The gas-condensate liquid viscosity is recorded as a function of Pressure, Temperature and Solution gas to oil ratio (GOR) or normally presented as Rs using constant volume depletion experiment. All three aforementioned parameters of pressure, temperature and GOR strongly define the true characteristics of gas-condensate reservoir fluid below the saturation pressure, hence condensate liquid viscosity. The units for each factor are as follow: The pressure recorded in Pounds per square inch absolute (psia), Temperature recorded in degree Fahrenheit (F), solution gas to oil ratio corrected from Standing correlation and recorded in standard cubic foot per stock tank barrel (scf/STB) and condensate liquid viscosity is measured and recorded in centipoise (cp). The data can be used in modelling condensate liquid viscosity as a predominant factor in modelling and simulation of gas-condensate reservoirs below the saturation pressure. This also helps better performance modelling of such reservoirs and increase production efficiency.
