raw natural gas

1. n. [Production Facilities]
Gas produced from the well, unprocessed natural gas or the inlet natural gas to a plant. The raw gas still contains natural gas liquids (condensate, natural gasoline and liquefied petroleum gas), water and some other impurities such as nitrogen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and helium. The raw gas must be processed in a gas processing plant to make the gas commercial.
