Summary and Info
This book presents the fundamentals of multiphase production with regard to flow simulations in multiphase pipelines, multiphase pumping and multiphase metering. It gives first a description of the multiphase flow patterns that may appear in a pipe and explains how they are managed by the models. It also offers a good introduction to modeling of hydrodynamic effects, thermodynamics and thermal exchanges. Multiphase pumps are now deployed in fields, whether onshore, offshore or subsea, all over the world, where natural reservoir pressure is insufficient. The book presents the various multiphase pump concepts and explains their operating principles and how they can be introduced into a production system. An adequate instrumentation system is needed to monitor and control the performance of such systems and multiphase meters are increasingly used in place of conventional test separators, both offshore and onshore. This book provides the basic principles of multiphase metering, which relies on a combination of elementary measurements, and particularly the means to meter the oil, gas and produced water flowrates in multiphase conditions.
