  Natural gas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Natural gas, commonly referred to as gas, is a gaseous fossil fuel consisting primarily of methane.
Natural gas is, in itself, harmless to the human body -- unlike carbon monoxide, for instance, it is not a poison.
Natural gas is important as a major source for electricity generation through the use of gas turbines and steam turbines.

 Natural Gas
Natural gas can be used in any vehicle with a regular internal combustion engine, although the vehicle must be outfitted with a special carburetor and fuel tank.
LNG is made by cooling natural gas to a temperature of minus 260 degrees F. At that temperature, natural gas becomes a liquid and its volume is reduced 615 times.
Natural gas also has less sulfur and nitrogen compounds, and it emits less ash particulates into the air when it is burned than coal or petroleum fuels.

 Natural Gas
Natural gas is the largest single source of resource development revenue for Albertans, accounting for more than $28.2 billion in royalties paid to the Government of Alberta from fiscal 2000/2001 to fiscal 2004/2005.
Natural gas is also responsible for a significant portion of the oil and gas industry’s investment in Alberta, totalling over $90 billion from 2000 to 2004.
Natural gas is an important raw material for the province’s oil sands and electric power generation industries, which have expanded in recent years as the result of significant investment based on availability of the resource in Alberta.

 LNG Plants,LNG Gas Plant,Liquid Natural Gas Plant,Natural Gas Liquefaction Plants
Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) comprises of liquid hydrocarbons that are recovered from natural gases in gas processing plants, and in some cases, from field processing facilities.
LNG accounts for about 4% of natural gas consumption worldwide, and is produced in dozens of large-scale liquefaction plants.
LNG occupies 1/600th the volume of natural gas at atmospheric temperature and pressure.

 Chevron - Liquid Natural Gas
LNG is natural gas that has been cooled to -260F, changing it from a gas into a liquid 1/600th its original volume.
After arriving at its destination, LNG is warmed to return it to its gaseous state and delivered to natural gas customers through local pipelines.
Returning LNG to a gaseous state is done at LNG import and regasification terminals, which are designed and constructed according to stringent national codes and international standards.

Liquefied natural gas, or LNG, is natural gas that has been treated and cooled to minus 260 degrees Fahrenheit.
The gas is transported by ship to large terminals, which convert the liquid back into a gas before it is introduced into the pipeline grid.
Demand for natural gas by 2010 will be strongest in the Southeast, which will need 3.8 billion cubic feet a day of new reserves over 2000 levels, Elliott said.

 Puget Sound Clean Cities Coalition  Natural Gas
Natural gas is composed primarily of methane, along with other hydrocarbons such as ethane, propane and butane.
Natural gas can be used in the full range of vehicles, from passenger vehicles to heavy-duty trucks.
In addition, because natural gas is lighter than air, it will rise and dissipate rapidly in the unlikely event of a leak, as opposed to other fuels which tend to pool on the ground or enter sewer or water systems.

 Process for freeze protection and purification of natural gas liquid product streams produced by the Mehra process - ...
Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons, including methane, ethane, propane, and various amounts of higher molecular weight hydrocarbons together with acid gases, such as CO.sub.2 and/or H.sub.2 S. A "dry" gas is one containing predominantly methane with some ethane, propane, and butane with a very low hydrocarbon dew point.
The liquid hydrocarbon is admixed with an aqueous amine solution and then passed into a large gravity separator from which the hydrocarbon liquid containing some dissolved amine is drawn into a second mixing system wherein it is thoroughly mixed with pure water and passed through a second gravity separator.
The charged methanol is expanded in a liquid turbine to produce a liquid phase of generally methanol-containing solubilized CO.sub.2 and a gaseous phase consisting of hydrocarbons solubilized in or entrained by the methanol.

In certain crude oils and natural gas liquids there are, however, also naturally occurring pour point depressants for instance in the form of asphaltenes, which are a group of heavy polar aromatic compound having a molecu- lar weight in the range 700-1000 g/mole.
These natural pour point depressants are present in the crude oil or natural gas liquid when it is produced from the reser- voir, and are normally fully disperse in the liquid phase at initial reservoir conditions.
In this way it is avoided that the flocculated natural pour point depressants, which appar- ently form a separate, polar liquid phase, are capable of absorbing the synthetic pour point depressants by virtue of their content of polar groups.

In such applications, a portion of stream 12 may optionally be withdrawn and passed as liquid stream 22, shown in the Drawing as a dotted line, directly to the upper portion of the fractionation column 15.
In conventional LNG manufacturing processes, essentially all of the C5+ hydrocarbons are removed from the natural gas before the gas is liquefied to avoid freezing problems.
Depending upon the natural gas composition, the amounts of C3+ that could be left with the PLNG for transport to a desired destination could reduce the bubble point pressure by as much as 50 to 60 psia (345 to 414 kPa) for PLNG compositions extremely rich in

 Natural gas locomotives
Typically for freight locomotives, the preferred natural gas medium is liquid natural gas (LNG).

 Cascadia Scorecard Weblog: Natural Gas: Liquid Launch
Natural gas consumption has been on the rise in the Northwest, in part to fuel new electricity generators.
Gas turbines are cheap to build, compared with other kinds of generating plants; and despite all the attention the Northwest's new wind farms have garnered, between 2001 and 2003 the region added 17 times asmuch generating capacity as from natural gas as from wind.
But LNG consumes a lot of energy: you have extract the gas in some distant spot, pressurize and refrigerate it, and move the resulting liquid halfway around the world -- meaning that with LNG, the energy-efficiency benefits of natural gas will be falling, even as the cost is rising.

 Step into Liquid
Transporting LNG from distant countries presents massive technological and financial challenges, but importing LNG from those nations could provide much needed gas for the U.S., assuming America is willing to add to its already bloated import bills and balance of payment problems.
Historically, the vast majority of all liquid natural gas exports to the United States have come from a single LNG processing plant in Trinidad and Tobago, a Caribbean island nation near the coast of Venezuela.
LNG ships are made of the kind of materials that can keep the gas cool once it's been liquefied.

 Fuels Containing Methane or Natural Gas in Solution
Because the pressure needed to maintain the fuel in liquid form would be more nearly constant and generally lower than that needed to maintain compressed natural gas in liquid form, the pressure rating of a tank used to hold this fuel could be lower than that of a tank used to hold compressed natural gas.
Yet another advantage afforded by use of a blend of gasoline and natural gas would be a reduction in the amount of gasoline consumed.
Because natural gas costs less than gasoline does and is in abundant supply in the United States, the cost of automotive fuel and the demand for imported oil could be reduced.
