Field Transfer Unit

The KAZPETROTEST LLP Field Transfer Unit is used to transfer samples from the bottom hole sampling tool into sample shipping cylinders.

Sample validation and field saturation pressures can be measured using calibrated test gauges. The sample chamber is secured in a sample transfer / agitation stand. The sample contact pressure is determined to ensure the sample is above reservoir pressure.  If the sample pressure is found to have dropped while being recovered to surface, then the pressure is increased to greater than reservoir pressure using the water injection pump. The sample chamber is heated to reservoir temperature, while maintaining reservoir pressure, and is then agitated. It is vital that this process is carried out prior to, and during, transfer to a shipping cylinder to ensure that the sample is maintained in a state representative of the reservoir fluid. The entire sample is transferred at reservoir pressure and temperature into single-phase or standard sample cylinders for shipment.
