Got a question about Natural Gas and liquid dropout. If you had two pipes and they had same volume of natural gas. Both pipes have exactly the same gas composition and pressure. Only thing that is different is temperature. Say one of the pipe is 16 degC and the other is 35 degC. If both these pipes were left to cool towards ambient temperature. Say ambient is 5 deg C. Would there be more liquid drop out from the gas at 35 degC or would both pipes have roughly the same drop out? I'm aware of Hydrocarbon and Water dew points. Main point am trying to ask is does the higher temperature mean there will be more liquid dropout as it has to cool more to reach the ambient temp?
