Natural Gas is found in fields ranging in size from one to several hundred wells. After some preliminary processing, the gas from each well is gathered into a gas gathering system and delivered to a central processing plant, where acid gases and valuable ethane, propane, butane or natural gasoline still contained in the gas are removed. A gas gathering system is the pipeline and facilities that accumulate and transport natural gas from a well to an acceptance point of a transportation pipeline.
