Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Nov 18th- 20th , 2019: PVT Simulation Course for Reservoir Engineers

Kuala Lumpur: 18 November 2019 - 20 November 2019


Fluid compositions and experimental PVT data are the basic input for simulations in PVTsim. The user of a PVT simulator should therefore have knowledge of how the data is measured, how to use and interpret experimental PVT data as well as to operate the PVT simulator. The course covers EoS modeling from the stage of sampling until the export of the final EoS model to a reservoir simulator or other third party software. The course participants will use the Automated QC and the Automated EoS Apps which decrease the time required to generate a robust EoS model, all the while using Calsep’s recommended EoS modeling workflow. The aim of the course is to provide knowledge of how to best make use of the experimental PVT data for equation of state modeling in PVTsim.

The course will be presented in lectures and demonstrations coupled with hands-on exercises in the use of PVTsim Nova.

The following topics will be covered (but not limited to)

Fluid handling

  • Input to PVTsim and QC of fluid compositions
  • Compositional analysis and recombination
  • Equations of State
  • C7+ characterization and lumping
  • Clean for oil based mud contamination

PVT experiments

  • Classical PVT experiments
  • PVT experiments with gas injection (EOR)
  • Navigating a PVT lab report

PVTsim Nova Apps

  • Automated QC
  • Automated EoS
  • Separation process on a production stream

PVT modeling

  • Regression to PVT and viscosity data
  • Regression to gas injection EOR data
  • Recommended workflow for EOS modeling in PVTsim


  • Single fluid EoS model
  • Common EoS modeling
  • Compositional variation with depth

Input to reservoir simulators

  • Eclipse, IMEX/GEM, VIP, Nexus, tNavigator, Prosper, etc.
  • Customized solutions for reservoir engineering applications

Who Should Participate

Engineers engaged in reservoir simulations, production engineers, laboratory staff and others interested in applying PVT simulation software for calculation of oil and gas phase behaviour and fluid properties. With its mix of theory and practice the course is appropriate for those who want to learn to use PVTsim as well as those mainly interested in PVT simulation methods.
