1.NYMEX crude oil price reaches 4-month high
As onshore oil & gas production begins to recover from the recent industry downturn, pipeline gathering system infrastructure is being expanded beyond the original design intent. Gathering system flow rates are increasing to handle additional production, supplementary pipework is being added at the edges of the gathering systems to accommodate new drilling, and some systems are considering switching from predominantly single-phase flow to multiphase flow. Hence, accurate multiphase flow modeling is required to make key project decisions because small amounts of multiphase flow can significantly impact pressures in large gathering systems.
