Gas Usage and Value addresses issues concerned with the development and sale of natural gas resources. The text overviews the world's gas reserves and outlines the principal issues concerning composition and the cost of producing well head gas to make a specification product or extract particular components; operation and cost of gas plants; and the cost of transporting the gas to an end-user. Separate chapters deal with the use of gas in the downstream process industries. Gas usages for various technologies are described and alternatives are critically compared. Costs for the downstream process industries are described on a self-consistent basis that allows comparison of alternatives. Estimates are presented for each technology on the cost of production as the gas price changes. Case studies are included to illustrate variations or specific points of relevance. Reader benefits: ac Provides a handbook for performing cost-benefit estimates for gas usage and for pricing gas to the downstream processor ac Describes all of the principal uses of gas, the quantity and quality of gas required, descriptions of the major issues, and key players for specific technologies ac Can be used as a teaching text for gas development and usage.The Technology and Economics of Natural Gas Use in the Process Industries Duncan Seddon ...
