Higher Heating Values of Natural Gases From Various Sources

The International Energy Agency reports the following typical higher heating values:

  • Algeria: 42,000 kJ/m³
  • Bangladesh: 36,000 kJ/m³
  • Canada: 38,200 kJ/m³
  • Indonesia: 40,600 kJ/m³
  • Netherlands: 33,320 kJ/m³
  • Norway: 39,877 kJ/m³
  • Pakistan: 34,900 kJ/m³
  • Russia: 38,231 kJ/m³
  • Saudi Arabia: 38,000 kJ/m³
  • United Kingdom: 39,710 kJ/m³
  • United States: 38,416 kJ/m³
  • Uzbekistan: 37,889 kJ/m³

The lower heating value of natural gas is normally about 90 percent of its higher heating val.

Famous quotes containing the words gases, sources, natural, higher, heating and/or values:

    The bird is not in its ounces and inches, but in its relations to Nature; and the skin or skeleton you show me, is no more a heron, than a heap of ashes or a bottle of gases into which his body has been reduced, is Dante or Washington.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we’re looking for the sources of our troubles, we shouldn’t test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)

    The natural historian is not a fisherman who prays for cloudy days and good luck merely; but as fishing has been styled “a contemplative man’s recreation,” introducing him profitably to woods and water, so the fruit of the naturalist’s observations is not in new genera or species, but in new contemplations still, and science is only a more contemplative man’s recreation.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I never feel so conscious of my race as I do when I stand before a class of twenty-five young men and women eager to learn about what it is to be black in America.
    Claire Oberon Garcia, African American college professor. As quoted in the Chronicle of Higher Education, p. B3 (July 27, 1994)

    If the factory people outside the colleges live under the discipline of narrow means, the people inside live under almost every other kind of discipline except that of narrow means—from the fruity austerities of learning, through the iron rations of English gentlemanhood, down to the modest disadvantages of occupying cold stone buildings without central heating and having to cross two or three quadrangles to take a bath.
    Margaret Halsey (b. 1910)

    I describe family values as responsibility towards others, increase of tolerance, compromise, support, flexibility. And essentially the things I call the silent song of life—the continuous process of mutual accommodation without which life is impossible.
    Salvador Minuchin (20th century)
