New laboratory and field validated environmentally friendly gas tracers

Cyclopropane has been studied and validated as a gas tracer in the laboratory and in the field. The compound survived at reservoir like conditions and has flow behaviour similar to the present perfluorocarbon gas tracers. It is environmentally friendly. It adds to the list of environmentally friendly tracers for usage in oil exploration and recovery. It should be pointed out that none of the existing until now non-radioactive gas tracers was considered acceptable since these have been implicated as important anthropogenic contributors to global warming and long-term climate change. Hence, the benefits to the environment are indisputable. The other gas tracer candidates are not presently available in the market and have to be synthesized before they can be tested.
