1 Natural Gas

2 Location of Worlds Natural Gas Fields

3 The Process of Creating Natural Gas The process is the same as the process to create oil, with one important difference.

4 The Process of Creating Natural Gas Instead of being buried between 7500 and feet, the natural gas is buried at greater depths.

5 Location of Worlds Natural Gas Natural gas is more widely distributed than oil. In almost all oil fields, there are natural gas fields. In addition, there are many fields in areas without oil.

6 Advantages of Using Natural Gas

7 The Advantages of Natural Gas 1) Natural Gas (NG) is still cheap.

8 The Advantages of Natural Gas 2) There is an abundance of NG globally, at least a centurys worth at current use.

9 The Advantages of Natural Gas 3) There is an still plenty of NG in the North America, although not that much in the US.

10 Disadvantages of Using Natural Gas

11 The Disadvantages of Natural Gas 1) Like petroleum, burning natural gas generates a lot of air pollution.

12 The Disadvantages of Natural Gas 2) Burning natural gas worsens global warming.

13 The Disadvantages of Natural Gas 3) The pumping and transportation of natural gas generates a lot of methane. Methane is about 17 worse than carbon dioxide for the problem of global warming.

14 The Disadvantages of Natural Gas 4) To expand the production of NG, we will need to spend hundreds of billions to liquefy NG and transport it in liquid form.

15 The Disadvantages of Natural Gas 5) Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) is very hazardous to transport and store. A ship the size of the Exxon Valdez would explode with the power of a small nuclear bomb.

16 The Disadvantages of Natural Gas 6) The US will need to drastically increase its imports of NG if it wants to substitute NG for coal or petroleum. Where do we put the refineries and pipelines?
