1922 Journal of Industrial & Engineering Chemistry  
Gas from the Terrebonne Gas Field, about twenty miles below Houma, La., is piped to the town for use as a fuel. The condensate which forms in the pipes is the subject of the investigation recorded in this paper. It differs from ordinary casinghead gasoline in boiling point and other properties.
