Qualities of Natural Gas

Natural gas, a natural resource, is found by drilling into reservoirs underneath the earth's crust. In contrast to other fossil fuels, natural gas burns clean and emits lower levels of potentially harmful byproducts into the air. As a result of its excellent burning qualities, natural gas is used in various applications such as for power stations suitable for natural gas usage, heating systems, fluid fossil fuel production, the production of different chemicals and more. In its purest form, the gas is colorless and odorless. For safety reasons, when used in the distribution system, Ethyl Mercaptan is added. This chemical substance has a very strong odor and enables quick recognition in cases of gas leakage.
