Perturbed-Chain Statistical Associating Fluid Theory (PC-SAFT) was employed for predicting thermodynamic properties of natural gas mixture. Thermodynamic properties like density, isobaric and isochoric heat capacity, enthalpy, entropy, and internal energy were calculated with the PC-SAFT. Results are validated against experimental data for natural gas and mixtures similar to natural gas. The validation show that the Average Absolute Deviation (AAD) for density is 1.10% for binary mixture and 1.08% for mixtures similar to natural gas. Also AAD value for enthalpy is 1.42%, for internal energy, 0.77, for entropy, 0.43, for isochoric heat capacity, 1.26%, and for isobaric heat capacity, 2.66%. Results show PC-SAFT to be able to predict all the thermodynamics properties of natural gas and mixtures similar to natural gas with high accuracy in a wide range of temperature and pressure.
