‘The Changing Scene of Natural Gas and Alternative Fuels’, by Terry Williams of Orbital Gas Systems, is the second paper to be published in the newly re-launched Industrial Combustion Journal.
This paper describes natural gas quality variations worldwide and looks forward to predicting further changes. The drivers for these changes are presented as gas field depletion, climate change, emissions reduction, sustainability and ‘power-to-gas’ energy storage.
ources of future gaseous fuels are examined as pipeline interconnectors, liquefied natural gas, shale gas, biomethane and hydrogen in natural gas, and these are related to gas interchangeability. Various technologies for natural gas quality monitoring are described and compared. Finally, the challenges and opportunities for individuals and companies are proposed and these require innovation and development to be able to anticipate and compensate for fuel supply variations in the future.
