Using a high-resolution system called electron tomography, researchers probed a tiny sample of kerogen to determine its internal structure. At left, the sample as seen from the outside, and at right, the detailed 3-D image of its internal pore structure. Image: Courtesy of the researchers

Structure of fossil-fuel source rocks is finally decoded

For the first time, MIT scientists and elsewhere have captured three-dimensional images of kerogen’s internal structure. These images ought to permit more precise expectations of how much...

Efficient New Technology to Dehydrate Natural Gas

Dehydration of natural gas involves removal of water from them. Natural gas must be dehydrated to remove water vapor. Water vapor causes the formation of hydrates,...
