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.

Homework and Exams Homework (15%) Unannounced pop quizzes (5%) 3 Tests in class on September 28, November 2 and November 28 (40%). Final Exam on Saturday, December 10, 9:00 - 12:00 noon (40%) Course Policies There will be no make-up exams. It is absolutely essential that you take the tests and final exam as scheduled. Tests and final exam will not be given ahead of schedule or after the fact. I will drop one test score. If you miss a test for any reason, that test will be dropped. If you miss two tests, one will be dropped and the other will be assigned a grade of 0%. If you take all three tests, and I strongly advise you to do so, your least test score will be dropped. Due dates for homework will be clearly stated. Late homework will not be accepted. Academic dishonesty will be severely punished. It is your responsibility to protect your work (homework, tests and final exam) from others. The homework sets are NOT team projects. You should solve them on your own to learn the material. Copying homework solutions from students who took the course in prior semesters or from TA’s solutions posted in prior semesters is academic dishonesty and will be treated as such. Please consult the UT Honor Code at http://registrar.utexas.edu/catalogs/gi09-10/ch01/index.html Class attendance is mandatory. Students who fail to attend class regularly often do poorly in this course. Unannounced pop quizzes will be given throughout the semester to reward regular class
