Yes. But condensates have not always contributed upwards of 50% of the liquid volume as they do today. That extra energy required to convert a diffuse gaseous component into a liquid fuel is quite expensive, energetically speaking. As with all unconventionals (including, but not limited to, NGC, shale, ethanol, TDP, etc.) the net energy returned is constantly dropping . . . toward ZERO.OilFinder2 wrote:ATTENION BRATTICUS: Condensate has ALWAYS been included in the EIA's (and everyone else's) "crude oil" production figures. That bumpy plateau everyone here keeps talking about has ALWAYS included condensate.
Thank you, have a nice day, and please pay attention to stuff like this in the future.
Such is peak.
