Shale gas definition, production, and uses

Shale gas definition, production, and uses

Renewable energy is the future, not just because it is greener and has no carbonization and greenhouse effects, but also because we are running out of oil, petroleum, coal, and natural gas. In 50 years, most of our resources will be gone. Switching to renewable sources of energy is a process, and we consider natural gas and shale gas as a bridge solution between now and the future

How is natural gas extracted? The process explained

How is natural gas extracted? The process explained

Natural gas or fossil gas is a non-renewable energy source, which is an odorless, colorless, flammable, and non-toxic hydrocarbon. The largest component is methane (CH4). Raw natural gas contains water, ethane, propane, butane, pentanes, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, water vapor, helium, and nitrogen. Natural gas is a fuel to provide power to factories or even households.
