Oil & Natural Gas Concepts. We hear people talk about liquid petroleum as “oil,” but then we also hear about “condensate.” We will investigate why that is, and other topics, like what makes oil light or heavy. We often hear natural gas described as “methane,” and if the wells produce nothing but methane (dry gas wells), great! However, often we hear that people are “processing” the gas because there are “heavy ends” in it. What are these “heavy ends?” What else is there to know about gas systems, in general? We will discuss background information for understanding oil & gas systems
