Natural Gas Liquids (NGL's) is the term used to define the mixture of commingled products after field processing at a well site or natural gas extraction plant; whereas, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG's) is the term used to collectively refer to the purity products extracted from the mixture.

Many processors and refiners do not separate the NGL mixes into their purity products because the amounts they produce do not justify the expense of constructing and operating a LP Gas fractionation plant. However, each of the different components has found a unique home in the refining and energy industries as a purity product. Furthermore, the highest economic netback can only be obtained when the LP Gas is separated into its individual components.

enerkon Resources purchases and sells these purity products: ethane, propane, isobutane, normal butane, and condensates.
