{{#category_index:R|retrograde condensation}} The formation of liquid droplets in a gas as a well is produced and the pressure drops. Some hydrocarbons exist naturally above their critical temperatures in the reservoir; as a result, when pressure is decreased, instead of expanding to form a gas, they condense to form a liquid. See Figure H-11.
