Gas Condensate Field
A field consisting of one or more reservoirs containing a mixture of gases at reservoir temperature and pressure, but which at normal temperature and pressure separates out into natural gas and Condensates. A gas condensate field is richer in liquids than a Dry Gas field but there is no precise point at which one becomes the other. Sometimes a reservoir will be produced primarily to obtain the condensate; the gas may be re-injected, used as a secondary product, e.g. for LNG production or, particularly in areas remote from the market, flared. The liquid in a gas condensate field is often more valuable than the gas. See also “Gas Cycling”.
