In this paper, the process of oil-gas-water three-phase separation by gravity vertical metering separator is numerically simulated by CFD methods.
The variation of water will have an impact on the viscosity and density of well fluids mixture, thus affecting the flow condition in the metering separator, further influencing the separation efficiency.
(1) confined to the production flow rate range of oilfield, the efficiency of metering separator would increase with the augmentation of well fluids flow rate;
