Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Natural Gas One of the cleanest and safest forms of energy How is it formed into energy? helping stimulate growth Locations of the world's natural gas reserves *resources - A fossil fuel formed when layers of buried plants and animals are exposed to intense heat over thousands of years. The organisms are exposed to heat because of being highly compressed underneath thousands of metres of soil and rock. The force transforms the organisms into natural gas. Russia- 1,680 tcf Middle East-2,686 tcf(40%) 1923 tcf-Spread across the world double click to changethis text! Drag a cornerto scale proportionally. tcf- trillion cubic feet The total volume of the world's natural gas reserves is 6,289 tcf. The Middle East holds 40% of this, with 2,686 tcf. Russia has the second largest amount of reserves in the world, with 1,680 tcf. Extracted by drilling into the ground from the earth's surface Treated at gas plants to remove impurities such as H2S and CO2 Transported to power plant where different methods are used to convert the gas to energy Burn the gas in a boiler that produces steam, and is then used by a steam turbine to generate power Burns the gas in a combustion turbine Transported through a network of pipelines and is delivered to the areas of use, like our homes A NON-RENEWABLEsource- can not be replenished over a human time frame 1 2 3 4 5 Countries that consume the most gas:1. US2. Russia3. Iran4. China5. Japan Percentage of CO2 Emissions as a Result of Using Fossil Fuels 43%Coal 21%Natural gas 36%Oil Used for efficient heating, a cooking source for businesses and homes, a component in the manufacture of electronics, and a source of fuel for vehicles. Laura Hough Pros:- Combustible and burns more cleanly- No waste or residue to deal with Cons: - Fracking is often used to extract- This harms the environment- pollutes water and kills marine life- Fracking linked to earthquakes
