    Equipments Details


    Determining hydrocarbon’s molecular composition is the ultimate step of PVT analysis and is achieved via Gas Chromatography (GC). The results of the analysis can be utilized to select the most appropriate production facilities (e.g. separators, sulfur removal, pipelines) and estimating the overall potential economic profit of a project. Following the live oil sample’s flash separation process at ambient conditions in a gasometer, liquid and gas samples are collected and transferred into the GC Analyzer. The analysis of hydrocarbon gas is carried out using specially configured gas chromatographs. A naturally occurring mixture of gaseous hydrocarbons, consists primarily of methane but can include other hydrocarbons (C1-C4 chain length hydrocarbons) and small amounts of other impurities such as O2, N2, CO2, H2, He and sulfur containing hydrocarbons). The Agilent Natural Gas Chromatograph is custom configured for the compositional analysis of Natural Gas containing Hydrocarbons up to C12, Oxygen, and Nitrogen & Carbon Dioxide. Specifications: Complies with ASTM Method D 1945/ GPA 2286
