This paper describes the successful development and application of industrial gas turbines using alternate gaseous fuels. These fuels include liquid petroleum gas, medium-Btu fuels derived from biodegradation of organic matters found in sanitary landfills and liquid sewage, and ultra-low Btu fuels from oilfield fireflood operations. The analyses, mathematical modelling and rig verification performed in the development are discussed. The effects of burning these alternate fuels on the gas turbine and its combustion system are compared to those of using standard natural gas fuel. Gas turbine development required to use other alternative gaseous fuels is also assessed.
