This course provides advanced training in the properties and behavior of black and volatile oils, dry and wet gases, retrograde gases, and water. Ideal and real gases, phase equilibrium, flash separation, laboratory PVT studies, and liquid-gas separation are discussed. Included are properties of volatile oils and liquid-rich fluids, which are especially important in unconventional plays. Fluid models using both the black oil model and compositional simulation are covered.
