I am working in a conceptual study for transportation pipelines. And the project sponsor demonstrates an interesting in work with two fluids in the same line. In others words, in a moment it will operate with LPG, and other moment it will work with C5+ (natural gasoline). So I would like to know if there is any restriction about this. And in case there is not restriction, please inform an example in the world. Thanks, Aline Maria

Dear Aline María,


You need a fluid barrier for to minimize the contamination (mixing) of these products.


In our case we employ a quantity of kerosene for to change between products.


You can search "Poliducto Shushufindi-Quito (Ecuador, South America)" in this pipe (same pipe) many years ago (I think this continue) we send LPG, nafta (low octane 65 RON), kerosene, JP-4, and diesel.
