Advanced PVT & EOS Fluid Characterisation Training (5 Days)

This course is concerned with understanding the underlying phase behaviour important to the description and modelling of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes, and depletion performance of complex fluid systems.

Course Level: Advanced / Specialised
Instructor: Curtis H. Whitson

Designed for you, if you are…

  • A practicing reservoir engineer and/or researcher dealing with phase behaviour, miscible displacement and compositional / complex black-oil reservoir simulation
  • A process or chemical engineer

How we build your confidence

  • Laboratory experiments and correlations to obtain PVT data will be discussed and illustrated using practical examples
  • You are urged to bring your own PVT reports to discuss with the trainer
  • Fluid characterisation with an EOS using commercial PC-based programs will be performed

The benefits from attending
By the end of the course you will feel confident to:

  • Make decisions about sampling and PVT laboratory procedures required
  • Design and use PVT laboratory reports, including those for gas injection studies
  • Develop EOS models
  • Generate appropriate black-oil PVT tables for reservoir simulation

Topics

  • Traditional and modified black-oil PVT properties
  • Using correlations and laboratory data to obtain PVT properties
  • Laboratory PVT experiments – how they are conducted, for what purpose and how they should be applied
  • Fluid characterisation with an equation of state (EOS)
  • Heptanes – plus characterisation
  • Tuning an EOS by regression
  • Pseudoizing to reduce the number of components
  • Generating modified black-oil properties
  • Slim tube simulations and MMP calculations

Duration: 5 Days

Cost: 4,800 EUR + VAT Course Fee 250 EUR + VAT Computer Fee
