Flow Phenomena in Jumpers - Relation to Hydrate Plugging Risk (07121-1603a)

The University of Tulsa - Principal Investigator:  Dr. Michael Volk, Jr.

Objective:  To understand the behavior of hydrate formation and transport in subsea jumper configuration during well restart events. This improved understanding will promote development of well start-up procedures which minimize potential hydrate plugs.
Period of Performance:  September 22, 2008 to January 21, 2010
