Product Reviews

  1. Best reference for professionas and students working in the downstream oil and gas sector 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2015

    It is one of the very few books which covers the theory, simulation and real field aspects and fundamentals in a very organized way. Though the book length is minimal compared to other available well known books on the same, Mr. Nag has tried the best fit.

    Distillation- Fractionation is also very thoroughly covered.
