Condensate

 

A natural gas liquid with a low vapor pressure compared with natural gasoline, light hydrocarbon and liquefied petroleum gas. Condensate is mainly composed of propane, butane, pentane and heavier hydrocarbon fractions. The condensate is not only generated into the reservoir, it is also formed when liquid drops out, or condenses, from a gas stream in pipelines or surface facilities. Recovered mainly from gas reservoirs, condensates are very similar to light stabilized crude oil and are used as feedstock for oil refining and other petrochemical industries.

 

Condensate has always Gas Heating Value. Gas Heating Value shall mean the amount of heat that is expressed in units of BTU, which is produced by complete combustion of 1 SCF of gas, at a temperature of sixty degrees Fahrenheit and pressure of fourteen and seven tenths pounds per square inch, with air at the same pressure with the gas, and by cooling the result of combustion at initial air and water vapour form in the combustion process condensed in the liquid form.

 

There are many condensate sources, and each has its own unique gas condensate composition. In general, gas condensate has aA�specific gravityA�ranging from 0.5 to 0.8, and is composed of hydrocarbons such asA�propane,A�butane,A�pentane,A�hexane, etc. Natural gas compounds with more carbon atoms (e.g. pentane, or blends of butane, pentane and other hydrocarbons with additional carbon atoms) exist as liquids at ambient temperatures.
