Young Professionals Technical 101 Series: PVT 102 – PVT Data Use and EOS Modelling
June 16, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree – $10.00
Accurate knowledge of hydrocarbon fluid behaviour as it is produced from reservoir to surface helps determine the engineering and economic decisions that need to be made regarding a well’s completion and future. Once a representative sample has been captured, it must be safely transported to a laboratory where it will undergo detailed PVT (Pressure / Volume / Temperature) analysis.
Reservoir engineers, physicists, geologists, and production engineers all use live fluid sample analyses in making decisions. For example, fluid property data may be used with other physical property data from a nearby well to estimate the potential reserves of an exploration prospect. After an exploration prospect has been drilled, well test data can be used with the fluid analyses to define the discovery’s potential reserves. Reservoir fluid samples from the discovery can be used to determine the properties of hydrocarbons in the reservoir. This information, in turn, can be used by geologists and engineers to justify further appraisal drilling of the discovery field. From several appraisal wells, fluid samples can be analysed to help determine plans for field development, design for production facilities, equipment needs and pipelines. If improved or secondary recovery projects are initiated, then routine fluid sampling may well become part of the project maintenance.
In his second presentation, Dr Turker Karaman will discuss on where and how the PVT data is used, give information on the work flow of PVT experiments, talk on the construction of an EOS model in addition to the assumptions made while constructing a model.
Turker Karaman, Ph.D.: Studied Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering at Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey. He has worked as Data Acquisition Engineer with Expro in Angola and Australia Branches. Formerly worked as Senior Reservoir Engineer at Turkish Petroleum Corporation before he joins Expro. In his current role he is working as a Principal Technical Professional in Global Reservoir Engineering Support Team for Halliburton Testing and Subsea. He has several articles on prediction of multiphase flow properties in porous media.
