What is it?

- Vital energy source in the world
- A fossil fuel (non-renewable)
- Highly flammable
- Abundant in America
- Provides a lot of energy with few
emissions when burned

Properties & Composition
- A combustible mixture of hydrocarbons
- Mainly methane
- Includes ethane, propane, butane, and pentane
- Is colorless, shapeless, and odorless
- Measured volume in cubic feet or as a source of
energy in Btus.

How does it form?
- Remains of plants, animals, and other
- Millions of millions of years old
- Buried under layers of sediment
- Exposed to extreme pressure and
- Coal, petroleum oil, and natural gas.

How we harvest it?
- Located with seismic surveys
- Obtained through fracking
- Transported through pipes

Natural gas project:
- is millions and millions of years old.
- methods for obtaining gas were brought recently
- the root of much myth and superstition.
- most famous flames found in ancient Greece
on Mount Parnassus approximately 1000 B.C.
- Britain: first country to commercialize natural gas
- first brought to the United States in 1816
- William Hart: considered father of natural gas

Fun Facts

- Used to make salt in China, 200 B.C
- Lighter than air
- Root of many myths and superstitions
- Britain: first to commercialize natural gas
- Brought to the United States in 1816

- Refined in processing plants
- Stored underground
- Distributed through pipeline
- Found with seismic survey
- Extracted by drilling
- Travel through pipes

Emerging Technology
- 3D and 4D seismic imaging
- Fracking:
CO2 sand
- Coiled tubing
- Natural gas fuel cell
- Produces 21% of the
worlds power
- Produces little residue
- No waste
- Cleanest fossil fuel
- Currently inexpensive
and abundant

- Non-renewable resource
- Greenhouse gases: CO2
and methane
- Requires pipelines
- Highly flammable
- Drilling dangers
