The formation of oil-water emulsions presents a major challenge for the petroleum industry. Emulsions in wells and flowlines cause higher viscosities and lead to larger pressure drops, reducing production performance.

The empirical modelling of emulsion viscosity as a function of water cut is presented. Measurement techniques for emulsion viscosity in a laboratory are explored and their use in a multiphase flow simulator to predict well and flowline pressure drops is explained. The reverse of this methodology can also be used with field data to back calculate the ostensible emulsion viscosity curve.

Well barrier installation practice is dictated by territory specific regulations which are largel...
