Gas Formation Volume Factor

In this section, I would like to make sure that you can easily describe the behavior of your gas formation volume factor at any reservoir pressure. Therefore, I will give you brief technical notes by answering three questions.
The behavior of gas formation volume factor at any reservoir pressure
Behavior of the gas FVF vs. pressure
Why does the gas formation volume factor increases as pressure decreases?
The gas formation volume factor indicates how much the gas volume would change as a response to the change in pressure. As pressure decreases, the gas sharply expands due to its high compressibility. As a result, the gas formation volume factor increases as well. Actually, almost all the black oil properties respond differently to the decrease in reservoir pressure.
What are the PVT properties that affect the gas formation volume factor estimated value?
The gas formation volume factor is strongly dependent on the values estimated for the gas z compressibility (deviation) factor.
What are the PVT properties that depend on the gas formation volume factor estimated value?
The gas viscosity, the gas density, the gas isothermal compressibility, the total formation volume factor, and the gas-oil surface (interfacial) tension are all strongly dependent on the gas formation volume factor estimated value.
