When methane gas (CH4) combines with oxygen (O2) they combust to produce carbon dioxide (CO2) and

water (H2O). We write the balanced chemical equation for this reaction as:

CH4 (g) + 2O2(g) CO2(g) + 2H2O(l) + Energy

Source: Virtual Chembook, Elmhurst College

Using this equation, we can find how much product (CO2 and H2O) are produced for some input of reactant

(CH4 and O2). We are interesting in knowing specifically how much water is produced for some input of

methane gas. Since pounds, cubic feet, and gallons are more difficult units to work with than Metric units,

we will start with grams and moles and convert at the end to Standard units.

Stoichiometry

Below are the stoichiometry calculations showing how many grams of water is produced from 1 gram of

methane.

This table lays out a visual way to think about stoichiometry problems. The orange arrows show the flow of

our calculations, starting with our input of 1.00 gram of CH4.

.12467 mol

We start with 1.00g of CH4. We need to convert this quantity into moles so we know how many moles we

have available to react. We convert using the molar mass of CH4.

1.00g/(16.042 g/mol) = .042336 mol of CH4 (in 1 gram)

We need to take into account the coefficient of H2O when we react our .042336 mol of CH4.

(.042336 mol CH4)*2 = .12467 mol H2O

CO 80261 • Phone: 303.COGA. We use the same calculation pattern as above: 453.5506 mol*(18.71 gallons H2O Every pound of methane burned yields 3.70751. If we start with an initial volume of CH4. but now with 1 pound of CH4. we want to upscale our input and convert to pounds and gallons. how much H2O will the reaction produce? How much water is produced from the combustion of 1 BCF of methane?

To do this.785 L/G 1000cm^3 = 1000mL = 1L We will follow the same stoichiometry calculations as we did with 1 gram of CH4.759 g H2O 1018.9 mL = 1. we will need several conversions listed below.25 g H2O Since grams are not the best unit of measurement for the quantities of CH4 and H2O that a gas well produces. rounded to 2.7 gallons of water.0362 • Fax: 303.4118 g = 1 gal Density of water @ STP: 1g/cm^3 1lb = 453.12467 mol*(18.0209 L) = 3.

Assumptions Since volume and weight are not interchangeable measurements. we can produce almost 42 million kilograms of water.

Density of a compound generally varies with temperature and pressure. the above calculations can be followed using the accurate density for those conditions.539. CH4 (g) + 2O2(g) CO2(g) + 2H2O(l) We can quantify how much water is produced in this reaction using stoichiometry and a lot of conversions!

We can now apply this ratio to any initial input of methane to calculate the output of water from a given natural gas well.
