Abstract

A nonisothermal, 1D, compositional, two-fluid, multiphase hydrodynamic model is used to describe the incipient formation and dynamic behavior of condensate in a natural gas pipeline with undulating topology. The 26-in. [66-cm] diameter case study transmission pipeline traverses 180 elevation changes in its 30.72-mile [49.4-km] span. Results demonstrate the predictive and descriptive potential of the model in field applications and the significant effect of inclination and inclination changes on the hydrodynamics of gas/condensate flow in transmission pipelines. The model can serve both predictive and design purposes.
