According to growing of demand for natural gas in global markets, it causes to modify and intensify its process. Indisputably, the existance of water in natural gas has so long been a controversial issue in gas industry and removing water from NG becomes a big deal, indeed. Gas dehydration is the most essntial and important way to solve this problem and there are several approaches to attain this aim. Among these methods, dehydration of natural gas with supersonic nozzle is an effictive method which is more efficient way than other methods. The main advantages of this method are its small size that is big deal for off-shore units because of limitation of location and also low operating costs with no deleterious environmental impact. In this study at first we examined some important methods for gas dehydration and then we proceed the details of supersonic nozzle method, and finally we compare it with other methods and conclude its unique advantages as abest method for gas dehydration.
