Technology has made it possible for the modern world to move at a very rapid pace thanks to its technological advancements. This is possible thanks to innovations in the field of energy generation, which has allowed man to rely more on the natural resources available to him. Exploiting fossil fuels for energy and applying them to the production of electricity has enabled man to prosper and to meet the ever increasing needs of the modern world’s households.
As a result, we have become increasingly dependent on fossil fuels like oil and coal. But, as renewable forms of energy these are starting to show signs that they are being depleted from natural resources and oil fields and coal mines. Another blow to mankind has been when it was found that fossil fuels are responsible for large amounts of carbon dioxide being released into the Earth’s atmosphere. This has contributed to global warming.
Since Canada Natural Gas, which is another type. of fossil fuel, was discovered it has been a long time. This natural gas is the first to emerge from the oil fields and whose usage was not known for many years. It wasn’t until scientific studies of natural gas were performed that it was shown that it could be used to replace crude oil. It had a very high calorific content, making it suitable for burning as well heating and generating electricity.
Recent studies also found that the emissions of carbon particulates from natural gas subsequent to burning proved to be very low. Natural gas could be used safely as a fossil fuel and overuse would not harm the earth’s environment. Only after this, natural gas consumption increased in all parts of the world. To meet the growing demand, measures were taken worldwide to increase natural gas production.
Many countries around the globe have begun to explore for more natural gas resources to help meet their home demand. It’s been described as a safer, cheaper and more reliable source of fossil fuel. This could prove to be the energy for the future. With the goal of increasing natural gas production, natural gas exploration companies from all over the world are making their best efforts to extract more of the fuel. Natural gas can be seen as the next oil, due to its high calorific content and lower carbon emissions.
