Hi, There is some example about separator sizing. I don't know how to define condensate flow rate from given GOR
Given parameters:
Gas = 10 MMscfd
GOR = 10 bbl/MMscf condensate
no water produced.
Condensate density 700 kg/m3
Gas is 0.02 CO2, 0.9 C1, 0.01 C2, 0.02 C3, 0.02 iC4, and 0.03 C5


What you've written isn't GOR,it's the inverse which is CGR or condensate to gas ratio.

At 10 bbls / MMscf and with 10 mmscf you will have 100 bbls per day.

I knew something is wrong. Thank you so much for your help


Thing to note is that these numbers are at "standard" conditions". The actual amount you get in a separator can be more or less depending on pressure, temperature and composition.

Take a volume of "condensate" at 70 bar and then flash it off to atmospheric pressure and your volume of condensate could reduce by 70% or more as the light ends flash off and dissolved gas is removed. Hence everyone gets exited by volumes being "lost", but in reality the total mass remains the same, just in a different state ( gaseous) and not liquid.

You need HYSYS or something similar to get actual volumes being encountered.
