Natural Gas According to Law No. 9478/97 (the Petroleum Act): "Natural gas is the portion of oil that exists in the gaseous phase or in solution in the oil reservoir in original condition and remains in a gaseous state at room temperature, (normal temperature and pressure)".Natural Gas Composition
•Natural gas is found underground across fields of oil, by accumulations in porous rocks. It is isolated from the outside by impermeable rocks and can be associated or not to oil depots.
•Natural gas composition can vary greatly depending on factors related to the field where the gas is produced as well as to its production, conditioning, processing, and transportation.
•The quality of natural gas is determined by its set of components that are heavier than ethane:
oIf the content of components heavier than ethane exceeds percent of the gas, it is considered rich.
oIf its components heavier than ethane are less than percent of the gas, it is considered poor.
oIf the components heavier than ethane are between and percent, the gas is considered of median quality.Table of Contents
