Conducts phase behaviour and PVT studies for black oils and gas condensates.
These studies include:
i. Reservoir determination of gas-oil ratios, saturation pressures, shrinkage studies,
ii. Conducting of separator tests, constant composition expansion test, differential liberation tests, constant volume differential tests, fluid compositional analysis.
iii. Troubleshoot and routine maintenance of PVT systems and recombination cell.
Preparation of field sampling equipment and conducts field hydrocarbon fluid sampling. Performs data calculations and prepares reports for Laboratory Manager.
Some of my working equipment include Vinci mercury-free Fluid Eval, 15000psi, 175 deg. C, visuall PVT system, Vinci Recombination System, Vinci positive displacement pump, Vinci equilibrium flash separator, Vinci liquid condensation trap, Vinci electromagnetic viscometer (EV 1000), Vinci recombination cell apparatus (RCA 1000), Vinci sample restoration apparatus, Vinci gas booster, Vinci cooling system, Agilent 7890A Series GC Custom Extended gas Analyzer, Agilent 7890A Series GC Custom HC Oil Analyzer, Cryette molecular weight tester and Viscometer for Stock Tank Oil (SVM 3000), Proserv micro field transfer bench, Proserv surface sampling kit.
I have been significantly involved in all the PVT equipment procurement, and commissioning and have produced reproducible results.
