6: PT Behavior and Equations of State (EOS) I

  • Page ID
  • Module Goal: To introduce you to quantification in fluid phase behavior.

    Module Objective: To quantitatively and qualitatively compare ideal and real gas behavior.

    The ultimate purpose of this text is to build a firm knowledge of the phase behavior of fluids. With this understanding, we will be able to establish the basis and rationale upon which phase behavior applications in production systems are grounded. We are using the word production in a generic sense, that is, where it pertains to reservoir, pipeline, and the surface production (of any produced fluid).
