Non-associated natural gas is the gas that is found in a hydrocarbon deposit and whose composition is of very light hydrocarbons, mainly methane, and which do not form a liquid phase at the reservoir pressure and temperature conditions.
The production of wells such as Cerro Azul No. 4, Potrero del Llano 4, Dos Bocas and San Diego de la Mar, gave the region the name of Faja de Oro. The first one produced 250,000 barrels a day.
