The Crude Oil Characterization Research Study (funded by US DOE, DOT, and Transport Canada: http://energy.gov/fe/articles/crude-oil-characteristics-research, https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2018/02/the-great-crude-oil-fireball-test/552029/), seeks to understand the crude oil property differences between conventionally produced and tight oils. Recent activities analyzed the effects of sampling containers/techniques (ASTM D3700, GPA 2174, ASTM D8009, ASTM 4057) and sampling locations (Texas vs. North Dakota) on crude oil thermophysical property measurements. Different compositional measurement techniques (GPA 2103, GPA 2177, ASTM D7900, ASTM D7169, ASTM D8003, GOR flash gas) have been used to calculate these properties as well, providing insight into the features and limitations of the methodologies.
