Gas chromatographs (GCs) are used in natural gas custody transfer applications. They provide information on the gas quality and composition—with components such as methane, ethane and heavier hydrocarbons, water vapor, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and hydrogen sulfide. These gas chromatograph are normally located on large gas stations with dedicated buyer use. In a Pipeline & Gas […]

There once was a time for industrial manufacturers when they received fairly homogeneous supplies of natural gas that did not vary much in energy content. Here in the U.S. with the rapid increase in shale gas production as part of the overall energy mix, there is more variance. In a Power magazine article, Gas Chromatographs […]

Gas chromatographs (GCs) are used to analyze natural gas streams to identify the hydrocarbon components in order to determine the energy content of the gas. Natural gas is typically sold based on the amount of this energy delivered. The quantity of energy delivered is calculated by multiplying the gas volume per unit time by the […]
