Components of Natural Gas other than Methane

Natural gas is a mixture of methane, with lower amounts of other hydrocarbons and other substances. These other constituents modify the physical and chemical characteristics of natural gas, for example, inert gases make the natural gas heating value lower. The substances that can be in natural gas are: • Carbon dioxide • Nitrogen • Hydrogen sulphide Heavier hydrocarbons …

Natural Gas Industry

Natural Gas Terminology: Reservoir: Porous & permeable underground formation containing an individual bank of H.C.s confined by impermeable rock or water barriers characterized by a single natural pressure system. Field: Area of one or more reservoirs related to same structural feature. Pool: Contains one or more reservoirs in isolated structures. Wells can be classified as gas …

Natural Gas Hydrates

what are Hydrates Introduction to Hydrate Natural gas hydrates are ice-like materials formed under low temperature and high pressure conditions. Natural gas hydrates consist of water molecules interconnected through hydrogen bonds which create an open structural lattice that has the ability to encage smaller hydrocarbons from natural gas or liquid hydrocarbons as guest molecules. Interest …

What is LNG?

What is LNG? Liquefied natural gas, or LNG, is natural gas in its liquid form. When natural gas is cooled to minus 259 degrees Fahrenheit (-161 degrees Celsius), it becomes a clear, colorless, odorless liquid. LNG is neither corrosive nor toxic. Natural gas is primarily methane, with low concentrations of other hydrocarbons, water, carbon dioxide, …

Natural Gas Dehydration Part.2

PROCESS DESCRIPTION OF GAS DEHYDRATION The principle of glycol dehydration is contacting a natural gas stream with a hygroscopic liquid which has a greater affinity for the water vapor than does the gas. Contactor pressure is subject to economic evaluation usually influenced by water removal duty, required water dewpoint, vessel diameter and wall thickness. After …

What is LPG

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) includes propane, butane, butadiene, isopropane, propylene, and vinyl chloride monomer, which are all by-products of the production of oil and natural gas. LPGs have a variety of uses including as a cooking/heating fuel, refinery feedstock, automotive power, and numerous other plastics and chemicals applications. another definition of LPG is that LPG …
