Improved K-factors correlation for yemeni crude oil components using PVT laboratory data
In this study, the laboratory data for different Yemeni crude oil sample are used to test accuracy of empirical correlations used for predicting crude oil equilibrium ratio. Statistical techniques were used to evaluate these correlations. Statistical comparison of currently published correlations shows that absolute relative error range between 548% and 748.97% An improved correlation for Yemeni crude oil is developed for predicting K-values. This correlation was obtained by multiple-linear regression analysis. The new K-factors correlation was found to be an improvement over most published correlation.
