Based on two-fluid approach, a numerical model coupled with phase behavior model and hydro-thermodynamic model, is presented for simulating steady-state two phase flow in gas-condensate pipeline. In this model, two-fluid model is adopted for hydraulic computation and a simplified mixture energy equation is developed to couple hydraulic and thermodynamic calculation. SIMPLE algorithm is improved for application in one-dimensional steady-state simulation of two phase flow. Hydraulic and thermal is coupled as one-way coupling. The model was validated through comparison to field data from five operational gas-condensate pipelines. It turns out that the numerical simulation in this paper has good stability and convergence and is capable of simulating the steady-state flow in gas-condensate pipelines.
