New correlations calculate volatile oil, gas condensate PVT properties

New correlations provide modified black-oil (MBO) pressure-volume-temperature (PVT) properties when fluid samples are unavailable.One can use the correlations in generalized material balance calculations and MBO simulations. The new correlations match the fluid properties of a selected database and the authors also validated them with generalized material balance calculations.To develop the new corrections, the authors modified existing solution gas-oil ratio, oil formation volume factor, and gas formation-volume factor correlations to increase their accuracy when used with gas condensates and volatile oils.The new correlations have an accuracy within 10.4% for gas condensate and 15% for ...
