"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.
This 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.
The LNG supply chain extends from upstream production, LNG production plant, shipping, storage, and regasification to supply to sales gas pipelines and power plant users.
LNG production is capital intensive and the recent costs have deterred the commitment of most investors, and any future LNG production plant owners must reevaluate the current technologies for a -fit-for-purpose"" design to reduce the life cycle costs."
