    Learning Objectives

    • Module Goal: To highlight some of the important applications of phase behavior in production operations.
    • Module Objective: To highlight the use of phase behavior for the description of gas pipelines, gas metering and hydrate systems.

    • 21.1: Natural Gas Pipeline Modeling
    • 21.2: The Hydrate Problem
    • 21.3: Gas Metering
      Gas measurement is another area of hydrocarbon engineering where accurate prediction of the P-V-T properties of the working fluid is especially critical. One of the most widely used meters used in the measurement of gas flow is the orifice meter. Orifice meters are classified as inferential meters because the gas volume is calculated from readings of pressure variation as the gas passes through an orifice, and it is not obtained by a direct reading.
