Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:
Explain and apply concepts of physical and analytical chemistry. Understand equation of state. Define the commonly used terms in thermodynamics. Explain the first law of thermodynamics. Solve numerical problems based on the enthalpy.
Describe solutions and ways of expressing concentration. Know Henry´s Law and its application. Describe the kinds of solutions. Understand the principles of electrochemistry and electrolysis and their applications.
Define relevant concepts and parameters in solvent extraction processes. Know the principles and methods for liquid-liquid extraction. Know which liquid properties are essential when using these methods.
The course will equip students in laboratory experiments on reservoir rock and fluid properties, oil well cementing and drilling fluids. It will also equip students on petroleum production operations.
Production simulator overview: oil process cold start; bring on stream remote station, well testing. Determination of rheology: viscosity, fluid loss determination, etc of drilling fluids. Determination of thickening time and compressive strength of cement. Core analysis: determination of porosity, permeability, saturation, and overburden pressure.
