Within the context of PVT studies, a saturation test is a test in which bubble or dew point pressure of liquid or a gas system is determined at a constant temperature. The test involves determining pressure/volume relationship of a constant amount of reservoir at constant temperature. In most cases, a saturation point determination can be part of constant composition expansion (CCE) test. This test is considered the most basic PVT study on a live fluid sample.
