cycling plant

1. n. [Production Facilities]
An oilfield installation used when producing from a gas-condensate reservoir. In a cycling plant, the liquids are extracted from the natural gas and then the remaining dry gas is compressed and returned to the producing formation to maintain reservoir pressure. This process increases the ultimate recovery of liquids.
