For StandardPRODML v2.0

A separator test mimics the processing of produced fluids through one or more stages of separation. Primarily for black-oil and volatile-oil fluid systems, the results of this test are used to optimize the recovery of hydrocarbon products by testing samples at a series of separation stages and settings. This test also measures key parameters, such as formation volume factors and densities, shrinkages, API gravity, and producing GOR that are used both in reservoir engineering calculations and facilities design.
