We have helped companies assess and mitigate flow assurance risks in a variety of projects:
Slug catcher sizing for a Nigerian pipeline. Analysis showed that the size could be reduced by 50%.
Assured Flow Solutions
Provided consultancy services helping define flow assurance risks for North Sea operators by reviewing available PVT and laboratory data. Recommendations of risk management solutions and further required analysis were done.
Delivered a four days flow assurance course to operational and engineering personal, focusing in the way flow assurance and production chemistry can help support production.
Flow assurance studies during detailed design. Providing confirmation of the system configuration, as required for the procurement schedule. Confirmation of minimum and maximum temperatures and pressures in an HPHT field.
Pace Flow Assurance
Flow assurance during EPIC, providing confirmation of the field design and assessing whether proposed changes would have an impact on flow assurance risks.
Assessment of liquid management options for several North Sea fields where changes in production philosophy were necessary to keep fields in production. The following have been performed: assessment of slug sizes and pigging requirements during multiphase transportation to shore, assessment of the feasibility of hydrocarbon evacuation through alternative routes, tuning of models to match actual production data and use of those models to predict the new conditions after the production changes are implemented. Producers: ONE, Dana, and Petrogas.
Assessment of asphaltene risks for a North Sea oil field operated by Wintershall. Available fluid data was analysed to determine whether asphaltene problems were expected to be present in the reservoir
