When liquids in wet gas fall out and sit in the pipeline, it can affect more than pipeline flow properties. Large amounts of uncontrolled liquid can cause harmful slugs that can damage processing and other gas operating facilities. In addition, liquid that sits in the pipe system tends to collect debris, creating a site for localized corrosion and making compressors work harder to push product along, which can increase operational costs.
