Where does Natural Gas come from? Most natural gas consumed in the United States is domestically produced in 2 ways:
• Gas streams produced from fossil fuel reservoirs contain natural gas, liquids, and other materials. Processing is required to separate the gas from petroleum liquids and to remove contaminants.
• Biogas is a mixture of methane and other gases produced from the decomposition of organic materials. It is produced naturally in landfills, and from the processing of animal waste, sewage, crop waste, and cellulosic and non-cellulosic crops. An energy-wise and greenhouse gas-wise alternative is to capture the biogas from these renewable waste sources, convert that biogas to biomethane, and use the biomethane to displace petroleum or other fossil fuels in transportation or other energy applications.
A dehydration plant controls water content; a gas processing plant removes certain hydrocarbon components to hydrocarbon dew point specifications; and a gas sweetening plant removes hydrogen sulfide and other sulfur compounds (when present).
CNG - Compressed Natural Gas is Safe
It comes as a surprise to many to hear that natural gas is one of the safest transport fuels available, CNG is actually safer than petrol. In its natural state, natural gas is odorless. As a safety measure, the gas is odorized with Mercaptan prior to distribution to provide a ready means of leak detection. An average person can easily detect the smell of gas at a concentration as low as 0.3% by volume in air. That concentration is about 16 times lower than the level which will support combustion.
