Natural gas was first seen as a dangerous by-product of oil drilling, it could potentially cause a blow-out. This occurs when pockets of gas rise along the drilling pipe up to the drilling platform where it accumulates and causes a potential explosive situation. But natural gas has evolved sins then and today it has developed into an important and clean source of energy, used for heating, cooking and electricity production. Nearly every oil deposit has some pockets of gas present, but gas can also reside in the ground without oil present. With the current known reserves and consumption around 58 years of natural gas still remains.
