Effect of extended heavier hydrocarbon fraction (Cn+) composition on optimum surface separation pressure and temperature

Hydrocarbon fluids are made up of defined components which include N2, CO2, H2S, C1, C2, C3, iC4, iC5, and C6  and undefined components known as heavier fractions (Cn+) which include paraffinic, naftenic and aromatic compounds. The hydrocarbons are separated on the surface before they are sent to the market. There are several factors affecting the hydrocarbons surface separation condition which include; pressure,...
