This ``Handbook of Natural Gas Technology and Business`` is a comprehensive work covering almost all the facets of technology and business issues regarding Natural Gas which is playing a stellar role in meeting the world’s energy needs. It looks into a series of important Economic, Political and Technological factors, inter alia, the growing global demand for energy, the ongoing deregulation of gas and electricity markets, a preference for natural gas as the cleanest of all hydrocarbons, and the decline in the cost of producing and shipping Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). This comprehensive work has been divided into six distinct sections, covering the specific aspect of natural gas technology or business in great detail. This handbook goes deep into the global gas technology, policy and market issues not only looking backward, but also helping readers understanding the future as these global natural gas markets mature.
