PVT tool provides the basic input for any Petroleum Engineering calculation.

PVT tool calculates the main properties of oil, gas and water using a set of black-oil correlations.

PVT Tool

Main features

  • Plots of PVT properties vs pressure at reservoir temperature.
  • Output section contains values under reservoir conditions.
  • Results section contains values under standard conditions and at pressures between surface atmospheric and reservoir at reservoir temperature

Interface features

  • "Default values" button resets input values to the default values.
  • Switch between Metric and Field units.
  • Save/load models to the files and to the user’s cloud.
  • Export pdf report containing input parameters, calculated values and plots of the PVT properties.
  • Share models to the public cloud or by using model’s link.
  • Continue your work from where you stopped: last saved model will be automatically opened.
  • Download the chart as an image or data and print (upper-right corner chart’s button).
  • Export results table to Excel or other application.
