Thread: Natural Gas well

  1. #1

    Default Natural Gas well

    Hey Guys.

    I am working on a house that is connected to a private natural gas well (yep thats free gas). I am told that its a good idea to hook up a moisture separator tank due to all the moisture that these wells produce along with the gas. I was told that guys use a galvanized pressure tank like used for a well pump. I don't see how this would work because there is only one connection and I would think you need two. Besides the fact of how you would drain it. I have scoured the Web for any info but have had no luck. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Thanks

    I worked for Columbia Gas for over 29 years and you are correct in that the well will produce moisture. The tank must have some type of baffles inside ( plates welded to inside tank or cut up pipe inside) and inlet,outlet, and drain.

    Hello,

    Any idea where something like that can be purchased?

    You might check with local gas company or find a local pipe welder.
    We were large enough to fabricate our own scrubbers. The well will produce liquid especially when the weather gets cold. This can the stop gas flow to house and pilot lights and even freeze.

    Default Natural gas well

    Hello,
    Please excuse any errors, I'm new to this. I also have a gas well on my property and have been waiting to hook up to my house. I'm wanting to find somebody experienced in this to do the hook up. Someone told me that if there is to much sulfur in the gas it might be dangerous. Does anyone have more info on this, or the well hook up?
    thanks

    The presence of sulfur (H2s) is called sour gas and can be deadly. The cost and safety concerns to make it acceptable to use would prevent me from using it.

    How could I find out if my well is acceptable or safe from sulfur?

    You should contact one of the major pipelines in your area. They may give you the information for a lab that could test a sample from your well. I have no idea
    what they would charge.
