Phase Behaviour &
Fluid Property Program

WinProp is an integral component in advanced reservoir simulation modelling and is invaluable for multi-phase and special processes, and where compositional variations exist.

EoS Characterization
Tune EoS to accurately match laboratory results and predict fluid behavior.

  • Analyze two EoS models - surface (separator) conditions and reservoir conditions
  • Choose from multiple EoS models, E.g. Peng-Robinson and Soave-Redlich-Kwong EoS models (2 and 3 parameter versions), to match lab data
  • Create separate EoS models for surface (separator) conditions and reservoir conditions
  • Regression on composition and properties to allow for easy matching of lab data
  • Automatic parameter selection and built-in parameter bounds simplifies regression process
  • Linear temperature-dependent volume shift model to accurately match lab calculated density
  • Match separator data separately from PVT data gathered at reservoir temperature using differential liberation experiments
  • Group parameters for regression and apply varying weights to specify importance of matching distinct parameters
