PVT & Phase Behavior

PVT has an impact on essentially every discipline in the petroleum domain. However, utilizing and accessing PVT information can be costly, impractical and time-consuming. whitsonPVT streamlines the access to both PVT data and models throughout an organization. Every PVT report, black oil table, fluid initialization model or gas-EOR calculation is centralized in one place. We like to think about it as a living document for PVT data and models that ensures consistency and enables collaboration across an organization.


    Key Features

  • Fluid definition from limited field data (API & GOR)
  • BO Table Generation and Extrapolation
  • BOT and EOS Model Export to Any Platform
  • Gas EOR Module (Miscibility, Huff-n-Puff)
  • Database of PVT Reports, Sampling & Fluid Storage

Production Data Diagnostics

Generate daily wellstream compositions based on readily available field-measured data, leveraging an EOS model. These wellstream compositions are used for multiple relevant engineering calculations, such as separator shrinkage factor calculations (sales oil recovery factor), converting GORs for changing separator conditions, and separator process optimization. Other engineering applications include the analysis of emissions & air quality, well classification (for royalty & tax purposes), as well as the correct allocation of sales products to individual wells. 

    Key Features

  • Compositional Tracking
  • Separator Oil Shrinkage (Sales Oil Volume)
  • Common Process Conversion
  • Separator Optimization
  • Gas Condensate Diagnostics

Pipeflow Calculations

Bottomhole pressures are required in many reservoir- and production engineering aspects, such as history matching, RTA/PTA, IPR estimation, and more. Based on production data measured at the surface (i.e. surface rates, and wellhead pressure and temperature), and key properties describing the wellbore (i.e. a deviation survey describing the curvilinear shape of the well, wellbore diameter, and pipe roughness), we can estimate the bottomhole pressure through several commonly used correlations.

    Key Features

  • Multiphase flow wellbore calculations
  • Multiple correlations (Beggs and Brill, Hagedorn and Brown, Gray, Woldesamayat and Ghajar)
  • Uncertainty range of BHP calculation based on different correlations
  • Consistent handling of shut-well BHP calculation
