SIFT-MS delivers high-throughput solutions that eliminate bottlenecks of the energy industry including prospecting, extraction, processing, environmental monitoring and product purity testing.
Most fuels and many modern products contain components that originate from hydrocarbons and other organic compounds occurring in crude oil. New commercial fuels, such as hydrogen, must meet stringent purity standards to prevent catalyst poisoning and premature degradation. SIFT-MS is the first technology that can quantify the full breadth of light-to-medium hydrocarbons and other VOCs in real-time, at the required concentrations, and with wide linear and dynamic ranges. SIFT-MS instruments also present a breakthrough in the detection, quantitation and tracing of petroleum hydrocarbons.
How we operate in the Petrochemical industry
Industry issueHigh-penetration-rate drilling technologies present a challenge to current mud-gas analysis techniques: they are either too slow (gas chromatography (GC)), or do not quantify a complete range of compounds (photometric and electrochemical techniques).
Competitive benefitSelected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) overcomes these limitations, identifying and quantifying volatile organic compounds (VOCs) directly from mud-tank headspace gas in real-time to the mid-part-per billion (ppb) concentration range. Hence SIFT-MS makes real-time hydrocarbon analysis viable in high penetration rate drilling operations.
Industry impactThe ability to quantify the volatile organics present in drilling mud, including the heavier hydrocarbon fractions, provides easy identification of hydrocarbon recirculation. Moreover, SIFT-MS minimizes both sample pre-treatment and calibration requirements, providing the ultimate solution for rapid, broad-spectrum hydrocarbon analysis at the well-side.
