How do you size a line for a two-phase flow of emulsion and produced gas? What is the best method to get accurate results? What should be the design criteria?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Design for two-phase flow of emulsion, gas line2 July 2007 at 1:29pmIn general, without knowing the individual properties and component flows of the emulsion and produced gas stream, the gaseous flow will be the dominating phase for the design and considerations for mixed phase flow such as entrained droplet at relatively high velocity should be taken into account. System reliability is often achieved in separation of the gas and liquid upstream rather than downstream; depending on the relative flow rates of the phases separation may be achieved via a flash system or if the liquid flow is small, liquid separators or traps.
