gas cycling

[′gas ‚sī·kliŋ]
(petroleum engineering)
A petroleum enhanced-recovery process which injects the gas produced with oil back into the oil sand to help produce more oil.

But according to the Office of the Federal Coordinator, the lean gas cycling process has a shelf life in Prudhoe Bay.
Natural Gas Liquids (NGL): Those hydrocarbons in natural gas that are separated from the gas as liquids through the process of absorption, condensation, adsorption, cooling in gas separators, gas processing, or gas cycling plants.
I love this gun, from its proven rotating bolt head and simple gas cycling that functions with about anything you feed it, to its softest-kicking status thanks to the Kickoff recoil dampening system.
The issuance of this patent is a milestone for SustainX," according to president and CEO Thomas Zarrella, "because it solidifies the commercial position of our core technology, isothermal gas cycling in pneumatic cylinders.
The Southern Ocean expeditions are also extremely important as these expeditions offer a unique opportunity to study animal physiological adaptation to low temperatures and high ultraviolet levels and biogeochemical and ecological research on processes controlling productivity, food webs, carbon export, trace gas cycling etc.
The Point Thomson project includes gas cycling facilities designed to recover hydrocarbon liquids and re-inject natural gas back into the reservoir, making Point Thomson the highest-pressure gas cycling operation in the world.
The principle of gas cycling is to drill wells and produce the gas, which contains the condensates, remove the condensate liquids at the surface (this is accomplished by lowering the pressure so the liquids "drop out" of the gas) injecting the gas back underground, and sending the liquids on to Prudhoe Bay.
The Belinda project is being designed as a gas cycling project designed to strip condensate from the field and re-inject the gas for future sales.
These adaptations likely enable them to thrive in dead zones where their combined metabolic activity influences nutrient and greenhouse gas cycling on a global scale," said Steve Hallam, an assistant professor of Microbiology and Immunology.
Field development will include a gas cycling plant designed to produce hydrocarbon liquids and re-inject natural gas back into the reservoir, making Point Thomson the highest-pressure gas cycling operation in the world.
One option, if the gas cycling works as expected, is for the condensate production to be expanded.
After processing, the natural gas will be recycled into the reservoir, making Point Thomson the highest-pressure gas cycling operation in the world.
