Q: Which correlation should I select for each of the multiphase fluid properties where a choice of correlation is available?

A: Every oil field is different. These correlations are based on data from a limited geographical area. The only way to determine which correlation is most accurate would be to compare results from each correlation to actual field data. The User Guide contains references to the sources of these correlations, so you can look up the equations used and determine which ones most accurately match your data. Alternatively, if you have laboratory test data for these fluid properties, and you are currently subscribed to the PC-PUMP Maintenance Plan, send your data to C-FER and we will prepare plots comparing your data to the results from each correlation, to assist you in determining which correlations to use.
