Gas condensate

Natural gas condensate is a low-density mixture of hydrocarbon liquids that are present as gaseous components in the raw natural gas produced from many natural gas fields

Gas condensate

Gas condensate condenses out of the raw natural gas if the temperature is reduced to below the hydrocarbon dew point temperature of the raw gas.
The composition of the gas condensate liquids is dependent upon the type of natural gas and the composition of the natural gas.

Gas condensate can be used to make both fuel and plastic.
The main thing is to stabilize it by removing unnecessary admixtures.

Any condensate is obtained after the transition of a gaseous substance into a liquid state due to a drop in pressure or temperature.
There are not only gas fields but also gas condensate fields in the subsurface.
When pressure and temperature decrease as a result of drilling a well, gas condensate – a mixture of liquid hydrocarbons separated from gas – is formed.

There are many condensate sources, and each has its own unique gas condensate composition.
In general, gas condensate has a specific gravity ranging from 0.5 to 0.8, and is composed of hydrocarbons such as propane, butane, pentane, and hexane.

As a rule, this is a transparent fluid, but color can change from straw to almond due to oil admixtures depending on the depth from which it was extracted.
Gas condensate is sometimes called white oil and can be used as fuel.

Main areas of gas condensate processing include fuel and petrochemistry ones.
High-octane petrol, as well as jet, diesel, and boiler fuels are produced from gas condensate.

Petrochemical processing of gas condensate involves obtaining aromatics, olefins, and other monomers (small molecules) that are used in the production of plastics, synthetic rubbers, fibers, and resins.
