Pipe Roughness

In non corrosive environment oil or gas wells tubing may

behave like smooth pipe

Absolute Roughness , is the mean protruding height of pipe

roughness

tightly packed sand grains giving same pressure gradient behavior as the

actual pipe.

Absolute Roughness

Relative Roughness

Diameter of pipe

= d in.

Friction Factor

Rough Pipe:

In turbulent flow the effect of wall roughness on pressure

loss in pipes depends on both the relative roughness and

the Reynolds number

If a thick laminar sublayer of liquid exists in the boudary layer

adhering to the pipe wall, the pipe behaves as a Smooth

pipe.

Characteristic

More than one phases flow through everycross section of the pipe

Cross section occupied by a fluid phase

continuously change in the direction of

flow due to slippage between phases

Ratio of this cross section for any phase,

over the whole pipe cross section is

defined as the Holdup (HL) for the liquid

phase

22

Definition of Variables

In multi-phase flow calculations,

Single-phase flow equations are modified

Involves mixture expressions for velocity, fluid properties

with weighting factors

Based on in-situ volume or mass fraction - holdup

Weighting factors are flow pattern dependent

Example: For Liquid-Gas flow, if HL is the weighting factor

for liquid,

m = L H L + G (1 H L )

23

No-Slip Holdup

In oil-water flow,

watercut fw is defined

as,

Where, f0 = 1- fw

Under no-slip

condition, volume

fraction of liquid, L

Where, L = 1- G

qw

fw =

q w + qo

qL

L =

qL + qG

24

Note!!

For Holdup: HL + Hg = 1

No-slip Holdup: L + g = 1

Watercut: fO + fw = 1

25

Velocities

occupies the entire pipe area, Ap

Mixture Velocity (vm): Sum of phase superficial

velocities

qL

vSL =

Ap

vSg =

qg

vm =

qL + q g

Ap

= vSL + vSg

Ap

26

Because of the slippage between phases, liquid velocity

will slow down compared to gas in uphill flow and the vice

versa in downhill flow.

Actual velocities vL,vg and slip velocity vs are,,

Mixture Properties

L = o fo + w f w

L = o fo + w f w

L = o f o + w f w

Mixture Properties

Numerous weighting rules used by different

authors, eg. For mixture viscosity,

s = L H L + g (1 H L )

or , s = L

or , n = L L + g (1 L )

Mixture Properties

Slip or No-Slip condition

Numerous weighting rules used by different

8.

Start from the bottom segment L(more accurate ?) Why?? And

estimate the end of segment pressure

Estimate avg. p and T in the segment

Calculate Fluid props in the segment at this avg. p & T

Calculate the end of segment pressure, if it is not the same as the

assumed one in step 2

1.

Continue the iteration using standard methods such as NewtonRaphson or Wagsteins till it converges within acceptable

tollerance

Now assume the second segment end pressure and repeat steps 2-5

When the surface terminal segment is reached, the calculated

pressure must match this given terminal pressure.

If not, either follow the steps 1-7 till a match is obtained or

graphically solve like in the with systems approach
