Abstract

A new analytical equation is derived based on the continuity and momentum equations for gas flow in pipelines, without neglecting any terms in the momentum equation. The equation provides a functional relationship among inlet gas density, outlet gas density, gas mass flux, length, I. D., inclination, wall friction factor, and the isothermal sound speed in pipeline. It can handle any pipeline configuration, including horizontal, vertical and inclined pipelines. The new flow equation is presented, which is used for different cases of practical interest. Bottomhole pressure (BHP) calculations in flowing vertical gas wells and inclined long-distance gas pipeline design calculations are carried out to test the efficacy of this new flow equation. Excellent agreement between the predicted results and measured field data is obtained.
