Abstract

The individual well streams are brought into the main production facilities over a network of gathering pipelines and manifold systems. The purpose of these pipelines is to allow setup of production "well sets" so that for a given production level, the best reservoir utilization well flow composition (gas, oil, water), etc., can be selected from the available wells. Short pipeline distances are not a problem, but longer distances may cause a multiphase well flow to separate and form severe slugs – plugs of liquid with gas in between – traveling in the pipeline. Severe slugging may upset the separation process and cause overpressure safety shutdowns. Slugging can be controlled manually by adjusting the choke, or by automatic slug controls. Additionally, areas of heavy condensate may form in the pipelines. At high pressure, these plugs may freeze at normal sea temperature, e.g., if production is shutdown or with long offsets.

Presented research work points the highly renowned problem of energy saving that is especially actual for Ukraine rich in «mature» oil and gas field. This article is compilation of data concerning the frequency and details of various methods of how to improve the operating efficiency of gas-condensate and oil field gathering and transportation system. The results of this work covers the flow-lines, trunk-lines and transmission line of oil and gas condensate leases, and can be used for gas fields with significant amount of water vapors in  natural gas composition. As opinion of authors the enhancing of pipeline efficiency means reduction of excessive pressure loses which for volumetric reservoirs leads to decreasing of well-head pressure and hence to evaluated daily gas productions. The results can be used to enhance both the efficiency and reliability of the gathering systems.

Keywords: gas pipeline, pigging, method, application, effectiveness, reliabilitу.
