  • Gas lift — is one of a number of processes used to artificially lift oil or water from wells where there is insufficient reservoir pressure to produce the well. The process involves injecting gas through the tubing casing annulus. Injected gas aerates the… …   Wikipedia

  • Gas turbine locomotive — A Gas turbine locomotive is a locomotive powered by a gas turbine. The majority of gas turbine locomotives have had electric transmission but mechanical transmission has also been used, particularly in the early days. The advantage of using gas… …   Wikipedia

  • Gas core reactor rocket — Gas core reactor rockets are a conceptual type of rocket that is propelled by the exhausted coolant of a gaseous fission reactor. The nuclear fission reactor core may be either a gas or plasma. They may be capable of creating specific impulses of …   Wikipedia

  • Gas depletion — is the inescapable result of extracting and consuming natural gas since it is a nonrenewable natural resource. The number of years of natural gas left is estimated by the ratio of proven natural gas reserves to the current consumption rate.… …   Wikipedia

  • Gas diffusion method — Gas diffusion refers to a sterilization method for heat, moisture or pressure sensitive items, with the exception of food, drugs or liquids. This method is reliable and economically feasible for smaller loads and is frequently seen in hospitals,… …   Wikipedia

  • Gas compressor — A gas compressor is a mechanical device that increases the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume. Compressors are similar to pumps: both increase the pressure on a fluid and both can transport the fluid through a pipe. As gases are… …   Wikipedia

  • Gas turbine-electric locomotive — DescriptionIn a GTEL a turbine engine, similar to a turboshaft engine, drives an output shaft that is in turn attached to an electrical generator via a system of gears. This in turn powers the traction motors. In overall terms the system is very… …   Wikipedia

  • Conventional oil and natural gas production —   Crude oil and natural gas that is produced by a well drilled into a geologic formation in which the reservoir and fluid characteristics permit the oil and natural gas to readily flow to the wellbore.   U.S. Dept. of Energy, Energy Information… …   Energy terms
