Natural Gas Analysis


The testing of natural gas requires fast and precise analysis of fixed gases and light hydrocarbons. The composition and calculated properties of natural gas are critical across a range of applications including midstream gas processing from well heads, pipeline quality measurement for appliance and engine research, and gas quality for utilities. Due to the variations in natural gas composition, it is necessary to monitor the physical properties by industry standard calorific calculations as small changes can have financial and development impacts. In addition, the concentration of sulfur and non-sulfur based odorants can be monitored for odorization purposes.


  • Accurate and precise compositional analysis
  • Calorific calculations and other physical properties according to industry standards
  • Fast, simple, and transportable analysis


INFICON Micro GC Fusion® is capable of analyzing fixed gases, C1-C5 hydrocarbons, C6+ or C6-C9+ carbon number groups in a natural gas stream within minutes. With the combination of Diablo EZ Reporter software, calorific values (BTU) and other industry standard calculations are provided in an easily accessible report. Micro GC Fusion can be transported in the field due to its lightweight and compact design. The instrument can also be used in a laboratory/remote location or interfaced with incoming gas lines.
