Sulfur Information Now Available
Friday, March 31, 2006
PG&E's California Gas Transmission has added sulfur information to its therm factor/gas quality page on Pipe Ranger. All natural gas contains sulfur that naturally occurs in the gas, but CGT also adds sulfur compounds to odorize the gas. The gas is odorized as a safety measure so that customers can detect gas leaks easily by smell.
CGT continuously monitors its gas stream for specific sulfur compounds at several points on its system as part of its program to ensure that the gas is properly odorized and that sulfur levels are within established limits. CGT analyzes samples from representative parts of the system on a frequent basis to provide an estimate of the total sulfur contained in the PG&E gas supply. The estimates are expressed as parts per million by volume and grains per 100 Standard Cubic Feet.
PG&E's gas Rule 21 , Section C contains specifications on the quality of the gas received into the system including limits for sulfur compounds. If you have any questions about sulfur content please contact your CGT Account Services representative.
