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.
