Troubleshooting Natural Gas Processing encompasses wellhead production problems as well as gas treating, dehydration, compression, and transmission. The book recounts the trials and tribulations of moving gas from the wellhead to the common carrier pipeline from both a technical and personal viewpoint. Each chapter describes the operating principles and troubleshooting techniques of a particular process step in the context of the time and place the problem was first encountered.

Troubleshooting sulphur recovery, anime treating, and light hydrocarbon distillation techniques are based on the author's many years of experience in petroleum refineries and process plants. Norm Lieberman's approach is to attack problems at the most practical level possible.
