Canadian Crude Quality Technical Association - Project - Crude Oil Compatibility
|Crude Oil Compatibility|
This project was initiated at the close of the Heavy Oil Compatibility (HOC) project. Poll was taken of the existing project members to determine which of the available methods was most commonly used. The most common response was “other” therefore no consistent method was being used among the project participants. This made comparison of data virtually impossible and the development of a guide or recommendation on compatibility was not possible.
Based on the work that was completed in the HOC, the project group found the various compatibility methods used in industry produced representative results however the results of each method were not comparable to each other. There was a desire to identify a method that was simple, cost sensitive, non-proprietary, and easily deployed across the industry.
