Transcript gases consist chiefly of methane, and partly of ethane, while wet gases, in addition to methane, also contain heavier gaseous or vaporous carbohydrates, e. g., butane, pentane, etc. These gases are easily condensed, yielding very high grades of gasoline. The chief uses of combustible gases are: (1) as fuel, (2) in the extraction of gasoline, (3) as a lighting medium, and (4) in the manufacture of soot. Although we have an Ail-Union combination for the oil and gas industries, our gas industry is very feebly developed despite its great possibilities. We have huge stores of gas connected with oil. Had we possessed a more or less accurate idea of the real reserves of oil in our country, and of the immensity of the gas factor, (the quantity of gas, in cubic metres, which escapes in the process of exploitation from oil beds per ton of oil exhausted), as well as of the gradual modification of this factor in the course of time, wTe would have been able to form at least an approximate idea of the gas resources from our oil deposits. The Grozny oilfields are notable for having the smallest "gas factor," 3.5 to 4 per cent, or 35 to 40 cubic metres per ton. The gas factor in the "C" layer of the Maikop oilfield is very high, reaching to 40 per cent, or 400 cubic metres per ton. The gas factor of the Baku oil terrain occupies a middle position between the Maikop and Grozny fields^ being usually taken as 20 per cent, or 200 cubic metres per ton. If we multiply the totals of our various oil deposits given above by the gas factor, we get an approximate idea of the gas stores contained in our oil resources. It should be noted, however, that the subject of gas factors, which is important not only in estimating our gas resources, but also in ascertaining the role played by gas in the exploita- 44
