Experimental study on the effect of confinement on propane phase behavior
Condensation of petroleum retrograde gas especially around the wellbore in unconventional reservoirs can decrease well deliverability significantly. Better estimation of the dew point helps to improve production by minimizing the condensate dropout. Over geologic time, organic matter deposited in source rocks turns into oil and gas through a maturation process. These hydrocarbons then migrate away from source rock due to pressure, and find structural or stratigraphic traps and form conventional reservoirs. In unconventional reservoirs such as tight oil and shale gas, hydrocarbons were generated ...
