Simulation predicts condensate formation in Aghar field

A compositional program in a dynamic mode simulated multiphase flow through porous media and predicted condensate formation in a gas-condensate reservoir in southern Iran’s Aghar field.The study used the sequential method for treating both thermodynamic and fluid flow so that the pressure-volume-temperature (PVT) condition in each time step determined the fluid flow parameters for the next time step.The simulation showed the effects of liquid dropout in the near wellbore and the program’s flexibility allows for its use in such other processes as gas cycling to clean the wellbore from liquid dropout.Gas-condensate reservoirsGas-condensate reservoirs are common in the Middle Eas...
