Measuring energy content and value
If you work in the natural gas industry, no one has to tell you that shale gas is big news. To date, 1,000 trillion cubic feet of natural gas trapped in shale formations are being obtained in North America, plus another 200 trillion cubic feet in Europe.
As worldwide demand for natural gas grows right along with this newly accessible supply, you’re under pressure to quickly and accurately measure its quality and heating/calorific value — especially since prices are based on the energy content of the gas.
And that’s where Agilent can help.
The Agilent 490 Micro GC Natural Gas Analyzer and 490 Micro GC for Mud Logging are preconfigured for reliable shale gas analysis in seconds, and they are small enough to take virtually anywhere. Back at the lab, you can count on Agilent’s 7890B Natural Gas Analyzer — based on our industry-leading GC platform — for turnkey operation and outstanding results.
