Canadian Crude Quality Technical Association - CCQTA Report Publications
Vapor Pressure Measurement Best Practice

publication added: 2017-06-02

The long awaited Vapor Pressure Measurement Best Practice is now available.

This best practice is compilation of the research, understanding and learning gained through the 5 year CCQTA TVP/RVP project and marks the close of the project.

The Best Practice is available to the public promote education around vapor pressure in crude oil.


Bitumen Dewatering and Volumetric Correction

publication added: 2016-04-19

This project was created to set guidelines for the best practices when preparing bitumen samples for analytical work, as well as assess the applicability of API 12.3 “Calculation of Volumetric Shrinkage Resulting from Blending Light Hydrocarbons and Crude Oil” to blends of bitumen and practical diluents.

The report provides correction factors to API 12.3 for use with bitumen blending with diluents.


TAN Thermometic Testing Report

publication added: 2015-07-28

TAN Thermometric method assessment and comparison to ASTM D664. Report includes the results of the comparison study plus the appendices include the data from two previous ASTM D664 method studies on repeatability and reproducibility on crude oils.


H2S in Crude Measurement Report

publication added: 2015-07-28

This document reports on the results of a project focused on a comparison of existing H2S measurement methods (ASTM D5705, UOP 163, and ASTM D5623) to an adaptation of test method IP 570. The latter method, although not currently validated for crude oil, was prototyped by Stanhope-Seta (UK) and was modified for the complexities of crude oil matrices.
