Performance Evaluation of Equation of State in Reservoir Fluid Modeling
Contribution to knowledge:
The study developed an equation of state (EOS) Pressure, Volume, Temperature, (PVT), software to accurately characterize petroleum reservoir fluids and simulate PVT laboratory experiments without EOS experiments without EOS matching. The procedure implemented in the software showed that the EOS is indeed reasonably predictive as against the belief that the EOS exhibits poor predictive capability unless tuned to match PVT laboratory experiments.
Dr. Kanu, Austin Ukwu, was jointly supervised by Prof. Mike O. Onyekonwu (Department of Petroleum Engineering) & Dr. Sunday S. Ikiensikimama (Department of Gas Engineering) both of the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
