Live Music Sponsored by:
Vance Alexander and Anthony Blaine have been providing a unique live music experience for all types of events since they founded New Soul Duo in 2013. In a short time, they have become one of Calgary’s most sought after live bands. This energetic power duo performs the top billboard songs from every decade with a fresh new feel. One of the most impressive aspects of New Soul Duo is their ability to deliver much more than a standard acoustic duo. They achieve the sound of a full band through harmonies, sweet guitar tones, kazoo, a one of a kind percussion drum setup.

This 1-day course is an introduction to thermodynamics and pressure-volume-temperature (PVT) and tuning parameters to fit laboratory data. Different analytical models for oil rate predictions such as Butler-Mokrys (1989) and Dunn-Nenniger-Rajan (1989) models will be discussed.
The following topics will be covered:
Introduction to thermodynamics and pressure-volume-temperature (PVT): basic law such as: Clausius-Clapeyron Equation, Dalton's law, Henry's Law and Raoult’s law are explained and practical examples such as temperature reduction in chamber due to NCG injection, and temperature reduction at Azeotropic point in ES-SAGD process will be solved numerically.
Pure Solvent Modelling: processes such as VAPEX and Nsolv will be explained, and different theories explaining the pure solvent oil rates such as Butler-Mokrys (1989) and Dunn-Nenniger-Rajan (1989) models will be explained and compared to physical models. Concepts such as onset of asphaltene precipitation will be discussed.
Steam-Solvent Modelling: ES-SAGD process will be explained and Gupta-Gittins(2012) and Rabiei–Harding–Abedi (2017) models will be discussed and numerically compared.
Production Challenges in Solvent Operation: Liquid-pool model and concept will be explained and concern with steam trap control for Nsolv will be discussed and numerically explained.
