Natural gas as an energy source

Natural gas (CH4) consists of 1 carbon molecule and 4 hydrogen molecules

Natural gas is a flammable natural gas extracted from the Earth’s interior.

Over 90% of natural gas comes from the colourless, odourless natural gas methane (CH4), the simplest fluorocarbon occurring in nature. Natural gas is extracted from boreholes in the ground and transported via an underground piping system.
