A MODEL FOR CALCULATING THE SELF SUSTAINED GAS LIFT FLOW IN THE LAKE NYOS PIPES

Why do we need these degassing calculations? 

  • to make a safe design of the degassing system, through the knowledge of the radial pipe compression and the axial lift force
  • to optimise the efficiency of a whole scale degassing campaign, in respect to size and number of the pipes, depth of implementation, and duration of the campaign
  • to define the operating and shutdown procedures (location of valves, efficiency...)
