PGE 312 Physical and Chemical Behavior of Petroleum Fluids I Fall 2011 Unique No. 19445 Catalog Description Principles of organic chemistry; phase behavior; properties of hydrocarbon gases and liquids and oilfield waters; overview of laboratory phase behavior measurements. Goals The purpose of this course is to develop a basic understanding of the behavior and the physical and chemical properties of natural hydrocarbons and oilfield waters and to apply this knowledge to solve simple petroleum engineering problems. At the end of the course, students should be able to Classify petroleum reservoirs. Solve phase behavior problems for hydrocarbon systems. Understand and use laboratory measurements of hydrocarbon fluid properties. Use standard correlations to estimate hydrocarbon and oilfield water properties in the absence of laboratory measurements. Impact on Subsequent Courses in Curriculum This course provides students with a fundamental understanding of hydrocarbon and oilfield water fluid properties for use in upper-division petroleum engineering courses.
