Petroleum can exist as either a liquid or a gas, either in the reservoir or on the trip to the surface. These properties are the basis for the chemistry of petroleum. This long-awaited new edition to William D. McCain’s acclaimed text expands on the various compounds of this essential hydrocarbon. It includes new chapters on petroleum gas condensates and volatile oils, while the discussion on oilfield waters is extended. A vital resource for petroleum engineering students, The Properties of Petroleum Fluids, third edition, is equally useful as a reference for practicing engineers. New Features: Two new chapters on gas condensates A new chapter on volatile oils A simplified explanation of phase behavior and an extended discussion of oilfield waters An expanded review of the components of petroleum and the methods of determining its composition

Large sets of petroleum fluid data exist for the various reservoir conditions and properties that occur in practice.

Petroleum Reservoir Fluid Property Correlations, written by three internationally well-known and respected petroleum engineers, is the result of years of exhaustive research that gathered data sets from databases all over the world. The data were then compared against the results of many published correlations of fluid properties in order to find the ""best in class"" required in the petroleum industry. Those findings are offered in this new book as recommended use in reservoir engineering calculations. The data sets cover natural gases, reservoir oils and reservoir waters (brines).

Petroleum Reservoir Fluid Property Correlations will prove to be a valuable resource for reservoir engineers, production engineers who need to determine which set of correlation equations are most useful for their work, and graduate-level reservoir engineering courses.

Understanding the phase behavior of the various fluids present in a petroleum reservoir is essential for achieving optimal design and cost-effective operations in a petroleum processing plant. Taking advantage of the authors’ experience in petroleum processing under challenging conditions, Phase Behavior of Petroleum Reservoir Fluids introduces industry-standard methods for modeling the phase behavior of petroleum reservoir fluids at various stages in the process. Keeping mathematics to a minimum, the book discusses sampling, characterization, compositional analyses, and equations of state used to simulate various pressure–volume–temperature (PVT) properties of reservoir fluids. The coverage of phase behavior at reservoir conditions includes simulating minimum miscibility pressures and compositional variations depending on depth and temperature gradients. Developed in conjunction with several oil companies using experimental data for real reservoir fluids, the authors present new models for the characterization of heavy undefined hydrocarbons, transport properties, and solids precipitation. An up-to-date overview of recently developed methods for modern petroleum processing, Phase Behavior of Petroleum Reservoir Fluids presents a streamlined approach for more accurate analyses and better predictions of fluid behavior under variable reservoir conditions.

Despite the incorporation of many new ideas and concepts, elaboration of the more re cent concepts is limited due to space considerations. It is hoped that the geologist will follow up via the literature referenced at the end of each chapter. Easy reference is provided by the detailed table of contents and index. A glossary of terms, definitions, and formulae adds to the usefulness of this reference text. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS FOR FIGURES Figure 2-7 is reprinted by permission of the AAPG from Barker, 1972.

This handbook provides a comprehensive but concise reference resource for the vast field of petroleum technology. Built on the successful book "Practical Advances in Petroleum Processing" published in 2006, it has been extensively revised and expanded to include upstream technologies. The book is divided into four parts: The first part on petroleum characterization offers an in-depth review of the chemical composition and physical properties of petroleum, which determine the possible uses and the quality of the products. The second part provides a brief overview of petroleum geology and upstream practices. The third part exhaustively discusses established and emerging refining technologies from a practical perspective, while the final part describes the production of various refining products, including fuels and lubricants, as well as petrochemicals, such as olefins and polymers. It also covers process automation and real-time refinery-wide process optimization. Two key chapters provide an integrated view of petroleum technology, including environmental and safety issues.Written by international experts from academia, industry and research institutions, including integrated oil companies, catalyst suppliers, licensors, and consultants, it is an invaluable resource for researchers and graduate students as well as practitioners and professionals.

With mounting pressure to extract petroleum from oil sands and other unconventional sources, oil refineries must adapt their processing methods to handle increasingly heavy crude oils. Unlike traditional crude oils, the properties of heavier crude oils include higher viscosity, metal, salt, and acid content. This causes their interfacial properties to deteriorate, leading to problems such as sedimentation, foaming, emulsification, rust, and corrosion—all of which make the manufacture, transportation, and storage of petroleum products more difficult. Interfacial Properties of Petroleum Products examines conventional and non-conventional processing techniques for crude oils and documents their effects on the composition and properties of petroleum products at the oil/solid, oil/air, oil/water and oil/metal interfaces. Focusing on surface activity, the author examines the undesirable effects of processes such as solvent extraction, desalting, dewaxing, catalyst deactivation, and hydroprocessing as well as trace element and water contamination. With each process, the author presents methods for improving interfacial properties, including the use of surface-active additives, demulsifiers, antifoaming agents, and corrosion/rust inhibitors. A distinctive and up-to-date source of materials published together for the first time, Interfacial Properties of Petroleum Products will help engineers design more cost-effective and resource-efficient processing methods for heavier crude oils, based on the properties of the crude oil extracted.
