Properties of Petroleum Reservoir Fluids

File Size: 6.62 Mb

Petroleum engineering practice is constantly changing. This is due not only to the continual introduction of new methods and techniques but to changing economic factors as well. Nevertheless, there are certain fundamental concepts which form the foundation on which the art of petroleum engineering is based. The purpose of this book is to describe these basic concepts in so far as reservoir fluids are concerned.

Reservoir fluids are generally complex mixtures of hydrocarbons existing as liquid-gas systems under high pressures and relatively high temperatures. Since an important aspect of petroleum engineering is predicting the future behaviour of a petroleum reservoir when it is pro-duced in some prescribed manner, it is necessary to know the behavior of reservoir fluids as a function of temperature and pressure. Many of the laws which describe the behavior of simple, ideal fluid systems are known, but when dealing with the complex systems existing in petroleum reservoirs, it is necessary to recognize the deviations from ideal behavior. This book describes not only the properties of ideal fluids but also presents empirical correlations which must be employed for a more realistic approach to the problem.
