Natural gas is found deep in underground rock formations. Natural gas is a fossil fuel formed when layers of buried plants, gases and animals are exposed to intense heat and pressure over thousands of years. It is a nonrenewable resource because it cannot be replenished on a human time frame. It is used for heating, cooking and electricity generation. Natural gas is also used as a fuel for vehicles and as a chemical feedstock in the manufacture of plastics. Petroleum is another fossil fuel found in close proximity to, and with natural gas. Before it can be used as a fuel, it must be processed to remove impurities, including water to meet the specifications of a marketable gas. Natural gas is often referred to as “gas”, however, it is not to be confused with “gasoline”. De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.
