Annotation -
Engineering of the natural gas transmission and distribution pipelines. State behavior and transport properties of natural gas, flow in pipeline. Pressure control, Joule-Thomson phenomenon, gas heating before the pressure regulation. Pipeline system operation and corresponding cashflows. Additionally, the principles and utilization of underground storages, construction and rehabilitation of gas pipelines as well as the legal and safety background.
