  • Natural Gas - 683 Words
    Electricity from Natural Gas Natural gas is a fossil fuel formed when layers of buried plants and animals are exposed to intense heat and pressure over thousands of years. The energy that the plants and animals originally obtained from the sun is stored in the form of carbon in natural gas. Natural gas is combusted to generate electricity, enabling this stored energy to be transformed into usable power. Natural gas is a nonrenewable resource because it cannot be replenished on a human time...

  • Natural Gas - 1711 Words
    Natural Gas Natural gas is another means of energy source that provides heating and electricity to many individuals. It is a natural mixture of methane, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and hydrogen sulfide. Natural gas was first found back in 1626 when the French found the natives lighting gas seeping in and out of the ground around Lake Erie. When natural gas was first introduced into civilization as a means of energy source it was not efficient nor was it environmentally friendly. It was first in...

  • Natural Gas and the Future of Energy
    Patrick Meehan Jeb Waldschmidt ENGL 102-05 3-26-05 Natural Gas and the Future of Energy Until recently natural gas was considered the dirty brother of oil. Natural gas was often stranded and left undeveloped, often wasting it. Oftentimes natural gas was considered ‘unusable' and ‘worthless' compared to oil. But now that the oil is running out a new light is being shown on natural gas. Today natural gas is very much in favor as a clean fossil fuel, especially for...

  • Project Report on Natural Gas
    What is Natural Gas? Natural gas, in itself, might be considered an uninteresting gas - it is colorless, shapeless, and odorless in its pure form. Quite uninteresting - except that natural gas is combustible, abundant in the United States and when burned it gives off a great deal of energy and few emissions. Unlike other fossil fuels, natural gas is clean burning and emits lower levels of potentially harmful byproducts into the air. We require energy constantly, to heat our homes, cook our...

    Hydrocarbon gas hydrates can form in deep ocean water but they are not found as a carpet on the sea floor. This is because such hydrates have a lower density than that of seawater (850 kg m−3 compared with 1025 kg m−3). As soon as they form, they float upwards and turn back into methane and water in the lower pressures and warmer temperatures of the upper layers of the ocean. However, within the sediments just beneath the sea floor, crystals of hydrocarbon gas hydrate form and move upwards...
