PVT Simulation Course

Perth: 10 April 2018 - 12 April 2018

The Course

The course will cover all key elements of PVT simulation including (but not limited to)

  • General fluid handling in PVTsim
    • Input to PVTsim
    • PVT experiments and PVT reports
    • Compositional analysis
    • QC of fluid compositions
  • EOS modelling of petroleum fluids
    • Equations of State
    • C7+ characterization and lumping
    • Viscosity correlations & Viscosity tuning
    • Multiple fluid EOS modeling (Mixing and Same Pseudos)
    • Simulation & Regression of PVT experiments
    • Recommended workflow for EOS modeling in PVTsim
  • Modelling of Polar components
    • Water
    • Salts
    • Hydrate inhibitors
  • Flow Assurance
    • Wax simulations
    • Asphaltene simulations
    • Hydrate simulations
  • Input for external simulators
    • Use PVTsim fluid model to provide input for other simulators, like OLGA, Eclipse, Hysys etc..

The theory will be presented in lectures and exemplified through hands-on exercises in the use of PVTsim. After taking the class participants will know how to QC fluid compositions, make regressions to PVT data and will also have knowledge of the best practices for EOS modeling. Participants will also know how to utilize PVTsim's capabilities for calculations on wax, hydrate and asphaltene appearance.

Who Should Participate

Engineers engaged in reservoir simulations, production engineers with an emphasis on flow assurance, laboratory staff and others interested in applying PVT simulation software for calculation of oil and gas phase behaviour and fluid properties. With its mix of theory and practice the course is appropriate for those who want to learn to use PVTsim as well as those mainly interested in PVT simulation models.
