Fluid Preparation and Compositional Analysis

Overview Library

Our restoration process is an imperative initial step in the laboratory, as fluids must be heated to above reservoir temperature and rocked back and forth to redissolve any precipitated asphaltene and wax particles that may have deposited into solution during sample shipment. After sampling conditioning and restoration, a subsample of each equilibrated live fluid is subjected to compositional analysis to C30+ using an equilibrium flash procedure.

Benefits

  • Confirm laboratory measurements of wax appearance temperature and improve wax deposition prediction
  • Optimize selection of chemical inhibitors to save on intervention costs
