Natural Gas Liquids

Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) are derivatives of natural gas and are used extensively as fuels, feedstock for petrochemical plants, and in the production of plastic.  Natural Gas Liquid production associated with nonconventional shale drilling has created a surge in the availability of liquids and furthered the need to handle these liquids properly.

Natural Gas Liquids are found naturally within natural gas formations but change physical states (gas, liquid, or solid) depending upon the pressure and temperature.  The state within the reservoir at very high pressures and temperatures may be different than the same composition at the surface of the well.  Safe handling and appropriate processing of Natural Gas Liquids requires intimate knowledge of phase behavior and control.

Mustang Sampling is an industry pioneer and a leading provider of Analytically Accurate® systems for Natural Gas Liquids.  Each product or system is specially designed to transport a natural gas liquid sample from the pipeline to the analyzer(s) without changing the composition of the sample itself, regardless of phase.  Mustang Sampling achieves this by controlling the phase transition using a specially designed vaporizing system.  This “representative” sample is then used for the analysis of the natural gas liquid composition for monetary value (custody transfer), plant balance, compliance, or safety.

Expanding Role of Analyzers in Natural Gas Measurement

Advances in analyzer technologies along with the presence of renewables and hydrogen in natural gas pipelines has created a renewed interest in natural gas analysis.

How To Tackle The Challenges Of LNG, NGL Sampling

If not controlled properly, liquids and gases can coexist within the process and sampling systems, each moving with a different velocity through the system, making it impossible to deliver a representative sample to the analyzer.
