slug two phase volume calculation


This spreadsheet calculates the mean slug length and slug volume due to multiphase flow in a pipeline. The methodology is based on published work of T.J. Hill and D.G. Wood on prediction of slug frequency in multiphase pipeline in the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) journal. The spreadsheet uses English units. Generally slug length and slug volumes are calculated using sophisticated and expensive pipeline flow assurance software such as PIPESIM, PIPEPHASE and OLGA.

What's New in Version 1.1 (See full changelog)

  • 1. There was error in formula of liquid holdup (Hl) in original file. The same has been corrected in Rev. 1 based on Beggs and Brill correlation for liquid holdup in horizontal pipelines for segregated flow and considering no-slip.
  • 2. All holdups (Hle, Hls, Hlb and Hl) are dimensionless quantities indicating vol. fractions and mentioned as such in Rev. 1
  • 3. Original file had erroneously mentioned slug volume (Qslug) as ft3/s in results. Same has been corrected to ft3 in Rev. 1.

Dear Ankur,


This is a very good spreadsheet with all basics explained. Thanks a lot for this spreadsheet n ur sincere efforts in helping the process engineers who don't have access to expensive SW´s like OLGA n PIPESIM.

However I have seen that if the pipeline size is above 30" the results are negative, is this only valid till a pipeline size of 30"??
