In a word, with Schlumberger PIPESIM software, it is possible to calculate the correct amount needed to meet the challenges of fluid flow and production optimization.
One of the biggest concerns of engineers is the safe design of wells and pipelines so that the liquids produced reach the process facility safely and cost-effectively. The foundation of proper modeling of production systems is based on the following three main scientific areas, all of which are included in PIPESIM:
Multiphase current modeling:
Pipesim employs a wide range of industry standard multiphase current correlations as well as advanced three-phase mechanistic models. This model makes it possible to calculate the flow structure, fluid latency, material motion characteristics, and pressure reduction of all stations along the production path.
Liquid Characterization Modeling:
PIPESIM offers two choices for the user, one is related to industry standard black oil concepts, and the other is a range of hybrid models of equation states. Depending on the application, users can choose from a wide range of features in the software to model a wide range of fluids.
Heat Selection Modeling: Accurate prediction of heat transfer is critical in calculating the temperature of the desired fluid properties in the system, the formation of solids, and in principles for all global heating designs. PIPESIM performs energy balance calculations calculated for a variety of heat transfer mechanisms.
Ensuring safe and efficient fluid transfers: Modern manufacturing systems need designs that ensure fluids are transferred safely and efficiently from tanks to process equipment. The fact that these systems exist in difficult environments, such as deep-water areas with complex infrastructure, or on large piers, adds many factors to such designs. Ability to accurately simulate a wide range of scenarios and conditions has been used in the PIPESIM steady-state multiphase flow simulator, which is used as the current flow simulation tool in the design of production systems.
Production optimization: When a production system is put into operation, the ability to ensure optimal production is critical to achieving maximum economic potential. Here, too, PIPESIM software provides a complete set of workflows – from the right choice to get the job done to identifying and migrating workflow challenges and even optimizing the completed system online.
Steady state multiphase current simulator: PIPESIM software is a steady state multiphase current simulator . PIPESIM models multi-phase currents from the reservoir to the source. The efficiency of flow and surface line equipment can be calculated to produce complete production system analyzes. PIPESIM software can be integrated with the operating software production platform of Petrel E&P and Avocet to provide a single solution and a complete simulation from tanks to production.
