Entitled "Natural Gas Phase Behaviour in Pipeline", this project ultimately aims to
enable natural gas phase simulation using FLUENT to present a real time graphical
interpretation of the liquid, gas and component fractions. The studies of these
phenomena are important in the natural gas dehydration processes and its flow
through pipeline because the existence of liquid in the pipeline can bring detrimental
effects to operations. Water content in the gas system could cause large pressure
drop and corrosions that will be enhanced by the presence of H2S and CO2 typically
associated in sour gas. This research is the beginning phase of the development of an
emerging type of gas separation technology. Currently, the computation of gas phase
behaviour into simulator for this purpose is scarce and not easily found in FLUENT
environment. Hence, the scope of research covers the investigation of suitable
correlations/equations and subsequently computed, and simulated using the model.
Study of operating condition to achieve desired separation is also done once the
program has been developed and verified with other commercial software and
literatures. These correlations must be able to estimate the liquid and gas fraction in
the system, components liquid and gas composition, and the water content in the gas
system to certain acceptable degree of accuracy and defined limitations. The
research started with literature review to investigate suitable correlations, followed
by development using C++
