Published in 2006 this book about natural gas is already partially outdated in January 2012, due to the disruptive development of shale gas in the United States.

Format: Hardcover
A while back, a project at work with a global tilt having to do with the natural gas (NG) supply chain crossed my desk, and I was in desperate need of a good reference to make some sense of it. By chance, I happened upon Chandra's Fundamentals of Natural Gas. Since the project had to do with the role of international liquefied natural gas (LNG) within the context of a supply-side NG supply chain, this book really fit the bill- especially when it came to discussing all of the upstream operations, such as exploration and production and the all-important liquefaction step.

This slim volume, weighing in at just over two hundred pages, contains five very focused chapters and really does live up to its title by taking an international perspective to the supply chain. The first chapter covers the basics of upstream activities- exploration and production, while the second chapter delves into the midstream- transport and storage. The third chapter provides a pretty good overview of the various uses of NG, and devotes quite a bit of space to the topics of electricity generation (in which it is making significant gains worldwide) and synthesis gas production for transportation fuels (a kind of technological backwater if you ask me). I was kind of dismayed with the third chapter because the author didn't delve deeply into the true heart and soul on NG uses- as feedstock for fertilizer and petrochemicals production. Chapters four and five really brought the international perspective to the fore, and had to do with the role of liquefied natural gas in what is rapidly becoming an increasingly interconnected, global gas market.
