Fuel gas

A fuel in the gaseous state whose potential heat energy can be readily transmitted and distributed through pipes from the point of origin directly to the place of consumption. The types of fuel gases are natural gas, LP gas, refinery gas, coke oven gas, and blast-furnace gas. The last two are used in steel mill complexes.

Most fuel gases are composed in whole or in part of the combustibles hydrogen, carbon monoxide, methane, ethane, propane, butane, and oil vapors and, in some instances, of mixtures containing the inerts nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and water vapor. See Coal gasification, Liquefied natural gas (LNG)
