Task 2 - Evaluate effects of hydrocarbon-rich matrices on PFT capture and quantification in gas samples.

When sorbent tubes are used to trap PFTs, it is not clear if the sorption of different perfluorocarbon compounds is affected by the presence of volatile organic compounds found in petroleum liquids and natural gas typical of EOR and EGR reservoirs. Determining the effect of hydrocarbon-rich matrices on the trapping and quantification of PFTs in sorbent tubes is the main focus of this task.
