Overview

Provides a complete treatment on two of the hottest topics in the energy sector – acid gas injection and carbon dioxide sequestration

This book provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of two techniques that are rapidly increasing in importance and usage in the natural gas and petroleum industry — acid gas injection and carbon dioxide sequestration. The author, a well-known and respected authority on both processes, presents the theory of the technology, then discusses practical applications the engineer working in the field can implement.

Both hot-button issues in the industry, these processes will help companies in the energy industry "go green," by creating a safer, cleaner environment. These techniques also create a more efficient and profitable process in the plant, cutting waste and making operations more streamlined.

This outstanding new reference includes:

  • Uses of acid gas injection, the method of choice for disposing of small quantities of acid gas

  • Coverage of technologies for working towards a zero-emission process in natural gas production

  • A practical discussion of carbon dioxide sequestration, an emerging new topic, often described as one of the possible solutions for reversing global warming

  • Problems and solutions for students at the graduate level and industry course participants
