Empirical correlations were tested against reliable two phase pipe flow data for the prediction of pressure drop. Correlations are recommended for the prediction with stratified and annular type flows. When these correlations were adapted to three phase gaswater-oil pipe flow in general they predicted for intermittent slug type flows. Momentum balance models could not be successfully adapted to the prediction of pipe three phase pressure drop.
