If you need assistance in selecting a calibration product, please contact us and we will help to recommend the calibrator that best suits your application.

About the Natural Gas Industry

Today, natural gas is used in a wide variety of industries worldwide. Some of the most common uses for natural gas include:

  • Electricity production 
  • As a raw material for producing fertilizers, chemicals, fuel for transportation, and more
  • As a heating source for cooking, washing clothes and many other applications in residential properties
  • As an energy source for outdoor lighting, powering cooling equipment and heating commercial buildings
  • … and more!

Natural gas is obtained from fossil fuels, which are found beneath the Earth’s surface and takes millions of years to form. It contains methane and a variety of other natural gas liquids (NGLs) such as sulfurs and other hydrocarbons. These deposits can be found beneath the ocean floor as well as on land. Once a source has been identified, the next step would be to obtain this natural gas for human use.

Why the Natural Gas Industry Needs Calibration Products and Services

In order to obtain natural gas from an identified source, a process known as hydraulic fracturing is carried out. This process is also known as unconventional production and involves forcing a mixture of water, sand and chemicals down a well under high-pressure conditions. Once the natural gas reaches the surface, it is directed into pipelines and sent to processing plants. Each pipeline has a set of tests that are performed to ensure efficiency, prevent damage and make sure safety regulations are met.Two critical components that are regularly tested and recorded include pressure and temperature.
