PGE 312 Physical and Chemical Behavior of Fluids Home Work 3 – Petroleum Fluids Solution Problem 5-1 a. The following graph plots the conditions of the reservoir for mixture 2 of ethane- heptane. The reservoir temperature is greater than the circondentherm of the mixture. The separator conditions lie outside the two - phase envelop of the mixture. The reservoir fluid type is Dry Gas.

Problem 5-2 A) Brazos County’s Buda Field Production of Oil per day = 10 barrels Production of gas per day = 50, 000 scf The initial producing gas-oil ratio = 50000 10 = 5000 ?±² ?³° A general rule of thumb is that a rich retrograde gas would have producing gas-oil ratio in the range of 3300 – 5000 ?±² ?³° . Thus, our conclusion is that the reservoir fluid type is: Retrograde Gas. It would be useful to know the Stock tank gravity (40° - 60° API) and the color of the
