What's in a Cubic Foot?

Friday, March 25, 2005

Have you ever wondered what's in a cubic foot of your natural gas? Aside from quaint curiosity, the answer to the question can be quite helpful to some customers. Detailed gas quality information allows industrial customers to refine their combustion processes, improve emissions reporting and aid efficiency testing.

As a courtesy to our customers, Pipe Ranger now offers gas quality data for most Btu areas in Pacific Gas and Electric Company's service territory. From Pipe Ranger's Operations page, choose Gas Quality Information and then select your Btu Area. You will see Btu content, specific gravity, and the proportion (in mole percent) of various compounds including methane, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and others. The amount of information available varies from Btu area to Btu area.

Please remember this data represents a snapshot of raw data from the Company's real-time monitoring systems. It is not reviewed for accuracy, as noted in the disclaimer.

The Therm Factors are now grouped with Gas Quality Information on Pipe Ranger's Operations page.

Your CGT Account Services Representative is available to answer any questions you may have.
