Book News Annotation:

Responds to the convergence of the two industries in the wake of deregulation by describing both in language such that professionals in one can understand the basics of the other, and readers with little knowledge beyond the switch can learn about both. First deals with natural gas from such perspectives as history, exploration and drilling, production, treatment, pipelines, storage, marketing, and trading options. Then considers such aspects of electricity as gas-fired plants, merchant plants, the growing popularity of distributed distribution, and how gas providers can benefit from the new market. Double spaced. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)

Synopsis:
