Abstract

A nonisothermal, ID, compositional, two-fluid, multiphase hydrodynamic model was used to describe the incipient formation and dynamic behaviour 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 presented can serve both predictive and design purposes. (A)
