Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a commercially attractive phase of the commodity that facilitates the efficient handling and transportation of natural gas around the world. The LNG industry, using technologies proven over decades of development, continues to expand its markets, diversify its supply chains and increase its share of the global natural gas trade. The Handbook of Liquefied Natural Gas is a timely book as the industry is currently developing new large sources of supply and the technologies have evolved in recent years to enable offshore infrastructure to develop and handle resources in more remote and harsher environments. It is the only book of its kind, covering the many aspects of the LNG supply chain from liquefaction to regasification by addressing the LNG industries' fundamentals and markets, as well as detailed engineering and design principles. A unique, well-documented, and forward-thinking work, this reference book provides an ideal platform for scientists, engineers, and other professionals involved in the LNG industry to gain a better understanding of the key basic and advanced topics relevant to LNG projects in operation and/or in planning and development. * Highlights the developments in the natural gas liquefaction industries and the challenges in meeting environmental regulations * Provides guidelines in utilizing the full potential of LNG assets* Offers advices on LNG plant design and operation based on proven practices and design experience* Emphasizes technology selection and innovation with focus on a "fit-for-purpose design * Updates code and regulation, safety, and security requirements for LNG applications

Summary: "This book is a great primer on all aspects of the LNG Industry. It contains the key information we all search for in a single location and it does an excellent job of highlighting the key considerations that must be taken into account for any LNG project in development."-- Tom Phalen, Vice President of Upstream Project Operations, Fluor, USA "As well as covering some topics rarely discussed and hard to find in the literature, the complex elements of the LNG industry are fully addressed in a straightforward fashion that makes the book appealing to all parties who are involved in the global LNG business."-- Philip Hunter, Senior LNG Consultant, Bechtel, UK "This is the first book which has filled all the gaps in the treatment of complete LNG supply chain from conceptual to commissioning and beyond. I will highly recommend it as a textbook for any Natural Gas graduate degree program anywhere."-- Dr. Suresh C. Sharma, Professor and Director of Natural Gas Engineering and Management, University of Oklahoma, USA "This comprehensive handbook provides practical guidance for all professionals in the LNG industry while maintaining as much rigor as possible. I believe academic institutions that have courses in natural gas engineering should consider this handbook as a textbook."-- Dr. Kenneth R. Hall, Professor of Chemical Engineering, Texas A&M University, USA "This book will be a welcome addition to libraries for anyone in the LNG Business from commercial, technical or operational. Even a brief review of the Table of Contents leaves one with a WOW and wondering where to start as it covers all the areas that one would want to either review or dive into something new. I highly recommend this valuable resource." -- David Messersmith, Bechtel Fellow and Manager of LNG Technology Group, Bechtel OG&C, USA "This well-balanced handbook is the only book of its kind, covering all aspects of the LNG supply chain in more detail. I highly recommend it as an excellent reference for all professionals, engineers, and scientists working in the LNG industry, and as a textbook for graduate students in the gas engineering curriculum." -- Dr. Brian F. Towler, Professor of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering and CEAS Fellow for Hydrocarbon Energy Resources, University of Wyoming, USA "This book is an important contribution to the professional literature in the crucial area of the emerging energy scene, offering a complete coverage of key topics in the LNG supply chain. The complete, accurate, and easy-to-use description of issues is also extended to cross-cut controversial topics such as LNG safety. The book provides an excellent access to a number of design guidelines and operating procedures, which makes it a standalone reference for LNG industry professionals and a state-of-theart textbook for graduate programs on the subject." -- Dr. Valerio Cozzani, Professor of Chemical Engineering and Director of Post-Graduate Program on Oil & Gas Process Design, University of Bologna, Italy "It is the first book on LNG supply chain management and gives an accurate picture of where the LNG industry stands today. This high-quality, comprehensive book provides a better understanding of LNG plant design and operational considerations and covers subject areas missed by other references in these areas. I believe it is a valuable addition to the literature and will serve as a desk reference for practicing engineers and technologists, and as an excellent source of teaching and learning in undergraduate and graduate programs on the subject area." -- Dr. Faisal Khan, Professor and Vale Research Chair of Safety and Risk Engineering Memorial University, Canada "Given the fact that LNG is the fastest growing energy carrier in the world and the trend is toward a wider range of applications for LNG technologies, a handbook like this one covering the entire LNG supply chain with issues of design, operation, Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0124045855
