PVT Properties of Oil, Gas, and Water (Add-in for Microsoft Excel)


Dr. John McMullan of the LSU Craft and Hawkins Department of Petroleum Engineering has created a Microsoft Excel add-in for calculating the physical properties of petroleum fluids. Modeled after the popular but no longer manufactured Hewlett Packard Petroleum Fluids Pack for their HP-41 series programmable hand-held calculators, Dr. McMullan has designed a spreadsheet add-in to work on personal computers.

Please read the documentation for additional information on installation, functions, and nomenclature.
