SKU: GRI-92/0123
Variability of Natural Gas Composition in Select Major Metropolitan Areas of the United States

Over 6800 gas analyses were obtained from 26 major urban areas located in 19 states and each of the major geographical regions of the U.S. A study of peakshaving practices indicated that the composition of send-out gases can be significantly affected by the addition of propane-air mixtures or vaporized liquefied natural gas.

Summary:
Regional and seasonal variations in the composition and physical properties of natural gas are quantified, particularly in their impact on stationary engines and natural gas vehicles. Over 6800 gas analyses were obtained from 26 major urban areas located in 19 states and each of the major geographical regions of the U.S. A study of peakshaving practices indicated that the composition of send-out gases can be significantly affected by the addition of propane-air mixtures or vaporized liquefied natural gas. A study of hydrocarbon dew points indicated that gaseous fuels with higher concentration of heavier hydrocarbons have a greater likelihood of condensing those heavy hydrocarbons under certain conditions of temperature and pressure typical for compressor systems and fuel storage tanks. This report offers a strong statistical basis for understanding the chemical and physical properties of natural gas in support of engine and vehicle manufacturers making equipment design and development decisions as well as related initiatives on gas-fired reciprocating engine technology and vehicle refueling and storage. Tabular appendixes include fuel properties data and condensate volume data.
