Determinacion del contenido de agua


Natural gas and associated condensate are often produced from the reservoir saturated (in equilibrium) with water. In addition, the gas and condensate often contain CO2 andH2S which might require removal. This is frequently accomplished with aqueous solutions such as amines, potassium carbonate, etc. which saturate the gas or condensate with water. Liquid hydrocarbonsmay also contain water downstream of product treaters or upon removal from underground storage. Dehydration is the process used to remove water from natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs), and isrequired to: • prevent formation of hydrates and condensation of free water in processing and transportation facilities, • meet a water content specification, and • prevent corrosion
