Natural Gas

This particular section will look at the fossil fuel known as natural gas and will provide various detailed sections explaining the many interesting characteristics of natural gas.

Natural gas is a fossil fuel that is considered to be the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels, ahead of coal and oil in that order. Natural gas is made primarily of methane but also includes quantities of ethane, butane, propane and pentane along with amounts of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, hydrogen sulphide and helium. It is often found in coal beds and oil fields because the formation of natural gas is also dependent on a number of the factors required to create coal and oil over millions of years. Natural gas is colourless and odourless and when it is mined, it is transported large distances by underground high-pressure pipelines.
