Natural Gas Liquids: A Nontechnical Guide

$95.00

Written in accessible language, Natural Gas Liquids: A Nontechnical Guide is a comprehensive overview of NGLs from production in the oil patch to consumption in the fuel and petrochemical industries. Leffler covers everything from gas plants, logistics, storage and refinery operations to the chemistry necessary to have a full understanding of the whole value chain.

"This unique "nontechnical guide" to one of the world's most critical energy commodities is welcomed with open arms.  The utilization of natural gas liquids is extremely complex, involving science, engineering, production, marketing, business, and economics aspects.  Leffler (formerly, Royal Dutch Shell), with nearly 40 years of experience in all sectors of the business, is eminently qualified to comprehensively and succinctly translate these complexities into easily understandable subjects that importantly affect people's lives.  …. Outstanding and very helpful illustrations occur throughout the book.  Five appendixes contain carefully selected, essential data.  The writing is superb: simple, direct, logical, and accessible, especially for such technical subjects." --T. L. T. Grose, Colorado School of Mines- CHOICE, April 2015
