Contents Petroleum fluids -- Fluid characterization requirement for various drive mechanisms and EOR -- Advance fluid sampling and charafcterization of complex hydrocarbon systems -- Planning of laboratory studies -- Phase behavior of petroleum reservoir fluids in the dense phase and supercritical regions -- Special characterization for EOR processes -- Compositional, fluid property and phase behavior characteristics of unconventional reservoir fluids -- Porous media effects on phase behavior of (unconventional) petroleum reservoir fluids -- Compositional and phase behavior effects in conventional and exotic heavy oil EOR processes -- Flow assurance in eor applications -- EOS and PVT simulation -- Complex fluids and compositional variation.
Summary "This book deals with complex fluid characterization of oil and gas reservoirs, emphasizing the importance of PVT parameters for practical application in reservoir simulation and management. It covers modeling of PVT parameters, QA/QC of PVT data from lab studies, EOS modeling, PVT simulation and compositional grading and variation. It describes generation of data for reservoir engineering calculations in view of limited and unreliable data and techniques like downhole fluid analysis and photophysics of reservoir fluids. It discusses behavior of unconventional reservoirs, particularly for difficult resources like shale gas, shale oil, coalbed methane, reservoirs, heavy and extra heavy oils"-- Provided by publisher.
