Upstream Sampling

As part of our Upstream services, Texas OilTech Laboratories is happy to serve the oil and gas industry through surface sampling, as well as bottom hole fluid sampling.

Obtaining a representative sample of fluids from the reservoir allows for an understanding of the characteristics of the reservoir (i.e., barrels of hydrocarbons in place, molar composition of the hydrocarbons) in addition to characterizing the hydrocarbon’s physical properties such as density, viscosity, and compressibility and their variation with temperature and pressure.

At the surface, testing fluids which are reconstituted from the collected samples from the separator also allow for a less costly approach to understanding the characteristics of the reservoir fluids. Indeed, surface sampling, once the produced phases have been separated into tanks consisting of oil, gas, and water, can provide an alternative to the complexities involved with sampling down hole. Once collected, the separator oil and gas samples can even be recombined in a laboratory setting in the proper proportions to recreate the reservoir conditions.
