Abstract

Recently, natural gas is widely used as an energy source aside of petroleum oil, electrical source and coal. At Malaysia, natural gas has high demand on power generation (71%), large industry (17%), exportation (7%) and others for commercial and resident (5%) [6]. In fact, there are many advantages of natural gas in terms of safety, environmental friendly, easy in handling and cost saving. Natural gas has controlled volume substance and has low specific gravity that is difficult to ignite. There is also provision for safety devices such as valve in pipeline system. Natural gas is very familiar with environmental friendly because it produces clean combustion, lower carbon dioxide as well as lower sulphur oxide and nitrogen oxide emission. The cost of using natural gas is cheaper and produce saving when compared to fuel oil or other petroleum fuel. For a natural gas distribution system, there is a technology called network analysis that has been used to increase the services competency to ensure gas will be supplied to customers continuously at all time. The main consideration in any gas distribution system is to maintain the highest safety standards. This is carried out by ensuring that preventable accidents are avoided at all costs and problems with the distribution network are remedied in a timely fashion.
