A comparison of oil-water slip velocity models used for production log interpretation Academic Article uri icon


  • The accuracies of five slip velocity models that can be used to interpret production logs in oil-water flow have been examined using the flow loop data of Davarzani and Miller. Optimal values of the constants used in the models were determined for each model; the abilities of each model to predict oil and water volumetric flow rates from measured values of water holdup and mixture velocity were then tested. The empirical model of Nicolas and Witterholt performed the best of the models tested. 1992.
