|Significance and Use|
5.1ï¿½This test method determines methane (nC1) to hexane (nC6), cut point carbon fraction intervals to nC24 and recovery (nC5.2ï¿½Equation of state calculations can be applied to variables provided by this method to allow for additional sample characterization.
1.1ï¿½This test method covers the determination of light hydrocarbons and cut point intervals by gas chromatography in live crude oils and condensates with VPCRNote 1:ï¿½As described in Test Method .
1.2ï¿½Methane (C1.3ï¿½This test method may be used for the determination of cut point carbon fraction intervals (see ) of live crude oils and condensates from initial boiling point (IBP) to 391 ï¿½C (nC24). The nC24 plus fraction is reported.
1.4ï¿½Dead oils or condensates sampled in accordance with may also be analyzed.
1.5ï¿½The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.5.1ï¿½Exceptionâ€”Where there is no direct SI equivalent such as tubing size.
1.6ï¿½This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.7ï¿½This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
