Abstract

This study pertains to a carefully designed non-intrusive field experiment aimed at generating data for gas condensate pipeline. A compositional two-phase hydrodynamic model is used to analyze the system with a view of validating and tuning the model for field applications. The field test was designed as part of an existing gas distribution system to collect data on gas condensation and pressure drop in gas pipeline. A compositional two-fluid steady multiphase hydrodynamic model developed from fundamental fluid dynamics is used to describe the formation and dynamic behavior of the gas/condensate system. The results of production runs demonstrate the predictive capability of the model in terms of the basic engineering design variables for this system.
