Condensate - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The process of increasing the amount of intermediate (C 3 to C 5) and heavy (C 6+ ‏) components in the condensate is called condensate stabilization. This process is performed primarily to reduce the vapor pressure of the condensate so that a vapor phase is not produced upon flashing the liquid to atmospheric storage tanks.

Steam and Condensate - A basic overview of a steam system - The Boiler

Once the steam has been employed in the process, the resulting condensate needs to be drained from the plant and returned to the boiler house. Pressure reduction As mentioned before, steam is usually generated at high pressure, and the pressure may have to be reduced at the point of use, either because of the pressure limitations of the plant, or the temperature limitations of the process.

Condensate McKinsey Energy Insights

Condensate can be processed in a refinery if blended with more conventional crude. Alternatively, it can be sent directly to a condensate splitter for separation into its components. Condensate is typically valued lower than crude oil because of its high light ends content, which yields a lot of lower value LPGs and light naphtha and makes it difficult to process in high volumes in a refinery.
