The United States has vast deposits of natural gas, enough to last several generations even without any of the massive technological breakthroughs that have regularly occurred in the natural gas industry throughout history.

Its abundance, combined with its low-emissions and reliability, make natural gas an affordable and low-carbon energy choice for today’s consumers.

Natural gas is colorless, shapeless, and odorless in its pure form. It can be measured by volume in cubic feet or by its energy output in British thermal units (Btu).

Natural gas is energy-rich:  just one cubic foot of natural gas contains 1,027 Btus – enough to heat 1,000 pounds of water by one degree.
