Reservoir Fluid Parameters Lab Report



Cover Letter

Dear sir/madam
The experiment was done on 20th, December, 2018. The title of the experiment involved
Determination of Reservoir Fluid parameters. The experiment was carried out at ESB WVU
building. The purpose of the experimental test was to determine and correlate surface-volumes of
gas and oil using reservoir volumes. Moreover, the experiment aimed after studying three
parameters of the gas-oil sample: - Bg, Bo, and Rs using three different methods: - separator test,
differential vaporization and flash vaporization. A PVT simulator was used to estimate the
respective values for the three parameters.



The purpose of the experiment was to determine the values of Bo,Bg and R5 of the given
sample through performing differential and flash liberations on a hydrocarbon system comprising
of hexane, propane and methane. The multicomponent system was meant to enable students
familiarize with how liberation experiments are done as well as all calculations involved.
Generally, flash liberations result to small final-oil volumes. Moreover, the experiment aimed after
aiding to determine different surface volumes of oil-gas samples. The three parameters determined
throughout the experiment are as shown below: -

Normally, the value of Bg obtained is always less than one. This occur due to the fact that
gases expand when taken from higher reservoir pressure to standard surface conditions.
Differently, the value obtained for Bo is expected to be higher than one. This is because the
available pressure will be lowered from the reservoir to the stock tank conditions. Note that, as
pressure reduces from the from the reservoir to tank conditions, the available oil shrinks or
decreases in volume due to evolving of the gas. The value of Bo too close to the unity will represent
an oil with little gas dissolved in it. Similarly, R5 represents quantification of the gas in the solution
within the reservoir at standard conditions which will evaporate from the oil after it was brought
near the surface.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
