Learn how to get the best out
of PVTsim Nova

Within a company, new employees need training, more experienced employees move into a new field of work or the technologies of the company it-self move into a new field. Besides that the models and methods and the software used in the industry are constantly developing. These are all reasons for attending a course. The goal in either case is to be able to make the best out of the software, and to do it in the correct way. Training industry personnel on PVT and phase behavior of petroleum production systems has been key part of Calsep’s activities for the past 30 years.

Calsep offers open courses as well as in-house courses to reservoir engineers, process engineers, engineers dealing with flow assurance or multi phase flow metering, laboratory staff and others needing to apply PVT simulation software in their work.

With its mix of theory and hand-on exercises, the courses are appropriate for those wanting to get started using PVTsim and for those wanting to know the details of the models and methods used. Through the open book philosophy when it comes to documentation of models and methods, Calsep offers full insight into the internals of PVTsim.

The courses are taught by the engineers developing and using the software, giving the best pre-requisites for obtaining qualified recommendations on the use and in-depth knowledge about what the software does.

Calsep regularly hosts User Group Meetings (UGMs) at which the newest developments in PVTsim Nova are presented and the users get the chance to give feedback and make suggestions for new features and new models to be considered.
