Solutions of Hm4 5-1 a) It is a dry gas because the reservoir temperature is larger than the cricondentherm and the separator condition is outside the envelope. b) It is a wet gas since the reservoir temperature is larger than the cricondentherm and the separator condition is inside the envelope. c) It is a retrograde gas since the reservoir temperature is between the cricondentherm and the critical temperature, and the separator condition is inside the envelope. d) It is a volatile oil since the reservoir temperature is slightly smaller than the critical temperature and the separator condition is inside the envelope. e) It is a black oil since the reservoir temperature is much smaller than the critical temperature and the separator condition is inside the envelope. 5-6 A volatile oil is defined by a GOR between 2000-3300, an API of 40 or higher, and a color of brown,

Unformatted text preview: green or orange. This fluid has an initial GOR of 2000 scf/STB, 51.2 API and a medium orange color. So, it is a volatile oil. 5-8 The C7+ fraction of the fluid is 14.91%, which is between 12.5-20%. The Bo is 2.6 res bbls/STB, larger than 2. All characteristics indicate it is a volatile oil. 5-13 It is a volatile oil. Its API (46.6), GOR (2906 scf/STB), C7+ fraction (13.07%), Bo (2.504 res bbs/STB), and orange brown color all fit in the characteristics of volatile oils (API>40, GOR 2000-3300, C7+ 12.5-30%, Bo>2, orange color). 5-15 Because there is no oil produced at the surface, it is a dry gas. 5-17 Because the GOR and API both increase with time, it is classified as a retrograde gas. Wet gases do not have its GOR and API change during production....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
