Module Goal: To highlight the important properties used to characterize natural gas and condensate systems.
Module Objective: To present the most popular models for estimating properties of natural gas and condensate systems.
- 19.2: Joule-Thomson Coefficient
- Whether or not a gas cools upon expansion or compression — that is, when subjected to pressure changes — depends on the value of its Joule–Thomson coefficient. This is not only important for natural gas pipeline flow, but also for the recovery of condensate from wet natural gases.
- 19.3: Viscosity
- Whether you are interested in flow in pipes or in porous media, one of the most important transport properties is viscosity. Fluid viscosity is a measure of its internal resistance to flow. The most commonly used unit of viscosity is the centi-poise.
