3-Day PVTsim Nova Course

Event Date:

March 5, 2024

Event Time:

9:00 am

Event Location:

Calsep A/S

The course will cover all key elements of PVT simulations and will show how PVTsim Nova can be used to solve a variety of reservoir engineering and flow assurance tasks. It will give an insight into the fluid characterization procedures and the thermodynamic models applied in the software. Regression to experimental data will be covered for single fluids and for multiple fluids to be represented using the same equation of state parameters. It will be demonstrated how to reduce the time spent on EoS modeling by making use of PVTsim’s automated options for quality check and regression to PVT data.


Non-classical equations of state for mixtures containing water and other polar components will be introduced with examples of recommended applications. It will be shown what to expect from the more than thirty interfaces to external software packages and how to make best use of them.

The course will be presented in lectures hands-on exercises and cover the below main topics.


Topics to be covered

  • Input to PVTsim and QC of fluid compositions
  • Compositional analysis and recombination
  • Equations of State (Cubic EoS, CPA, HV, GERG-2008)
  • C7+ characterization and lumping
  • Navigating a PVT lab report
  • Classical PVT experiments
  • Mud contaminated samples
  • Regression to PVT data
  • Water, Salts & Hydrate Inhibitors
  • Input to external simulators



Engineers who would like to get an understanding of the concepts of PVT simulation and learn how to use PVTsim. 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.
