NG-1: Level 1 Natural Gas Characterization

Applications: Useful for distinguishing thermogenic gas from bacterial gas. Also frequently allows distinguishing different thermogenic gases, or differentiating storage gas from native gas.

Sample size required: Minimum sample size 20cc (STP), 100cc recommended. CH4 concentratiion must be 1.0% and there should be sufficient sample to provide at least 1.0cc (STP) of CH4 (preferably, much more).

Analyses includes: Gas chromatographic measurement of the concentrations of N2, O2, CO2, Ar, H2, He, CH4, C2H6, C3H8, iC4H10, nC4H10, iC5H12, nC5H12, and C6+, mass spectrometric determination of the δ13C of CH4, and δD of CH4.
