About this book

The book provides an integrated energy/exergy analysis method to identify the energy utilization issues and systematically propose the cost-effective energy-saving and COmitigation/capture solution. There is a strong market needs on energy-saving and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction. COmitigation/capture will achieve economic benefit of fuel, power, and carbon tax saving as well as environmental GHG reduction.

The book is a professional book for energy-saving and GHG gas mitigation technology in oil & gas, oil refining, and chemical industry. It is an integrated technical book that combines energy utilization theory and practical method, including: thermodynamic analysis for unit operation and process units; energy and exergy calculation for various process streams and utilities; three-link energy/exergy analysis model; energy/exergy balance of equipment, process units, and entire plant; approach and technology of energy saving; optimization of pipeline and equipment; pinch energy-saving technology and its application; COcapture and utilization with 8 case studies incorporated for all different scenarios; key energy-saving technologies such gas turbine, FCCU regeneration CO combustion and energy recovery, flue gas turbine system optimization, low-grade heat recovery and utilization.  

The book is intended for engineers and professional personnel who are working in process engineering, EPC companies, chemical and petrochemical plants, refineries, oil & gas production facilities, power generation plant. It can also be a professional reference or textbook for undergraduate or graduate-level university students and teaching personnel of chemical, energy, and process engineering faculties of universities.

About the author

Tony A. Chen is a registered professional engineer in Canada with over 40 years of experience in the petrochemical and oil & gas industries. He is an expert in energy integration, GHG mitigation, process engineering, process simulation and optimization. He received his Master’s Degree in petroleum engineering from Beijing Petroleum University. Most recently, he served as a senior process advisor for Chevron Corporation worked on Chevron LNG plant, gas processing, TCO oil & gas facilities and received Chevron TCO Management Recognition Award in 2020 for initiating and implementing an ethane gas flaring reduction project that achieved significant cost savings. While at Chevron, Tony also led the energy integration and GHG reduction program for an LNG project with significant cost saving and made a presentation for Chevron FE 2014 World Conference in Houston on Energy Integration and GHG Mitigation for the LNG Project. 

He is also the author of Methods and Technology of Energy Conservation on Petrochemical Process, written two textbooks used in the continuing engineering training for SINOPEC. He delivered an integrated simulation model on H&M balance and BFD development using HYSYS and presented it on 2009 Aspen Worldwide User Conference in Houston. He received four Science and Technology Awards from SINOPEC. Granted 1 invention patent by Patent Bureau of China. 

Prior to Chevon, as a principal process engineer, he also worked for Jacobs and other EPC companies in Canada, experienced whole range of process engineering, including FEED and detail engineering, and completed 50+ projects with cost-effective solutions. He was the manager of environmental engineering department of LPEC/SINOPEC before 2000. In this role, he completed multiple oil refinery energy integration and GHG mitigation projects and process design and energy integration for multiple process units.
