Hydrocarbon systems found in petroleum reservoirs are known to display multi-phase behavior over wide ranges of pressure and temperatures. The most important phases that occur in petroleum reservoirs are: liquid phase (crude oil or condensates) and gas (natural gases). This course will explain the hydrocarbon phase behavior and practical application in reservoir and production engineering. Firstly it will review the principles of phase behavior and illustrate the use of phase diagram in describing the volumetric behavior of single-component, two-component, and multi-component system.

It will also present numerous mathematical and graphical correlations for estimating physical and critical properties of the undefined petroleum fraction, evaluation of properties of natural gases and introduces their application in Darcy�s equation and material balance equation. A complete and cohesive independent unit on methods of determining the crude oil physical properties, presents the concept and application of vapor-liquid phase equilibrium, developments and advanced in the field of empirical cubic equation of state and application in petroleum engineering. Details scheme of splitting and lumping of petroleum-fraction.

Properly understanding the reservoir fluid properties is very significant and are very importance steps during the entire life of the oil and reservoir developments and operations. This five-day training will provide a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of reservoir fluid properties and application to reservoir and production engineering to keep excellent reservoir and production performance as long as possible.
