What Is Liquefied Natural Gas

What is liquefied natural gas From gas to liquid  Natural gas cooled after cleaning from admixtures to the condensation temperature (-161.5 °C), turns into liquid called “liquefied natural gas” (LNG). The volume of gas is contracted by 600 times during liquefaction, which is one of the main advantages …

How Is Natural Gas Produced

How is natural gas produced Natural gas rises up the well using natural energy. It is produced in America, Europe, Africa, and other regions. One-fifth of the global production falls on Gazprom. “Blind” extraction Natural gas occurs in fine pores of some rocks. Depth, at which natural gas is located, …

What Are Liquefied Petroleum Gases

What are liquefied petroleum gases Liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) are produced from associated petroleum gas. These are pure gases or special mixtures that can be used to heat buildings, to produce petrochemicals and as a motor fuel. NGL in GFU Liquefied gases are made from natural gas …

What Is Associated Petroleum Gas

What is associated petroleum gas Associated petroleum gas (APG) is gas dissolved in oil. Associated petroleum gas is produced in the process of oil production, so it is actually a derivative. But APG itself is also a valuable raw material for further processing. Molecular composition Associated petroleum gas is composed of light hydrocarbons. First …

What Can Be Manufactured From Natural Gas

What Can Be Manufactured From Natural Gas Natural gas burns very well. Therefore, it is mostly used for generating electric or thermal energy. However, it can also be used to make fertilizers, fuel, paint, and many other items. Significant volumes of gas are also used in the metallurgic …

Where Is Heavy Oil Found

Where Is Heavy Oil Found Exploration Heavy oils are frequently found at the margins of geologic basins, according to the USGS, and are assumed to be residue from formerly light oil that has lost its light molecular weight components through …

What Is Heavy Oil And How Is Formed

  As defined by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), heavy oil is a type of crude oil characterized by an asphaltic, dense, viscous nature (similar to molasses), and its asphaltene (very large molecules incorporating roughly 90 percent of the sulfur …
