Widely used throughout the world is obtained from bores sunk into the earth either on land or under the sea. Although natural gas varies in different parts of the world, it is basically methane, but it may contain a number of other contaminants that may have to be removed before it can be distributed. A "wet gas" contains hydrocarbons, which are liquid at normal temperatures (eg. Petrol fractions); a "sour gas" contains hydrogen sulphide. As finally distributed natural gas is substantially methane, it has a high H.V (heating valve) of around 40 MJ per cubic metre and is not toxic.

Geologically, natural gas is the gaseous phase of petroleum. For the most part it is made up of methane, while the remaining components (superior paraffinic hydrocarbons, such as ethane, propane, butane, pentane, etc.) are variable in quantity, depending on the fields. Natural gas is widely employed in household uses, in industry and in petrochemicals as feedstock. Feedstock: a raw material that can be converted to one ore more end-products(methanol or synthetic natural gas, for example).
Natural gas is domestically produced and readily available to end-users through the utility infrastructure. It is also clean burning and produces significantly fewer harmful emissions. In vehicles Natural Gas is used in both compressed and liquid forms.

Gaseous fossil energy resource, consisting of light hydrocarbons and other gases. It mainly consists of methane and other hydrocarbon compounds, such as ethane, propane and butane. Natural gas accounts for 21.6% of Germany's primary energy consumption, which means that it ranks third position behind petroleum (40%) and coal (25%). Decisive factors for the increasing market share of natural gas are supply security, its environmental friendly use (natural gas is the fuel with the lowest emissions after hydrogen), its efficiency and its financial competitiveness. 90% of the hydrogen required for making fuel cells run is currently being produced from natural gas. Germany procures natural gas from national sources (22%), western European sources (41%) and from Russian production (37%).

New Natural Gas power plants, called combined cycle combustion turbines, are very efficient and only produce a fraction of the air pollution of other types of fossil fuel fired power plants. Old Natural Gas plants that are simply converted (fossil fuel fired facilities) emit carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases. Some environmental advocates do not consider natural gas a 'green' technology, because the exploration for and extraction of natural gas can severely damage ecosystems.
Natural gas is a fossil fuel made of about 50% methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Like coal and oil, natural gas is a nonrenewable resource because it cannot be replenished on a human time scale. According to the U.S. EPA, natural gas power plants provide about 14 percent of the electricity produced in the United States, ranking third behind coal and nuclear power. In New England, its use is much higher, with about 40% of our electricity and the majority of our heating provided by natural gas.
