ABSTRACT: Thepaper

evaluates the reliability

of the most common empirical correlations used for determining

reservoir fluid properties dead-oil

whenever laboratory PVT data are not available: bubblepoint pressure, solution GOR, bubblepoint OFVF. viscosity, gas-saturated oil viscosity and undersaturated oil viscosity.

The reliability has been evaluated against a set of shout 65 heavy and extra-heavy oil samples. About 1200 measured data points have been collected and investigated. All measured data points are reported in the paper. For all the correlations, the following statistical parameters have been calculated: a) relative deviation between estimated and experimental values, b) average absolute percent error, c) standard deviation;
011 samples have been divided in two different API gravity ciasses: extra-heavy oils for ‘API< The kst correlations for each class of API gravity have been evaluated for each oil-property.

The functional forms of the comelations that gave the best results for each oil property have been used for finding a better comelation with errors reduced, on average. by 10%. In particular, for extra-heavy oils, since no correlations are available in literature (except for viscosity), a special investigation has been performed and new equations are propmed.

INTRODUCTION The calculation of reserves in an oil reservoir or the determination of its performance and economics, requires a good knowledge of the fluids physical properties. Bubblepoint pressure, GOR, OFVF and compressibility are of primary importance in material balance calculation, whereas viscosity plays an important role in production
test interpretation and in properties are determined well problem analysis. Ideally. these from laboratory studies on samples

reliability only in a well-defined range of reservoir fluid characteristics. This is due to the fact that each correlation has been developed by using samples belonging to a restricted geographical area, with similar fluid compositions and API gravity. In particular for oils with gravity less than 22 ‘API the literature is very poor and nearly absent for oils with gravity less than 10 ‘API. This work is aimed at anaiysing tiie reliability of literature correlations, listed in table 1, relevant to heavy and extra-heavy Agip’s reservoir fluid samples, shown in table 2.

collected from the bottom of the wellbore or from the surface. Such experimental data am however not always available because of one or more of these reasons: a) sampies coiiecWi are not reiiabie. b) samples have not been taken because of cost saving. c) PVT analyses are not available when needed. This situation often occurs in production-test interpretation in exploration wells. In such cases PVT properties must be determined by using empirical derived correlations. Obviously the accuracy of such correlations is critical for the above mentioned calculations and it is not often known in advance. Despite the great number of work performed in the past 50 years on PVT correlations. each of them seems to be applicable with a good
