The measurement of oil reservoirs and their performance with hydrocarbon reservoirs is used to distinguish the properties of reservoir fluids, which is significant in various reservoir studies. As a result, in the various oil industries, adopting the appropriate methods to obtain accurate property values is very important. The current paper is about a case study of the BUZURGAN Oilfield and how the PVTp software was used to predict phase activity and physical properties. To understand the properties of fluids for the reservoir and phase behavior, the black oil model and the equation of state (EoS) model are used. (Glaso) correlation is used to calculate the bubble point strain, solubility, and formation volume factor. The Beal's correlation was also used to measure viscosity, while the equation of state (EoS) model was used to determine phase behavior and density. Furthermore, the properties of PVT were discovered using the software, and the results were compared to laboratory analysis of PVT, with suitable models being displayed. According to the findings, the used model has the highest saturation pressure, which was chosen for use in reservoir management processes and the preparation of a geological model to reflect the field later. It is clear that the program is appropriate due to the accurate dependence of PVT measurements on laboratory tests in the case that tests are required during the reservoir's productive existence.
