Petroleum Production Engineering Laboratory

Production conditions are varying from one area to another. These conditions are affecting mainly the physical properties of H-C. In the production laboratory, physical properties measurements of H-C are taken according to the American Petroleum Institute standard (API), such as, fluid density, viscosity, surface tension, interfacial tension, flash point, vapour pressure, pour point, water content in crude oil, total salts content of crude oil by conductivity and corrosion.
