Model Comparison for Phase Equilibrium in Heavy Oil-/Steam-/Solvent-Related Systems

During reservoir simulation, it is common to use an equation of state (EoS) to accurately model the fluid properties. One important property is which phases form and how the components split among the given phases (the phase equilibrium). In heavy oil recovery, there is often a mixture of light and heavy hydrocarbons with water. It is common to use enhanced recovery techniques such as steam injection. It is therefore necessary to utilise an EoS which is accurate over a large temperature (and pressure) range.
