As development of oil and gas expand into very high-pressure and high-temperature reservoirs, there is increasing interest in the development of nanomaterials to withstand these severe conditions. This paper reports on the comparison of the temperature behavior of nanomaterials used in the sensitivity analysis of hydrocarbon gases. The nanocomposite of tin dioxide (SnO2) and zinc oxide (ZnO) were fabricated into sensor devices by the radio frequency sputtering method, and used for the characterization of the sensitivity behavior of ethanol and methanol vapor. At different concentrations of the gases, the response of the sensor devices were analyzed at operating temperatures of 150 to 350 ℃. Detailed analysis of the metal oxides thin film morphology and charge transportation of the sensor were collaborated with the response sensitivity in the target gases. Based on the behaviors of these nanomaterials, applications to oil and gas development could be adapted in residual petroleum reservoirs development.
