  • MLPs And The Growth Of Natural Gas Infrastructure [View article]
    Natural-gas processing is a process whereby raw natural gas is processed by seperating various non-methane hydrocarbons and fluids to produce what is known as pipeline quality dry natural gas.
    Natural-gas processing begins at the well head. The composition of the raw natural gas extracted from producing wells depends on the type, depth, and location of the reservior and the geology of the area. Oil and natural gas are often found together in the same reservoir. The natural gas produced from oil wells is generally classified as associated gas meaning that the natural gas is associated with or dissolved in crude oil. Natural gas production absent any association with crude oil is classified as dry nat gas.
    Most natural-gas production contains, to varying degrees, methane gas and raw NGLs. Although they exist in a liquid state at underground pressures, these molecules will become gaseous at normal atmospheric pressure.
    After being pipelined to an NGL plant (one of the largest is located at Mont Belview, Texas) the raw NGL is processed into propane, butane, ethane and pentane. This can be further processed in downstream plants or used as feedstock for chemicals manufacturing and for cooking and home heating.
