Solution Gas, unlike Cap Gas is Associated Gas dissolved in oil. Produced inevitably with the oil and separated from it at the well-head. Solution Gas production is thus a function of oil production and of the Gas/Oil Ratio, which changes over the life of the field. It is therefore an unreliable gas supply and difficult to market, unless the buyer or seller have large alternative sources. Has in the past largely been flared or vented but this is becoming less acceptable, largely for environmental reasons, although is still not uncommon in remoter areas. Separation is often carried out in two or three stages to maintain the gas pressure for pipelining as far as possible. Gas from the final stage separator is at low pressure and is normally used in the field or on the platform during production. The gas may be re-injected into the reservoir if it will not break through into the oil wells.
