"Stranded gas" is an all-encompassing term. For the purpose of this article, stranded gas is any hydrocarbon-based gas that is uneconomic to deliver to market. This includes associated and flared/vented gas, and gas that is re-injected purely for regulatory compliance rather than for reservoir-pressure maintenance. Some of the factors that determine when a pipeline is profitable include resource volume, transport route, regulatory environment, market size and demand growth. Sometimes, excess reserves can be considered stranded, since these would require a paltry delivery rate to avoid oversupply of local markets. Negative economics can also be due to technical complexity or expense associated with recovering/gathering the gas. Stranded gas is essentially gas that is wasted or unused. Whenever one thinks of stranded gas, the primary goal is an alternative to pipeline transport.
