Correlation predicts pressure drop in gas-condensate pipelines

A simple, easy-to-use correlation has been developed to estimate pressure drop in gas-condensate pipelines. The research is based on data from Iran's Kangan gas-condensate field.Gas condensation is common in natural gas pipelines, but a simple-to-use correlation has been needed to estimate pressure drop accurately in preliminary design calculations of these pipelines.Furthermore, in existing pipelines, changes in flow parameters and conditions result in a change in the pressure drop in the pipe.The aim of this study is to develop a simple correlation based on existing data from Kangan gas field for the pressure drop estimation in gas-condensate pipelines.Other methodsThere are two tec...
