    Posted by Ranadeb Ray on 2nd Oct 2022

    Dear Sir, Please note that I have purchased the subject book and am still reading it. It has helped me in my current ongoing studies - "Diploma in LNG Shipping". I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has got an interest to study and know the basics of Natural Gas and know more about alternative fuels.
