PHASE BEHAVIOR OF GLYCOL IN GAS PIPELINE CALCULATED
J. N. J. J. Lammers Shell Research B.V. Amsterdam Transportation of wet, CO2-containing gases in pipelines requires special measures to prevent corrosion of the pipe wall. A relatively new option uses injection of glycol, the presence of which in the water phase mitigates corrosion. A method has been developed for calculating the phase behavior of glycol in such wet CO2 pipelines. Composition of the glycol-water condensate in the pipeline is one essential in determination of the corrosion rate.
