This 1-day course is an introduction to thermodynamics and pressure-volume-temperature (PVT) and tuning parameters to fit laboratory data. Different analytical models for oil rate predictions such as Butler-Mokrys (1989) and Dunn-Nenniger-Rajan (1989) models will be discussed.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Become familiar with fundamentals of phase behavior modeling
- Be able to carry out simple phase-equilibria calculations
- Assumptions made in solvent analytical models for oil rate prediction
- Understanding benefits and limitations of pure-solvent and steam-solvent processes
