The AROMA technology offers a number of applications for the hydrocarbon development industry, from prospecting to production. The ARTRA-171 AROMA instrument is already making a mark in oil-field produced-fluid analysis by providing a 1000x sensitivity improvement over traditional methods of chemical tracer detection with an in-field, unattended capability.
The instruments enhance reservoir intelligence and provide critical information of fluid flow, contact surface, and residual oil fraction to reservoir managers. This information allows for interventions to dramatically reduce lifting and disposal costs by minimizing produced water. Our portfolio of AROMA instruments can reduce analytical costs across business units, including: field operations; pipeline, terminal, and transfer point monitoring; and refining and processing facilities. AROMA instruments also provide opportunities to improve leak detection, process control, emission control, mud logging and exploration in the oil and gas sector.
AROMA instruments offer key capabilities in the following areas:
