From reserve estimation, to hydrocarbon reservoir modeling, to Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), the knowledge of Phase behavior plays a
crucial role in providing critical information resulting in efficient and profitable extraction, production and processing of fluids in the oil & gas industry.

This Masterclass is designed for upstream oil & gas production, reservoir/production engineers and Geoscientists who need to understand PVT (Pressure Volume Temperature) phase behavior and tests for different types of fluids (dry gas, wet gas, gas condensate, volatile oil, and black oil), how the data are presented in PVT reports, identifying relevant data and how the results can be used for Equation of State tuning and modelling. A familiarity with basic petroleum and reservoir engineering principles is a prerequisite. Topics ranging from reservoir fluid composition, phase behavior and reservoir fluids classification; optimally obtaining high quality PVT fluid samples; effect of contamination; PVT tests and correlations/modeling; the evaluation and application of PVT reports; fluid analysis and characterization, Equation of State (EoS) tuning using a commercial model and applications in reservoir simulation. There will be a discussion of potential causes of errors and several case studies. Considerable time will be allocated to reviewing PVT reports and extracting relevant data and using the data in tuning of EoS.

The course initially covers some fundamentals 1) Why do we do the PVT tests 2) how do we use the results with various examples to be
shown during the masterclass. The instructor will go over several PVT reports for various fluid systems (including the effect contamination), identifying the key data usage as well as giving few examples on how to tune the PVT software. A free 30-day copy of Hydrafact software (HydraFLASH) will be given to the participant for some of the calculations. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss their own PVT data.

Attend this course to master the following:

  • Demonstrate the fundamentals of reservoir fluid composition, phase behavior, correlations and classification.
  • Discussed and design fluid sampling for most representative sample, effect of contamination and how to remove it.
  • Establish PVT testing requirements and extract the most important data from PVT reports.
  • Fluid characterization, Gas Chromatography (GC), Distillation, Single Carbon Number (SCN), fluid description
  • Equation of State (EoS) tuning, parameters required, generating black oil table from EoS
  • An introduction to EOR processes, in particular gas injection, first contact miscible, multiple contact miscible (vaporizing/condensing gas drive)
  • Prepare the results of PVT analysis for use in reservoir modeling and reservoir engineering studies.
  • Characterize sources of error in PVT modelling and evaluate case studies
  • Use PVT data in EoS tuning (for a black oil and a gas condensate) and reservoir simulation
