Large sets of petroleum fluid data exist for the various reservoir conditions and properties that occur in practice.

Petroleum Reservoir Fluid Property Correlations, written by three internationally well-known and respected petroleum engineers, is the result of years of exhaustive research that gathered data sets from databases all over the world. The data were then compared against the results of many published correlations of fluid properties in order to find the ""best in class"" required in the petroleum industry. Those findings are offered in this new book as recommended use in reservoir engineering calculations. The data sets cover natural gases, reservoir oils and reservoir waters (brines).

Petroleum Reservoir Fluid Property Correlations will prove to be a valuable resource for reservoir engineers, production engineers who need to determine which set of correlation equations are most useful for their work, and graduate-level reservoir engineering courses.

PGE 427 Properties of Petroleum Fluids is an undergraduate core course focused on the physical properties of organic chemicals (a.k.a. Fluids). However the corresponding lab course is duplicated from PGE 421 Physical and Chemical Behavior of Fluids II (a.k.a. Pchem). Thus the lab materials are sometimes irrelevant and inappropriate. Also the Pchem course has not been updated for decades, some lab materials are outdated. The purpose of this project is to filter the existing labs, remove the irrelevant contents, update the obsolete labs, and design several new labs which relate to the Fluids course. The report primarily focus on the new lab designs and documents the updated labs as well. Two new labs has been developed. They are Freezing Point Depression, and Viscosity Measurement. The report includes background information, objectives, design principals, safety management and Lab Manual for each lab.

Compositional Grading in Oil and Gas Reservoirs offers instruction, examples, and case studies on how to answer the challenges of modeling a compositional gradient subject. Starting with the basics on PVT analysis, applied thermodynamics, and full derivations of irreversible thermodynamic-based equations, this critical reference explains gravity-modified equations to be applied to reservoirs, enabling engineers to obtain fluid composition at any point of the reservoir from measured data to create a stronger model calibration. Once model-parameters are re-estimated, new sensibility can be acquired for more accurate modeling of composition, aiding engineers with stronger production curves, reserve estimations, and design of future development strategies. Multiple examples and case studies are included to show the application of the theory from very simple to more complex systems, such as actual reservoirs influenced by thermal diffusion and gravity simultaneously. Other example include a layer for which asphaltene precipitation takes place in the reservoir and three –phase flash algorithms for liquid-liquid-vapor equilibrium calculations, detailing the techniques necessary to ensure convergence. The book combines practical studies with the importance in modeling more complex phenomena, filling a gap for current and upcoming reservoir engineers to expand on solutions and make sense of their reservoir’s output results. Presents a deeper level of detail on the heterogeneity composition and thermo-physical properties of petroleum fluids in the reservoir Includes tactics on how to Increase reliability of reservoir simulation initialization, with practice examples at the end of each chapter Helps readers make sense of compositional grading, with coverage on both theory and application that fulfill a gap in research on reservoir simulation
