New empirical pressure-volume-temperature (PVT) correlations for estimating bubblepoint pressure, solution gas-oil ratio (GOR), bubblepoint oil formation volume factor (FVF), and undersaturated isothermal oil compressibility have been developed as a function of commonly available field data.
Results show that these PVT properties can be predicted with average absolute errors ranging from 0.64% for bubblepoint oil FVF to 6.66% for undersaturated isothermal oil compressibility.
