This by product, which foe years ha's been wasted in many districts, now Is proving ft most valuable addition to resources. Recent developments in long distance transportation of natural gas are regarded as one of the most significant achievements, not only In the oil business, but In Industry In general. The trend to natural pas has come about through the revision of Ideas as to the amount of oil still available in the United States. There have been discoveries of new lields. and of oil- bearing sands at greater depths In old Helds and these show that previous estimates of supplies were far too conservative. New methods employed in these fields nre estimated to have added 600,000.000 barrels to two Pennsylvania fields nlono. With such supplies available, producers are turning to by-products for additional profits and natural gaa is one of the most valuable of tlieso. Major Industrial areas which formerly had to depend on solid or liquid fuels, have now been connected with natural gas lines and the demand for TMfi A1.TOONA true fuel has been atnply demonstrated. According to oil experts, the value of gas Is greatest when it Is 1 delivered at the surface in conjunction with oil, since gas is of the greatest importance as a propulsive agent for oil in bringing it to the surface. Conservative estimates place the 1930 natural gas distribution to consumers at over 2,000,000,000,000 cubic feet. In addition large quantities will be used for fuel in the oil fields, and other supplies will be devoted to the production Of Carbon black. The principal cost of the distribution of natural gas over, long distances is the cost of pipe. This is leading to consideration of the use of smaller diameter pipe of greater thickness, capable of withstanding pressure of l.BOO pounds to the square Inch. The first, lines were of large diameter and pressures were held down to 400 to 500 pounds. Some concerns are using telescope pipe. That is, they build their lines of small, thick pipe near the source where pressure Is greatest, and Increase the size and decrease the thickness as distance lowers the pressure. Improved methods of welding also have decreased costs, aa had the use of tractors and machinery fof handling: the pipe lengths In laying The extent to which the gas section of the petroleum Industry has progressed is shown in the dependence -which steel companies now are placing on pipe orders. Demand for pipe has been an outstanding feature In the steel trade in the last fortnight. Some of the largo makers of pipe are alre'ady booked for four to six Months In advance. Some public utilities have placed tentative orders, even before working out all the details of their distribution lines. ~~ GOES ON TRIP AlinoAO.
