Gas Processing and NGL Markets


This course offers an overview of the expanding gas processing sector, which has been impacted by the rapid development of unconventional gas. It explains how rich natural gas is first separated into methane and NGL and transported to fractionation plants, where it is separated into ethane, LPGs (propane and butanes) and natural gasoline. Special attention is given to the various uses for these liquid hydrocarbons, the market prices and economics of various rich gas streams when separated and marketed into individual components and their historical international market supply-demand and pricing profiles.
