Phase Behaviour Modelling & PVT Creation using WinProp
Who should attend
This two-day course is for engineers or other technical personnel who would like to use WinProp to predict phase behaviour of reservoir fluids as well as to characterize these fluids for reservoir simulation. Some knowledge of reservoir fluids phase behaviour is recommended.
About the course
WinProp is CMG's equation of state (EOS) multiphase equilibrium and properties simulation program. This course will discuss techniques for characterizing the heavy ends of petroleum fluid, lumping of components, matching laboratory PVT data through regression, simulation of first and multiple contact miscibility, and phase diagram generation. This course will also present a comprehensive description of the steps involved in tuning an EOS to obtain a fluid model suitable for inclusion in CMG’s IMEX, GEM and STARS reservoir simulators. Participants will learn how to use laboratory measured data to tune the EOS for use in reservoir simulation. All this will be followed by discussions on the analysis of the results generated by WinProp.
