Title: Gas trap

Abstract: The gas trap collects formation gases from oil well fluid flow in real time. Gases are released by the fluid when agitated by an agitating pipe which stirs the fluid flow; the gases are then collected and separated from the fluid to be analyzed. The gas trap does hinder the flow of formation cuttings in the drilling fluid flow line, but allows the formation cuttings to flow around the agitator pipe and out to the sample box.
