Reservoir Fluid Properties PEEG 216 Summary of Last Class Compositional analysis of petroleum fluids is complicated. Pressurised samples are usually separated into sub- samples to facilitate analysis. Gas chromatography (GC) is used extensively, but distillation and other analyses can also be involved. Analyses are simplified by grouping hydrocarbons between the “normal” (straight chain) components. Some particular components may be used as “genetic” indicators of the origin of the fluid. Heavy fractions are characterised by cryoscopy and density.

Reservoir Fluid Properties PEEG 216 Composition Conversions Compositions have units and can be inter- converted. Pure = 100 mol % = 1 000 000 ppm = mole fraction of 1 (all are based on molecules) 100 ppm = ? However, 50 mol% ≠ 50 wt% due to differences in molar masses.
