IPM PVTP Version 8.5
IPM - Fluid Characterisation OVERVIEW
by Petroleum Experts Limited
An understanding of PVT properties is fundamental to all aspects of reservoir, petroleum and production engineering. PVTP allows tuning of Equations of State (EOS) to match laboratory data. The tuned EOS can then be used to simulate a range ofreservoir and production processes, which impact equipment sizing and reservoir recovery. Multiple Samples Reservoir information is handled in a unique project structure to allow the user to create a consistant picture of the reservoir system. PVTP has been designed to lead the engineer logically through the fluid characterising process, which includes tuning EOS models to match measured laboratorydata at both reservoir and process conditions. PVTP can be used to generate tables of fluid properties, reduced compositions or matched parameters (Tc, Pc, and Binary Interaction Coefficients) for applications such as reservoir simulation and nodal analysis. PVTP maximises the value of your laboratory PVT studies by minimising the amount of experiments required. PVTP has been extended to includethe modelling of solids VIZ. hydrates and waxes and includes calculations for hydrate formation pressure, hydrate inhibition, wax appearance temperature and wax dropout. PVTP features OPENSERVER.
