Impact of Non-Hydrocarbons on the Reservoir Fluids Phase Envelope

Written on May 1, 2012 at 10:55 am, by

Hydrocarbons are frequently produced with non-hydrocarbon impurities. The most common include water, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and nitrogen. We have already discussed water-hydrocarbon phase behavior in detail in the October and November 2007 Tips of the Month (TOTM). Since water has a low vapor pressure and is virtually immiscible in the hydrocarbon liquid phase, itContinue Reading
