeline or in a liquified form as LNG. Because of the demands of this expanding industry, petroleum engineers need a book focusing on the natural gas market, guiding them step-by-step by case studies and practical approaches.
The book, Process Modeling, Control and Optimization in the Gas Processing Industry is essential for maximizing process efficiency and profitability in the gas industry. It covers only the critical concepts required to efficiently process and move natural gas from its sources to the consumer. Emphasis is placed on the applications of simulation and optimization to solve real-world problems. Readers are able to use this information to develop and implement advanced control strategies to achieve objectives of throughput maximization, energy minimization, and improved quality control.
* Timely book that addresses the enormous industry shift from oil to natural gas
* Assumes reader knowledge of fundamentals and focuses strictly on process control applications
* Case Studies provide examples of best practice in the field
William A. Poe is a Business Consultant for Invensys Process Systems - Global Solutions in Houston, Texas, USA. He has over 24 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 decade and a half 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 25 papers, presented at numerous technical conferences, and received the GE Innovators Award in 1999.
Saeid Mokhatab is a member of the International Advisory Board for EMERTEC Research and Development Ltd, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, as well as an advisor of natural gas engineering research projects in the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Department of the University of Wyoming, USA. His expertise lies in the area of the hydraulic design and engineering of multiphase flow transmission pipelines and natural gas processing plants. Previously, he worked as a researcher in Cranfield University at England, working on TMF3 Consortium Sub-Project VII: Flexible Risers. He has participated as a flow assurance consultant and the engineering manager in various domestic and international gas-engineering projects, and has published more than 50 academic and industrial oriented papers, reports, and books. He is also a coauthor of forthcoming Elseviers handbook of Flow Assurance in Oil and Gas Production.
