Sour Gas is an intermediary oil product, that can occasionally be found in the Oil Biome when there is a heat leakage from Volcanic Biome.

Production[]

  • Sour gas is produced when Petroleum or Naphtha is heated to 540.85 °C (vaporization point + 2 °C).

Usage[]

The only thing that can be done with Sour gas is to cool it. When cooled to -163.5 °C; 67% of its mass becomes Methane and 33% becomes Sulfur. If Methane is reheated it becomes Natural Gas. Due to the extreme nature of the cooling required, Thermo Aquatuners will require at least Super Coolant, so it may be better to ignore Sour Gas until then.

The other options are either: The Anti Entropy Thermo-Nullifier, which still might take some time to reach the target temperature and has to be securely heat-isolated. Or thermo regulators running hydrogen as their coolant, though this requires a very efficient heat exchanger in order to come out with more power than was required to sufficiently cool the sour gas.

Tips[]

  • Sour Gas serves as the transition route from Petroleum to Natural Gas.
  • If Sour Gas at sufficiently low pressure is cooled, 100% of its mass condenses into methane. The exact pressure necessary for this is not currently known, but it seems to be around 5 grams of Sour Gas per tile (or less).
  • Liquid Oxygen and Liquid Hydrogen can theoretically serve as alternatives for Super Coolant, however they are extremely finicky when compared to SC.
