The Natural Gas Reddit

Natural gas is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas mixture consisting primarily of methane, with other hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and hydrogen sulfide.

Natural gas is an energy source often used for heating, cooking, and electricity generation. It is also used as fuel for vehicles and as a chemical feedstock in the manufacture of plastics and other commercially important organic chemicals.

Natural gas is found in deep underground natural rock formations or associated with other hydrocarbon reservoirs in coal beds and as methane clathrates. Petroleum is also another resource found in proximity to and with natural gas. Most natural gas was created over time by two mechanisms: biogenic and thermogenic. Biogenic gas is created by methanogenic organisms in marshes, bogs, landfills, and shallow sediments. Deeper in the earth, at greater temperature and pressure, thermogenic gas is created from buried organic material.

Way to test gas leak without a match

Not looking to blow up my house.

I think what I'm smelling is just a weird weird mix of my laundry soap and possibly food with smells from outside. But it smells. Exactly like a gas leak. And its making me paranoid.

I don't wanna like bother the fire department to come out. As again I think I'm being paranoid. This is in a bedroom with no proximity to gas lines (furthest room from the kitchen) to my knowledge and the smell hasnt left the room though I noticed it originally 24 hours ago. I'm just wondering if there's any simple way to test (short of lighting a match) that would set my mind at ease.

Looking for a replacement Natural Gas Detector Alarm, my Honeywell HF500NG seems to be discontinued, any advice appreciated

Home user - my Honeywell HF500NG has expired according to the date on the unit. I've spoken to a company here in the UK and in turn they spoke to Honeywell and it appears it has been discontinued.

If anyone knows of a similar unit I can replace that one with I would appreciate any advice.

Thanks very much

Where can I get more context on the event that caused large natural gas price movement on a historical date?

I have historical Nymex natural gas futures price data from 2008. I have identified some dates on which there was large movement in the curve. Given those dates, I want to read more on the event that occurred on that date which caused the large curve move. I want to check if those were systemic event. Any ideas or sources from where I can get this info.

Question about Automate Retrieving notices fro natural gas information posting website

I'm was thinking about building a tool that automates retrieving and aggregating critical and non-critical notices from natural gas information postings websites or electronic bulliten board. This tool would notify the user notices by emails or through an API. Would you think such a tool would be useful?

No long hoses for grills ?

I'm getting an estimate to have a line extended for a grill, and a flexible hose as well. I got the idea after seeing a buddy's, who has like a 10-12 foot hose to his grill. Estimator said you can't do that, and it's like 6 feet max. He's the pro, I trust his statement. The local stores carry a lot of 12' hoses though - are they just selling stuff that isn't to code ? I'm sure mail order you can get anything you want (and be as dangerous as you want) but I'm surprised to see the 12' hoses in local hardware stores. Or maybe I'm confusing them for some other purpose.
