The proper calculation of foamy oil properties is the major step in the simulation of foamy oil flow. In this study, a methodology for including the dynamic processes in the calculation of foamy oil properties, using molar variables is proposed. The basic foundation of the model rests on the theoretical results and experimental observations of nucleation, bubble growth and decay. By matching the calculated results with experimental data, the model is verified. This method of calculating foamy oil properties provides the basics for developing numerical simulation models of foamy oil flow. In addition, the results of this model can also be useful for well testing analysis in foamy oil reservations.
