Natural Gas Manufacturing Error

Manufacturing natural gas is a four-step process that includes extracting, processing, transporting, and distributing gas. The entire process must be performed with care, as natural gas is highly explosive and may present a danger when mishandled.

When natural gas is mishandled, individuals within the blast radius may suffer serious injuries. If you or someone you love suffered an injury in a natural gas manufacturing error, contact the natural gas manufacturing error lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 1-800-242-2874.

The Manufacturing Process

  • The first step in manufacturing natural gas is extracting it from the ground. The gas is typically pumped out of the ground directly into a central processing plant.
  • Once in the processing plant, the gas is refined. In many cases, natural gas is a conglomerate of several types of gases. These individual gases are separated and harvested.
  • The individual gases are then distributed either through pipelines or transportation vehicles. Before going out for transport, mercaptan, a chemical with a distinct odor, is added to the gases.
  • When the gas is needed, it is transported into home through pipelines or bottled and sold, as is the case with liquid propane.
