Dr. Sreenath Borra Gupta obtained his B. Tech from IIT-Madras, and subsequently a M.S. and a Ph.D. from The Pennsylvania State University. After graduation, he held several combustion engineering positions at Abar Ipsen, Gas Technology Institute and Rolls-Royce. Dr. Gupta currently holds the position of a research engineer at Distributed Energy Research Center (DERC) belonging to Argonne National Laboratory, USA. In this capacity he conducts research to improve the performance and reduce the emissions footprint of stationary natural gas engines. His efforts include (i) development of a laser ignition system for natural gas engines, (ii) evaluation of polymeric membranes for nitrogen enrichment of combustion air, (iii) development of advanced combustion laser diagnostics, (iv) promoting the use of alternative gaseous fuels, and (v) improving the viability of micro-CHP systems. Dr. Gupta is happily married, has two lovely kids and a dog, who keep him busy on the home front.

Natural gas has traditionally been used as a feedstock for the chemical industry, and as a fuel for process and space heating. Recent advances in exploration, drilling techniques and hydraulic fracturing have made it possible for natural gas to become available in abundance (as of 2012). As natural gas displaces traditional petroleum use in various sectors, a certain amount of disruption is likely. In such a changing landscape, this book tries to chronicle the state-of-the-art in various aspects of natural gas: exploration, drilling, gas processing, storage, distribution, end use and finally the impact on financial markets. Review articles as well as research papers contributed by leading authorities around the world comprise individual chapters of this book. Modeling approaches, as well as, recent advances in specific natural gas technologies are covered in detail.
