Natural gas is a versatile energy, with different applications for industry, the tertiary sector (shops and services), homes, vehicles and electricity generation. The combustion of natural gas does not generate solid particles or sulphur, making it especially attractive for urban use as a replacement for oil derivatives. It also offers substantial advantages in industrial processes, where it is important for energy to be clean, economical, efficient and highly reliable.
Depending on the sector, natural gas is used in the following applications and processes:
