Onshore gathering systems: multiphase flow modeling accuracy challenges

  title={Onshore gathering systems: multiphase flow modeling accuracy challenges},
  author={Elijah C. Kempton and Govind A. Hegde and Eric W. Smith},
As onshore oil & gas production begins to recover from the recent industry downturn, pipeline gathering system infrastructure is being expanded beyond the original design intent. Gathering system flow rates are increasing to handle additional production, supplementary pipework is being added at the edges of the gathering systems to accommodate new drilling, and some systems are considering switching from predominantly single-phase flow to multiphase flow. Hence, accurate multiphase flow… Expand


Comparison of Commercial Multiphase Flow Simulators with Experimental and Field Databases
Two commercial multiphase pipe flow simulators, OLGA ® 5.3 and LedaFlow ® , have been tested on laboratory and field data. Regarding the laboratory data, the results are comparable, however, two weakExpand
A model for predicting flow regime transitions in horizontal and near horizontal gas‐liquid flow
Models are presented for determining flow regime transitions in two-phase gas-liquid flow. The mechanisms for transition are based on physical concepts and are fully predictive in that no flow regimeExpand
