Enabling Natural Gas Field Analysis for Certification and QA with Raman
Natural gas field analysis is crucial to ensure the quality and purity of natural gas. However, to ensure quality, midstream companies have traditionally relied on analytical equipment to perform gas analysis. One such traditional method used in the midstream segment is gas chromatography, which can be time-consuming and expensive. The good news is that there is a faster and more cost-effective way to analyze natural gas – through Raman spectroscopy.
Raman spectroscopy is a solid-state analytical technique that uses laser light to measure the composition of gases. It has become increasingly popular in the energy industry as a way to obtain high-resolution compositional data, linear response to concentration, and the ability to measure samples in real-time. Raman spectroscopy offers several benefits over traditional methods, including reduced operating costs and less wear and tear on lab equipment required by relevant ASTM standards. Solid-state Raman also enables natural gas field analysis by taking measurement directly to the point of need.
The MarqMetrix All-In-One Raman system is a reliable choice for C1-C6+ field analysis in the midstream segment. It offers an integrated solution that provides high-quality results with minimal setup and maintenance. By using Raman spectroscopy, midstream companies can complement their existing analytical technologies in the lab, leading to faster analysis and better quality control.
