Terrain slugging in near horizontal oilwells

Fozard, J. (2001) Terrain slugging in near horizontal oilwells. Masters thesis, University of Oxford.



In this thesis we consider the problem of terrain slugging in near horizontal producing wells. We formulate a simple model for stratified two-phase flow, and consider the linear stability of steady states. We then study the possibility of the formation of roll waves, and make a tentative attempt at a resolution of the problem.
