 Natural gas condensate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Natural gas condensate (usually just condensate) is a low-density, high-API gravity liquid hydrocarbon phase that generally occurs in association with natural gas.
The API gravity of condensate is typically 50 degrees to 120 degrees (density at 60 °F of 780 kg/m³ to 560 kg/m³).
Raw natural gas often contains significant amounts of ethane, propane, butane and isobutane which are also removed and recovered as liquified gases during the processing of the raw gas.

Natural gas, as it is used by consumers, is much different from the natural gas that is brought from underground up to the wellhead.
Natural gas from gas and condensate wells, in which there is little or no crude oil, is termed 'nonassociated gas'.
Natural gas processing consists of separating all of the various hydrocarbons and fluids from the pure natural gas, to produce what is known as 'pipeline quality' dry natural gas.

 Condensation of Gasoline from Natural Gas
Gas, oil, and water are frequently found distributed according to their specific gravities, gas disengaging itself from the finid and rising to the highest point in the beds, and water displacing the oil and finding a resting place as low down as possible.
The yield of gasoline from natural gas is largely determined by the proportion of the vapor of the liquid paraffins in the gas mixture.
Natural gases are soluble in various solvents, such as alcohol, claroline oil, olive oil, kerosene, sperm oil, and rape-seed oil, in proportions depending upon the amount of hither paraffin hydrocarbons present in the gas mixture.

Once a natural gas or oil well is drilled, and it has been verified that commercially viable quantities of natural gas are present for extraction, the well must be 'completed' to allow for the flow of petroleum or natural gas out of the formation and up to the surface.
This condensate is a liquid hydrocarbon mixture that is often separated from the natural gas either at the wellhead, or during the processing of the natural gas.
Since natural gas is lighter than air, once a conduit to the surface is opened, the pressurized gas will rise to the surface with little or no interference.

Natural Gas Condensate: Regulatory Status Drilling fluids, produced waters, and other wastes associated with the exploration, development, and production of crude oil, natural gas, and geothermal energy are exempt from the definition of hazardous waste under 40 CFR Section 261.4(b)(5).
Natural gas condensate is a light hydrocarbon liquid that sometimes forms through condensation of natural gas (hydrocarbon) vapors when natural gas is conveyed through a pipeline.
If the natural gas condensate is generated by transportation or manufacturing operations beyond the production process, it is not exempt and would be regulated as a hazardous waste when discarded if it displays one or more characteristics of hazardous waste (58 FR 15284; March 22, 1993).

 Alexander's Gas & Oil Connections - Kazakhstan reports on natural fuel supplies
The growth of natural fuel supplies over the period was caused by a 1.2-fold increase in oil production (including gas condensate) and 1.3-fold increase in production of natural gas and coal.
Gas distribution on the internal market fell from 57.1 % to 56.3 % against exports which increased from 42.9 % to 43.7 % over the same period of time.
In conclusion it shall be noted that negotiations between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan over supply of Uzbek gas have not been successful for the Kazakhs, and Uzbek gas will be supplied to the Almaty area at $ 50 per thousand cm compared with $ 35 paid for the gas before (43 % increase).

 02/16/1996 - The coverage of the Hazard Communications Standard (HCS) to crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas ...
Donald P. Schnacke (enclosed) which states "...OSHA does not consider oil and gas producers to be chemical manufacturers of the crude oil or natural gas." This is an erroneous statement, and we regret any confusion it may have caused.
In enforcing the current rule, OSHA does not consider oil and gas producers to be "chemical manufacturers" of the crude oil or natural gas.
As employers covered by the expanded standard, which took effect for employers on August 1, 1987, oil and gas producers are, however, required to maintain copies of MSDS for each hazardous accessible during each work shift to employees when they are in their work area(s).
