Hydraulic fracturing is a new technique which is used in oil yield to maximize its own production. The pumping of fracturing slurry flow through tubing collar can cause considerable mass loss of inner surface materials. This may pose a significantly potential risk even a well loss. Especially, the erosion phenomenon is particularly serious in the structure of variable diameter. Numerical simulation in this paper was used to get particle impact parameters, and it is combined with jet experiments to find out the main factors of BG-13Cr mass loss. Finally, the equation with experimental data was applied to predict erosion rate of premium connection cross-over joint inner wall.
Key words: premium connection / erosion rate / numerical simulation / Jet flow experiments
