This comprehensive review of the current status and challenges facing the midstream natural gas and shale gas production, treatment and monetization technologies, provides an international perspective of the advancement of natural gas treatments. “Natural Gas Processing from Midstream to Downstream” has the potential to benefit the shale gas monetization and conventional natural gas processing fields. 

Wiley has recently sold translation rights of Elbashir’s new book to be published, by February 2020, in both Russian and Kazakh languages. These translations will be published in print format by Delta Consulting Group LLP, Kazakhstan. Due to the recent growth of the natural gas processing industry in these areas, there is a greater demand for this book.

“Natural Gas Processing from Midstream to Downstream” is the second contribution of TEES Gas & Fuels Research Center in the area of natural energy and gas production, handling, and processing. The book is also one of three published books written by Elbashir. His other two books are titled, “The Water-Food-Energy Nexus: Processes, Technologies, and Challenges” and “Fundamentals and Design of Supercritical Fluids Fischer Tropsch.”
