What is the best way to analyze light hydrocarbons in Canadian crude?






  • ASTM D8003 is a relatively new method for the analysis crude oil.  It uses a HPLIS valve for sample injection to account for the combination of high pressure and heavy hydrocarbon carbon fraction.


    "Standard Test Method for Determination of Light Hydrocarbons and Cut Point Intervals in Live Crude Oils and Condensates by Gas Chromatography"

  • Hi ,


    One more thing: Reviewing my copy of the method PDF, the authors refer to a Heated Pressurized Liquid Injection System (HPLIS), and refer to an "HPLIS" valve in some places, and "PLIS" in others. Does Agilent sell this part?


    Thanks. - Josh
