Enhance your well testing with representative fluid samples

Surface sampling from the wellhead, separator, and stock tank is performed during most surface well tests. Successful PVT analysis requires fluid samples that represent the original hydrocarbon in the reservoir.

When separator recombination samples are the only available representative samples, the accuracy of the separator flow rate measurements and stability of separation conditions are especially critical for making an accurate determination of reservoir phase behavior from the recombined fluids.
