Transcript of Natural Gas
POE Period 6
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
- 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
