Variation of Crude Oil Properties with Temperature in a Gathering Line

Written on January 1, 2015 at 12:00 am, by

In the October and November 2014 Tips of the Month (TOTM), we demonstrated that Gas-Oil-Ratio (GOR) has a large impact on the capacity of crude oil gathering lines. If GOR is less than the saturation solution gas, the increase in GOR reduces the viscosity and density of crude oil which causes the pressure drop toContinue Reading
