Crude Oil & Condensate Sampling

Crude Oil Sampling

Crude oil sampling for custody transfer, fiscal, allocation or quality measurement purposes should be performed in accordance with sampling standards of ISO 3171, ASTM D 4177, API 8.2 and IP 6.2. These standards dictate a number of key design issues and steps that must be considered to ensure a system fully complies with the standards.

Over 60% of world crude oil is valued on the basis of equipment. Aquip Systems manufacture a range of fully engineered systems and products for crude oil sampling applications. All products comply with the standards when installed and operated in accordance with the standards. All systems are supplied with a performance warranty that guarantees compliance with the sampling standards even if proved by water injection.

Crude oil sampling systems can be supplied for installation on offshore platforms and FPSOs as well as terminals, pipelines, jetties and locations with SPMs.

Accuracy of various Crude Oil Samplers

  • A probe based in-line sampler offers the lowest accuracy and highest uncertainty and is the simplest system available.
  • A bypass (or fast) loop sampler has a higher accuracy, lower measurement uncertainty and lower maintenance.
  •  A bypass or probe based sampler should be used in conjunction with a suitable mixing system if required.
  • A CoJexit sampler offers the highest accuracy and lowest measurement uncertainty and represents the state of the art in sampling technology.

Both fast loop and CoJexit systems also offer the option for on-line instruments, such as densitometers, to be integrated as part of the sampling loop. This creates a combined sampling and analysis package that provides continuous liquid density measurement, which can be fed to a metering system for mass transfers.

Jiskoot Systems for Oil Sampling

Cameron recently acquired Jiskoot Quality Systems, making it the leading supplier of multiphase blending equipment to the world’s oil and gas industry. With over 40 years’ experience in in-line blending, Jiskoot is the system of choice for liquid processing of all kinds.

Cameron’s crude oil sampling systems and products are designed and manufactured drawing on years of experience of crude oil sampling. They offer you the peace of mind that the equipment that you use every day will fully comply with international best practice. Jiskoot systems are simple and reliable to use, easy to maintain and in the event of a dispute provide irrefutable evidence to support your measurement system.

Condensate Sampling

Condensate sampling for custody transfer, fiscal, allocation or quality measurement purposes should be performed in accordance with sampling standards of ISO 3171, ASTM D 4177, API 8.2 and IP 6.2. These standards dictate a number of key design issues and steps that must be considered to ensure a condensate sampling system fully complies with the standards.

We manufacture a range of fully engineered systems and products for condensate sampling applications with each system designed to avoid pressure drops and the potential ‘flashing-off’ of condensate to gas. Our Jiskoot brand complies with the standards when installed and operated in accordance with the standards and all systems are supplied with a performance warranty that guarantees compliance with the sampling standards even if proved by water injection.

Jiskoot condensate samplers and products are available for custody transfer, fiscal and allocation measurement as well as sampling for calibration of multiphase flow meters. Systems can be supplied for installation on offshore platforms and FPSOs as well as terminals, pipelines, jetties and locations with SPMs. Condensate sampling systems can be designed specifically for high-pressure operating environments and sample receivers chosen for handling elevated RVP hydrocarbons.

CoJexit  Sampling Systems

Both probe sampler and bypass loop system are available for condensate sampling depending on the accuracy and uncertainty required. Bypass or fast loop and CoJexit sampling systems have the lowest measurement uncertainty and highest accuracy. An in-line probe sampler system offers lower accuracy and higher uncertainty at a lower cost.
