The present manual written by two prominent industry experts is intended for all people engaged in the process of sampling an subsequent analysis of the crude oil after their production and stabilization. The content of the publication will be particularly useful to the operators of the tankers carrying crude oil and to the workers of the terminals storing oil. It will also present practical interest to the lab personnel assigned responsibility for the characterization of the crude oil and to the refiners processing the oil.
And, of course, the traders dealing with sale or acquisition of the crude oil will also appreciate the book. The volume opens with the compact but comprehensive glossary of terms used in the industry when dealing with crude oil. The first section is devoted to the oil sampling including manual sampling and sample transfers, mixing systems and storage of samples, auto-sampling and mixing methods etc.
The second section is the inspection assays - here the readers will find information about the API gravity and density, water and sediment, salt content and fluidity, carbon residue, total acid number, characterization factor, microwave digestion, trace elements, nitrogen content etc. The other sections of the volume deal with the quality assurance, compatibility and stability of crude oil, using oil and fuel and other important topics. Three appendixes will give you some additional information.
