CHEN 402 - Fluid Phase Behaviour

Course Description:
Describes the properties of petroleum reservoir fluids (gas, oil, and water) important to understanding and predicting reservoir behaviour. These properties include the effects of temperature, pressure, and composition on gas solubility in oil and water, fluid volume/density, and fluid viscosity. The course also includes the fluid behaviours required for numerical reservoir flow simulation. These behaviours will include single component fluid phase changes (e.g. liquid and vapour), multi-component fluid phase changes, gas-liquid equilibrium, and various Equations of State.
