PVT Property Correlation: Selection and Estimationhelps engineers target their correlations based on an expert system. This reference presents several techniques that will allow engineers to select the best PVT correlation, especially when encountering limited reservoir fluid data and conditions. Tested against a large database, these techniques cover different types of fluids, including recent techniques using neural networks. Complimentary software that checks the input reservoir parameters for selecting the most appropriate correlation and a PVT calculator to predict oil properties over a wide range of input data is included.

In reservoir engineering, accurate determination of PVT properties is one of the most critical decisions in reservoir performance and forecasting. However, finding the right correlation is very time consuming and expensive, and today's engineers lack the proper tools for correlation assessment.

This book demonstrates the importance of PVT data and correlations so that today's reservoir engineers can produce and model stronger and more reliant assets.

  • Covers the importance of selecting the most appropriate values for PVT data and correlations without PVT experimental results
  • Provides a a comprehensive list of all applicable ranges of PVT correlations, including gas condensate and volatile oil
  • Teaches users how to apply practicality with an entire chapter devoted to a variety of reservoir problems and calculation examples
Ahmed El-Bandi is currently Professor in petroleum engineering at Cairo University, teaching in reservior engineering and reservoir simulation. He is also Managing Director and Principal Consultant for Impact Energy Solutions, a consulting firm focused on field development projects and integrated reservoir studies. He has twenty-three ...
