Learn how to predict phase behaviour and characterize the reservoir fluids for reservoir simulation using WinProp.

Review basic concepts of the petroleum fluid phase behaviour and gain hands-on experience using WinProp to:

  • Characterize the heavy fraction of the petroleum fluids
  • Lump and split components
  • Match laboratory PVT data through regression
  • Simulate first and multiple contact miscibilities
  • Perform multiphase equilibrium calculations
  • Perform phase diagram generation

Use will also learn to characterize the fluid and tune the EoS in order to obtain a fluid model suitable for inclusion in GEM, STARS, or IMEX datasets, and analyze WinProp results.
