sweet natural gas
Explanation:
..."Sweet" natural gas is colorless, odorless and non-toxic. An odourant called mercaptan is added as sweet gas is fed into the distribution system. This odourant, which makes the gas smell like rotten eggs, is an important safety measure because it provides a distinct smell that is detectable by the human nose well before the concentration of methane would be dangerous."
