Oil and gas are discovered in remote locations far away from local market in many offshore or onshore fields around the world. It must be gathered, processed and transported through pipelines of various diameters for long distances (hundreds of miles) under varying temperature conditions. Liquid condensation occurs in natural gas pipelines in addition to liquid cut associated with gas wells. A lot of obstacles such as slugging, hydrate formation, scale formation, corrosion (erosion). Oil production also has many obstacles such as Wax deposition, Asphaltene deposition, Gel formation, Etc.These obstacles result in financial loss due to interruption of production or damage the assets. Thesechallenges have led oil and gas companies to focus on new term called flow assurance. This paper promotes study for a new discovery in the Egyptian Western Desert and identifies some possible mitigation actions to be able to transport oil production from location to oil plant. Using OLGA multiphase transient simulator (version 2017.2.0), and Multiflash 6.1. PVT simulation to generate the fluid property tables used within OLGA
