One of the important processes in retrieving oil is transportation of the oil from offshore to onshore facilities using pipelines. However presence of drag in the pipelines imposes various problems and one of them is increase in the pumping power needed in order to maintain constant flow rate throughout the pipelines. In order to reduce drag in pipelines, drag reducing agent (DRA) is introduced. Through years of researches, DRA is proven to be able to reduce drag in pipelines thus increases the crude oil‟s flow rate
