Paper Number: BHR-2019-137
... for high pressure applications to quantify flow structures. 1 INTRODUCTION During the extraction of oil from a well, a multiphase flow exists which comprises time-dependent ratios of oil, water and gas. The ratio of the 3 phases will lead to various flow patterns dependent on the ratios of gas...

... behavior, specifically flow pattern. Current two-phase flow mechanistic models were developed, validated, and tuned based on low-liquid viscosity two-phase flow data for which they show accurate flow pattern predictions. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of liquid viscosity on two...

... facility processes – to be able to handle multiphase flow, and the different flow patterns that could be promoted through pipelines. In the case of heavy and extra heavy oil fields, hydrodynamic slug flow is the most common flow pattern. For this reason, it is important to know how this flow pattern...

In the transitional region from stratified to slug flow patterns, a different and coherent flow structure has been observed. This flow pattern has been classified as pseudo-slugs consistent with the existing literature...
