Key words: field, mixture of liquid and gas, computer model, collection system, calibration.
In the present time project institutes use different programs for oil and gas field’s hydraulical calculations. In this article the method of calibration of the computer model of the oil and gas field made in one of the existing software is overviewed. The use of the developed method allows the engineer to refine computer model of the field, employed on the initial stage of designing, using current exploitation data from the field, and choose the correct calculation formula for the studied multiphase flow.
