Course description

Reservoir Fluid Properties: Preparation for Reservoir Engineering and Simulation Studies - In-house training by PetroSkills

This course can be conducted on site at your location exclusively for your staff. This course gives the non-reservoir engineer a better understanding of reservoir engineering practices and limitations. The course is designed to provide a good understanding of reservoir engineering processes, the required data, and the limitations on the engineers' analysis and interpretations. The course also provides persons who are already well trained in the other upstream petroleum industry technical disciplines with an understanding of the current state-of-the-art practice of reservoir engineering. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

This in-house training course has the following outcomes:
  • Identify the type of fluid in a particular reservoir and in general how that fluid will behave during production
  • Use laboratory data to determine values of fluid properties for use in engineering calculations
  • Use correlations to determine values of fluid properties in the absence of laboratory data
  • Select the best available fluid property correlations for oils, gases, and oilfield waters
  • Apply Equations of State and tune EOS to match experimental PVT data
  • Shape PVT data to get the best results out of analytical and numerical software.

Training Course Content

This in-house training programme can be customised to meet your specific requirements. It typically covers:

  • Fundamentals of hydrocarbon phase behavior: single-component systems, two-component systems, multi-component systems, classification of reservoirs and reservoir fluids, location of gas-oil contact
  • Characterizing hydrocarbon-plus fractions: generalized correlations, PNA determination, splitting and lumping schemes for equation of state applications,
  • Natural gas properties: behavior and properties of ideal gases, behavior and properties of real gases, wet gases and their behavior, analysis of gas condensate behavior
  • PVT properties of crude oils: crude oil properties, surface and interfacial tension, properties of reservoir water, understanding laboratory data, constant-composition expansion test, differential liberation test, separator test, liquid dropout, swelling test, slim tube test, calculations of minimum miscibility pressure, modeling of compositional variation with EOS
  • Equations of state and phase equilibria: equilibrium ratios, flash calculations, Van der Waals' Equation of State, Redlich-Kwong Equation of State, Soave-Redlich-Kwong EOS, Peng-Robinson EOS, fugacity and fugacity coefficient, binary interaction coefficient, volume shift parameter, Gibbs Free Energy, chemical potential, three-phase flash calculations, simulation of laboratory tests by equations of state, compositional gradient, tuning of equations of state
