Just harvested some gas and was curious if it was more cost effective to simply sell it in its raw form or refine it?

If I read correctly, to "refine" it, you actually create a reaction in a silo. One silo for each type of gas.

Can the finished product be put back into my Corporate Hanger array or does it have to be stored in a silo?

You must have separate silos of the correct type for both the products and reactants, connected to the reactor in the POS management interface (physically, they can be located anywhere within the forcefield).

Generally, as a rule of thumb, with items which require reacting, doing so adds value to them, i.e. the reacted products are usually worth more on the market than the sum of their individual parts, due to the effort of reacting required.
This of course does not take into consideration the cost of running a starbase. If you already have one, and have the capacity to add a reactor and appropriate silos, then you may find doing so to be worthwhile.

Thank you, is there a WIKI anywhere on what gasses can be reacted into what? I know it has to do with T3 production, but I am confused on the whole process.

The official wiki is one version of PI out of date but still usefull. Just ignore everything related to extractors. See the links section at the end too !
The EVE University wiki is pretty good.
Their planetary commodities section gives an overview of all the different materials and products and what they are used for.

EDIT : Apparently got confused as I just posted in a PI thread Cool Still, good info for PI gas lol

there are 2 types of gas

fullerites in WH space for t3 production
and other gas in k-space used for boosters

doing anything with gas is not possible in high sec as it can not be done in a station and you are not allowed to anchor the POS structures needed

if you do not have the infrastructure to use it i suggest sell the gas
some of it can be rather profitable

We have a POS Set up, was just curious if it was worth it to go through all the work to do reactions.

1. Open Excel
2. Open market browser

Nobody is going to feed you the answer, the eve economy is also dynamic so certain reactions can be more profitable than others.
