The Importance of Natural Gas Field Analysis to Verify Natural Gas Quality

Natural gas field analyses are vital when it comes to verifying the purity and quality of natural gas. A conventional analytical method used in the midstream sector is gas chromatography. However, this method is time-consuming and expensive. Process Raman spectroscopy, on the other hand, offers a faster and more cost-effective method for analyzing natural gas.

Process Raman spectroscopy is a solid-state analytical method that utilizes laser light to calculate the composition of gases. Process Raman spectroscopy has gained popularity in the energy industry due to its ability to deliver high-resolution compositional data, offer a linear response to concentration changes, and perform real-time sample analysis.

Process Raman spectroscopy provides several advantages over traditional methods, such as lower operating expenses and decreased depreciation of laboratory equipment mandated by ASTM standards. Additionally, solid-state process Raman spectroscopy enables on-site sample measurements for natural gas analysis, directly at the point of need.

The Thermo Scientific™ MarqMetrix™ All-in-One Process Raman Analyzer is a reliable option for C1–C6+ field analysis in the midstream sector, offering an innovative approach that yields exceptional results with minimal setup and maintenance.

By incorporating process Raman spectroscopy, midstream companies can enhance their existing laboratory analytical technologies, leading to faster analyses and elevated quality control.
