Hydrocarbon Dew Point Measurement Using Gas Chromatographs

The determination of hydrocarbon dew point (HCDP), the temperature at a defined pressure at which hydrocarbon liquids begin to form, has become critical for the natural gas industry. A big reason is that producers are focusing on extracting heavier gases in traditional and shale plays in an effort to produce more profitable natural gas liquids (NGLs) rather than the natural gas that is selling at historical lows. This has increased the risk of hydrocarbon liquids entering or forming in gas transmission networks if this rich gas is not processed fully. Hydrocarbon liquids in the gas stream can cause hydrate formation, increase compression costs, cause issues with pressure regulat
