The extraction of natural gas from shale formations is no simple task and perhaps themost expensive when compared to over unconventional gases. Although, its popularityhas grown over the years, there is much to be done to make their production andprocessing more cost-effective. Brief but comprehensive, Shale Gas Production Processesbegins with an overview of the chemistry, engineering and technology of shale gas. Thisis quickly followed by self-contained chapters concerning new and evolving processtechnologies and their applications as well as environmental regulations.Written in an easy to read format, Shale Gas Production Processes will prove useful forthose scientists and engineers already engaged in fossil fuel science and technology aswell as scientists, non-scientists, engineers, and non-engineers who wish to gain ageneral overview or update of the science and technology of shale gas. In addition, thebook discusses methods used to reduce environmental footprint and improvewell performance. Updates on the evolving processes and new processes Provides overview of the chemistry, engineering, and technology of shale gas Guides the reader through the latest environmental regulation regarding production and processing of shale
