oil gas,

any of a group of fuel gases produced from oil by exposing it to high temperatures. High-Btu oil gas is so called because of its high heating value; it is often used to supplement natural gas during periods of high demand.

Typically, oil gas consists of methane, ethane, propane, butane, and some of their derivatives.
