During the second half one had to determine the saturation of the in saturated fluids in the sample using the Dean-Stark distillation technique. In order to begin the experiment obtain the core sample form the lab instructor. Weigh the plug sample that has already been saturated in oil and brine by the instructor. Once the weight is recorded the next step in the process is to place the plug sample into the Soxhlet Extractor. Any fluids collected from the extractor must be properly disposed into the designated containers. Pour roughly 150ml toluene into the flask. Place the core sample into the sample holder, remember not to the drop the core sample into the sample holder. Once the core sample is in the container next step is to cover the flask with the aluminum foil. Meanwhile core sample is in the container next step is to cover the flask with the aluminum foil....
