Date: Jun 3, 2012

Batch: CRW-277 - Edmonton

Slightly higher C4's and C5's were evident in this sample of blended condensate, confirmed by the marginally higher RVP of the sample. Apart from these changes, all other characteristics of CRW remain consistent with data compiled to date.


Date: May 1, 2012

Batch: CRW-249 - Edmonton

Sediment concentrations in CRW reached 500 mg/L in May. The density of this sample was 14 kg/m3 higher than the historical average, and the MCR was double the average (0.53 versus 0.25 mg/kg). The light ends analysis indicates a 14 vol% C13+ "tail", consistent with the observed density and MCR values.


Date: Apr 1, 2012

Batch: CRW-242 - Edmonton

The April 01, 2012 sample of CRW condensate blend contained a higher than normal amount of "heavier condensate" resulting in elevated density, MCR, and sediment levels. The simulated distillation results are consistent with the general properties, again indicating higher quantities of "heavier condensate" components. There were no oxygenates detected in the PONAOX-U test. Organo-phoshates were detected in this sample.


Date: Mar 3, 2012

Batch: CRW-242 - Edmonton

Date: Feb 1, 2012

Batch: CRW-232 - Edmonton

Apart from slighter lower than average volatile and C7- mercaptans, the February CRW blended condensate sample was typical composition. The January CRW was tested for olefins by proton-NMR and none were found.


Date: Jan 7, 2012

Batch: CRW-211 - Edmonton

The Edmonton fully blended condensate stream was heavier in January than in December (718.7 kg/m3 versus 705.4). The January sample contained notably lower volatile and C7- mercaptans, and an unusually high organo-phosphorus reading. The compositional analysis results were fairly typical of average stream quality.


Date: Dec 1, 2011

Batch: CRW-206 - Edmonton

The December sample of CRW blended condensate was quite light relative to the October and November samples. The higher pentanes content (35 vol%) appears to be the main contributor, and produced the expected lower MCRT (0.16 wt%) consistent with this density.


Date: Nov 7, 2011

Batch: CRW-197 - Edmonton

Apart from a marginally higher RVP, the November CRW sample displayed typical properties for the historical blended stream.


Date: Oct 1, 2011

Batch: CRW-184 - Edmonton

Slightly increases C7s x C9s and volatile mercaptans were noted for the October sample of CRW. At 1.83 vol%, BTEX was 50% lower than average (versus 4.04 vol%) though it should be noted that this was measured using a GC/FID analysis, and not the PONAOX(U) ASTM D6729 method specified in the Enbridge Condensate Quality Specifications.


Date: Sep 1, 2011

Batch: CRW-171 - Edmonton

The September sample of CRW was slightly lighter than the five year average (704.6 kg/m3 versus 716.9 kg/m3 average). Marginal decreases in C4s and C8s x C10s and increased C5s x C6s and volatile mercaptans.

Batch: CRW-164 - Edmonton

The August sample of CRW was lighter than average, mainly due to the increase in C5s x C6s. Decreases in BTEX, C8s x C10s, C12s x C19s, sulphur, sediment, viscosity, and volatile mercaptans were also detected.


Date: Jul 1, 2011

Batch: CRW-196 - Edmonton

Batch: CRW-074 - Edmonton

The December sample of CRW was much lighter than the majority of samples received in 2010. Density was down (701 kg/m3 versus 719 kg/m3 average), and viscosity and sediment were lower than average. RVP was increased, and no volatile organo-phosphates were detected. The sample's C30+ compositional analysis reflected an increase in C5s x C6s, and slightly lower than average C4s, C8s x C13s, C19s, and C28s x C30s.

Date: Aug 1, 2010

Batch: CRW-040 - Edmonton

The August results for CRW suggested a return to the long-typical properties associated with this condensate stream. Density, sulphur, MCR, viscosity, and RVP were all consistent with average values for CRW. The volatile and C7- mercaptans were, however, noted at marginally above average levels, as was the sediment content. Slight decreases in C27s x C29s and increases in benzene and toluene were also observed. No oxygenates were detected (as measured by PONAOX(U)).


Date: Jul 19, 2010

Batch: CRW-151 - Edmonton

Apart from slight decreases in C25s x C29s and marginally increased mercaptans, the July results for CRW were consistent with the long-term historical values associated with this condensate stream. No olefins were detected.


Date: Jun 7, 2010

Batch: CRW-031 - Edmonton

The June sample of CRW had slightly higher than average density, sulphur, MCR, and viscosity. Lower than average C7- mercaptans were observed. The C30+ compositional analysis indicated a slight decrease in C5s and C7s along with marginally higher than average C11s x C30s.


Date: May 10, 2010

Batch: CRW-027 - Edmonton

The May sample of CRW had slightly higher than average density, MCR, viscosity, RVP and sediment. This sample was tested for volatile organo-phosphorus, and the resulting value was slightly higher than observed in previous samples. The C30+ compositional analysis indicated a slight decrease in C5s along with marginally higher than average C11s x C24s.


Date: Apr 5, 2010

Batch: CRW-022 - Edmonton

While the March sample was much heavier than average (CRW-019, density: 747.3 kg/m³), the April 2010 sample CRW had characteristics more consistent with historical values. Density continued to be on the high end of the average range, while RVP was higher than average. The C30+ compositional analysis indicated a slight decrease in C6s along with marginally higher than average C13s x C14s, C19s x C21s, and C26+ components. No oxygenates were detected in this sample of CRW (as measured by PONAOX(U), with a detection limit of 0.01 wt%).
