Producing unconventional petroleum fluids is different to producing conventional petroleum fluids, and the same applies to pre-drill petroleum properties prediction.

In the webinar we will present recent case studies on how we use a combination of MSSV-pyrolysis and PVT modelling in the PhaseKinetics approach to successfully predict bulk petroleum composition and physical state (GOR, number of phases, saturation pressure) in conventional plays, and on how and why the same protocols have to be adjusted for fluid property prediction in unconventional settings.



Nicolaj Mahlstedt studied Applied Geosciences and holds a Ph.D. from the Technical University of Berlin. Since 2013 he is a Petroleum System Analyst at GEOS4, a service provider specializing in predicting bulk petroleum compositions in conventional and unconventional plays using compositional kinetic modelling and PVT. He is also active as a guest scientist in the Organic Geochemistry group at GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, Potsdam, Germany
