Hydrate prediction in a subsea multiphase crude oil pipeline
Pipeline Hydrate Prediction calculator, HYD-PREDIC, predicts the section of vertical crude oil pipeline prone to formation of gas hydrates using black oil correlations for crudes of different parts of the world considering no slippage between liquid and gas phase or considering slippage between liquid and gas phase as per Beggs and Brill correlations or Mukherjee and Brill correlations. It calculates –
Hydrate prediction curve data with tabulation of sea water temperature profile, pipeline temperature profile and hydrate equilibrium temperature with pipellength with indication for section of pipeline prone to hydrate formation.
Hydrate prediction curve showing sea water temperature, pipeline temperature and hydrate equilibrium temperature vs. pipelength.
Variation of relative wt. percentages of oil and gas and various properties of oil and gas like density, viscosity, specific heat, thermal conductivity etc. with pipelength,
