The experiment is known as Reid’s vapour pressure test and the pressure measured is reported as Reid vapour pressure (RVP). 8°C. 4. In fact, commercial LPG may not have a uniform composition of only propane and butane, but may contain an amount of lighter gases in traces and also contain some olefinic gases obtained from petrochemical plants. The presence of mercaptans and hydrogen sulfide causes corrosion to vessels, pipelines, and joints, which may be further aggravated by the presence of moisture.
The hydraulic pumping method employs a special type of tubing that consists of two tubes. The inner tube is of a larger diameter in which the plunger or the diaphragm pump is lowered into the borehole. The plunger or the rod of the diaphragm is forced by pumping a liquid over it in a reciprocating manner. Oil is discharged through the outer pipe through its annular space and is delivered to the surface tank. This method does not require lowering any electrical cable and no wire for actuating the plunger.
However, extrapolation from the land surface in the vicinity of the sea can be accurately predicted, but is not applicable for the deep sea area. A radioactive or gamma-ray survey is also used in the exploration. 5 11 GEOCHEMICAL METHODS Inorganic contents of surface or shallow cuttings or core are sampled and analysed for inorganic materials, such as salts and carbonates, which are frequently associated with hydrocarbons. Organic contents or the presence of organic matter is detected by heating a sample in a crucible and the loss of mass of the sample is an indication of the presence of organic matter.
