How is natural gas formed and used

How is it formed , it's the remains of plants and animals that have died over 5million yrs ago . The formation of natural gas is if an sea animal for example it dies and its body decays then it settled down at the very bottom of the sea or ocean,lake,pond,river or creek. Then the sea animals body stays there and then the sand packs its self on top of the sea animal then the limestone then over time the sea animal has five stages to go through first is Mortis since the body is not pumping blood through the body due to gravity the the certain areas in the body known as livor mortis. And shortly after that the muscular tissue becomes rigid and incapable of relaxing, a state called Rigor mortis. Next the body loses heat and cools in a process called Algor mortis. Second, the body goes through bloat, in which means that microbes are rapidly growing and forming gases within the body. This is also usually when bugs and insects begin to feed and reproduced on the remains. In the third stage there is rapid loss mass due to insects feeding and natural purging of fluids due to decomposition. Advanced decay is the fourth stage, and there is little left of the body at this point. Finally the last stage is skeletonization when no flesh remains. But this isn't the end of it but the study of which is known as taphonomy and is extremely important for archaeologists. How is it used , for heating, cooking electricity chemical feedstock fuel manufacture of plastics and organic chemicals.

What is the advantages and disadvantages

Advantages, cleanest fossil fuel, highly effective form of energy , it has fewer impurities, less chemically complex and combustion results topless pollution. Disadvantages, can be dangerous if not handled correctly it can be hazardous to any living thing .

Were is natural gas most found abundantly

Nearly 80% of the worlds total proven natural gas are located in ten countries. Russia tops the list, holding about a quarter of the worlds total gas reserves, following Iran and Qatar in the Middle East.

Save energy

Save the energy because we would need it later unless we come up with something else to use
