About Natural Gas Liquids

About Natural Gas Liquids and the NGL Sector

Natural gas liquids – often abbreviated NGLs — are hydrocarbons in the same family as natural gas and crude oil, composed solely of carbon and hydrogen. The NGL product family includes LPG, natural gasoline (condensate), propane, butane, ethane, ethene, propene, butadiene, pentene and pentane. These products can serve a wide range of purposes, from heating and petrochemical feedstock, to energy recovery from wells and oil sands. Natural gasoline liquids can also be blended to produce fuel for combustion engines.

In recent years, NGL-rich parts of supply basins have earned increased attention from oil and natural gas producers due to higher crude oil prices. Natural gas liquids production has reached an all-time high in the United States, creating a need for improved NGL processing, supply and distribution capabilities nationally.

Natural Gas Liquids Storage

In north America, storage of natural gas liquids is necessary since NGL volumes produced often exceed the regional pipeline takeaway capacity and processing capacity. In larger volumes, NGLs are primarily stored as pressurized liquid in underground containers, though some geologies support above-ground tanks.
The Appalachian region – a North American hot spot for NGL extraction in North America – has historically been dependent on storage outside the region to satisfy peak-season NGL demand.
