PVT Properties of Reservoir Fluids

4.3 Average client rating (based on 167 attendee reviews)

This course will present the methods for obtaining values of reservoir fluid properties from laboratory data and correlations.  Chemical properties of hydrocarbons, conventional laboratory PVT (Pressure-Volume-Temperature) tests and quality control will also be covered.  Participants will learn about phase diagrams, mixing rules, EOS, EOS tuning, and fluid properties while attending this course.  Each day participants will be given examples and problems to solve.

This course will help participants gain a better understanding of the relationship between the five reservoir fluids and how to manage problem concerning reservoir fluid properties with increased confidence.

    Day 1

    Fundamentals of PVT (Pressure-Volume-Temperature)  

    • Overview of PVT Analysis
    • Hydrocarbon Chemistry
    • Phase Behaviour of single and multi-component systems
    • Miscibility concept
    • Reservoir Fluids

    On the first day of the course, participants will learn about the basic fundamentals of PVT analysis, along with object of PVT analysis and the hydrocarbon chemistry.  Phase behavior of single and multi-component systems will be covered.  Miscibility concept and minimum miscibility pressure will also be covered. The day will end with a discussion on type of reservoir fluids.

    Day 2

    PVT Fluid Properties, Reporting and Evaluating  

    • Equations of State for Ideal and Real Gases
    • PVT Properties of Natural Gas
    • PVT Properties of Black Oil
    • Reservoir Fluid Studies Reports

    The day will start with learning the equations of states for ideal and real gases and PVT properties of natural gas. Participants will discuss the conventional experimental procedures used to generate PVT data such as constant volume depletion and differential liberation. The day will end with participants learning about the PVT reports and evaluation of the reported data and their application.

    Day 3

    Development of Equation of State (EoS) Models 

    • Black Oil Correlations
    • Ideal and Non-Ideal Gas-Liquid Equilibrium
    • Evaluation of phase boundaries and flash equilibrium with EoS

    Day three will start with black oil correlations and then will focus on Equations of State (EoS).  Participants will learn about the Development of the EoS models along with the different types of EoS.  Comparisons of EoS results, evaluation of phase boundaries and flash equilibrium with EoS, K-value correlations and the tuning of EoS will also be covered. Other topics that will be discussed on this day include, volume translation concepts for improved volumetric predictions using EoS, compositional gradients and variation, and compositional processes.

    Day 4

    Tuning and Data Requirements 

    • Cubic Equation of State
    • Solution of van der Waals EOS
    • Fugacity Evaluations
    • PVT-VLE Evaluation
    • Tuning of Equations of State

    Tuning and data requirements will be the main focus on this day.  Qubic EoS and its solution will be discussed first.  Then the participants will learn how fugacity and K-value evaluations are done from an EoS.  The day will end with an EoS tuning example.

    Day 5

    Oil Filed Applications

    • Surface Separation and example separator Calculations
    • Properties of Oilfield Water
    • Gas Hydrates and Hydrate Prediction correlations 

    The last day of the course will cover examples on surface separator calculations, phase properties of gas hydrates and their correlations. The day will end with participants learning about the properties of oilfield waters.

  • Audience

  • Location

    Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is the capital and largest city of Malaysia.

    Beginning in the 1990s, the city has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One World Championship. In addition, Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers.

    Protected by the Titiwangsa Mountains in the east and Indonesia's Sumatra Island in the west, Kuala Lumpur has a tropical rainforest climate which is warm and sunny, along with abundant rainfall, especially during the northeast monsoon season from October to March.

    The major tourist destinations in Kuala Lumpur include the Dataran Merdeka (the Independence Square), the House of Parliament, the Istana Budaya, the Istana Negara (National Palace), the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Muzium Negara (National Museum), the Putra World Trade Centre, the Tugu Negara (National Monument) and mosques such as the Masjid Jamek, the Masjid Negara (National Mosque) and the Federal Territory Mosque.

    Other tourist attractions include the Aquaria KLCC, the Batu Caves, the Makam Pahlawan (National Mausoleum), the National Science Centre, Petaling Street, the Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre, the Zoo Negara (National Zoo), and events such as Malay cultural centres, the Chinese cultural festivals at the Thean Hou Temple and the Thaipusam procession at the Sri Mahamariamman Temple. The Golden Triangle, the commercial hub of the city, contains the Petronas Twin Towers and has a distinctive nightlife. Trendy nightclubs, bars and lounges, such as the Beach Club, Espanda, the Hakka Republic Wine Bar & Restaurant, Hard Rock Cafe, the Luna Bar, Nuovo, Rum Jungle, the Thai Club, Zouk, and many others are located within and around Jalan P. Ramlee, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang.

    Hotels, from five-star to budget types, have cropped up everywhere to accommodate the influx of tourists each year. There are many hotels near Kuala Lumpur's entertainment and business districts.

    Kuala Lumpur alone has 66 shopping malls and it is the retail and fashion hub for Malaysia. Suria KLCC is one of Malaysia's premier shopping destinations due to its location beneath the Petronas Twin Towers.

    Kuala Lumpur Sky Line

    The Perdana Lake Gardens near the Malaysian Parliament building includes a Butterfly Park, Deer Park, Orchid Garden, Hibiscus Garden and Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, Southeast Asia's largest bird park.

    There are three forest reserves within the city namely the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve in the city centre, the oldest gazetted forest reserve in the country, Bukit Sungai Putih Forest Reserve and Bukit Sungai Besi Forest Reserve. Bukit Nanas, in the heart of the city centre, is one of the oldest virgin forests in the world within a city. These residual forest areas are home to a number of fauna species particularly monkeys, tree shrews, squirrels and birds.

    Kuala Lumpur is a hub for cultural activities and events in Malaysia. Among the centres is the National Museum which is situated along the Mahameru Highway. Its collection comprises artifacts and paintings collected throughout the country. Kuala Lumpur also has an Islamic Arts Museum which houses more than seven thousand Islamic artefacts including rare exhibits as well as a library of Islamic art books. However, the museum's collection not only concentrate on works from the Middle East, the museum also puts the emphasis on Asia, with China and Southeast Asia especially well represented. This museum features some impressively decorated domes and large open exhibition spaces. It is located at Jalan Lembah Perdana next to the National Mosque.

    Kuala Lumpur is one of the host cities for the Formula One World Championship, the open-wheel auto racing A1 Grand Prix and the Motorcycle Grand Prix with races being held at Sepang International Circuit in the neighbouring state of Selangor, next to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
