Correlation of Black Oil Properties At Pressures Below Bubble Point Pressure - A New Approach Academic Article uri icon


  • A modified bubblepoint pressure correlation is proposed at pressures below the field-data derived bubblepoint pressure. The correlation fits the data set of 728 laboratory measured bubblepoint pressures more closely than other published correlations. The proposed correlation requires the usual field data: solution gas-oil ratio at the bubblepoint, reservoir temperature, separator gas specific gravity, and stock tank oil gravity.
