This online course introduces the topic of fluid phase behaviour, with a focus on black-oil formulations for oil & gas reservoirs.

About this event


The objective of this online course is to introduce the participants to the topic of fluid phase behavior, with a focus on black-oil formulations for oil and gas reservoirs.

During the initial part, the focus will be on classical fluid properties as defined for black-oil fluid types and hydrocarbon gases.

The second part will cover fluid sampling, PVT laboratory experiments and PVT report analysis for further use in reservoir engineering.

COURSE STRUCTURE: 9 modules of 1½ hours each, delivered over 3 days

Each day will consist of 3 modules of 1½ hours, incl. a 15 min break.

Course Level: Foundation

Instructor: Leonhard Ganzer

		Basic Reservoir Fluid Properties & Phase Behaviour image


  • A reservoir or petroleum engineer with limited work experience
  • A recent hire in an oil & gas company


  • You will learn about classical fluid properties for oil, gas and water and understand phase diagrams.
  • The instructor will demonstrate practical problems for all reservoir fluids types to enhance understanding of PVT experiments, sampling and show interpretation of old and new PVT laboratory reports.

By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:

  • Hydrocarbon phase behavior during the reservoir lifecycle
  • Black-oil properties in detail with respect to modelling
  • Laboratory work and experiments (CCE, DLE, Separator Test, etc.)
  • Real-world PVT laboratory reports, QC and interpretation of PVT reports


  • Part I - Basic PVT and Black-Oil:
    • Principal fluid phase behavior
    • PVT behavior of natural gases
    • Black-oil PVT properties
    • Water in hydrocarbon system

  • Part II – PVT Experiments and EOS:
    • Introduction to cubic Equations of State (EOS)
    • Compositional vs. Black-oil PVT modelling
    • Fluid sampling and PVT experiments
    • Understanding of PVT reports and generation of black-oil tables
