Unformatted text preview: TA-4PETR 3402Reservoir Rock PropertiesExperiment 3: Fluid SaturationExperiment Date: 28thSeptember 2010Report Submission Date: 5thOctober 2010Submitted By: Raymond HuppPartners Names:Aaron BlaséBrady GrasmickExecutive Summary:In the following experiment entitled “Fluid Saturation”, the students had to clean the core plug for the conventional core analysis by removing the saturated fluids via the solvent Toluene. In the second half of the experiment, we had to use the Dean-Stark distillation technique to determine the amount of saturated fluids in the saturated core. Next we had to weigh the core plug that was saturated in brine and oil. After that, we then placed the core sample into the Soxhlet Extractor and the extractor collected any of the condensed brine and oil. You then use that information, as well as the densities of Toluene, the brine, and the oil, to determine the overall porosity of the core sample in which we were given. Then, we weighed the core sample after it was immersed in Toluene and the water and brine had been extracted. Finally, my group and I placed our saturated core into an oven for 24 hours to fully dry. After that, we took out the core and weighed it; this value was it’s dry weight. Once we had all of this data, we could then complete the rest of the calculations on our data sheet....
