PVT properties are important reservoir parameters. Correlations are used whenever experimentally derived PVT data are not available. No universal PVT correlation is available and data from local regions are expected to give better approximation to estimated PVT values.

Available PVT data from UAE reservoirs was used to obtain correlation equations for bubble point pressure and oil FVF as function of oil specific gravity, gas gravity, solution GOR, and reservoir temperature. Error bounds of the obtained correlations are calculated and compared to other correlations available in the literature. The correlations of this study result in lower errors and should work better for UAE crudes.
