An engineering design study was performed on a gas-gathering system in a major offshore oilfield in Saudi Arabia. The dew point gas from separators will undergo retrograde condensation in the pipelines with reduction of pressure and temperature. Calculations presented for sizing the pipelines include phase behavior, pressure drop, temperature profiles, liquid volumes, flow pattern predictions, liquid flow rates and the minimum gas velocity required to continuously remove liquid from the risers.
