Natural Gas

What is 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 frame.

The natural gas power production process begins with the extraction of natural gas, continues with its treatment and transport to the power plants, and ends with its combustion in boilers and turbines to generate electricity. It is also piped directly into homes and businesses after it is processed for heat, cooking, and many other different uses.

Natural Gas is Clean

Natural Gas is "cleaner" than other fossil fuels. The use of natural gas to create electricity does not produce substantial amounts of solid waste. Natural gas produces half as much carbon dioxide, less than a third as much nitrogen oxides, and one percent as much sulfur oxides at the power plant than coal-fired generation. New technologies have made obtaining natural gas safer, easier to get, and cheaper to produce. Natural Gas is the “greenest” fossil fuel we have.

Natural Gas Market

The natural gas market is affected by four primary factors: weather, natural gas inventory, natural gas production, and what’s occurring in the market place with other fuels – primarily oil. Changing supply/demand fundamentals, unpredictable weather, the emergence of a global liquid natural gas market, and dynamic natural gas storage data have all contributed to the recent increase in natural gas volatility. The market ebbs and flows much like the stock market. Anyone of these factors can have great influence on how natural gas is priced.
