Paper Title:
The Effects of Low Flow Rate Gas Involvement on Oil-Water Flow in Horizontal Pipes
  Abstract

The experiments were conducted in a horizontal multiphase flow test loop (50mm inner diameter, 40m long) to investigate the flow of oil/water and the influence of an involved gas phase with low flow rate in horizontal pipes, specifically including oil/water flow patterns, cross-section water holdup and pipe flow pressure gradient. The experimental results indicated that the involved gas with low flow rate had a considerable effect on oil/water flow characteristics, which shows the complexity of gas/oil/water three-phase flow. Thus, this effect could not be ignored in design and operation management of oil/gas gathering and transportation system.
