We recognise the importance of developing a clear operating philosophy early in the project and ensuring all parts of the development can deliver it.
We focus on a fully integrated approach to flow assurance even during the early phases. Our team endeavours to understand the fluids from reservoir to point of export and apply most suitable modelling approach based on the required complexity and fidelity. We manage the key development interfaces between subsurface, pipelines, facilities and process engineering disciplines guaranteeing that design decisions are made with a thorough understanding of how to maximise production and flexibility, minimise costs and ensure longevity of both the reservoir and the topsides.
Our team is exceptionally knowledgeable in our understanding of production assurance related risks and appreciates the importance of reliable fluid properties and correct application of laboratory data in supporting any analysis we do. We maintain close links with the main industry software suppliers and have significant experience in the application, use and troubleshooting of these programs for a wide range of analysis. Well versed in the industry standard multiphase flow simulation packages of OLGA & PIPESIM, our team also has experience of the applications of a number of alternative tools, including PIPENET, Maximus and Ledaflow.
In addition, we have developed in-house tools to support automation of our data management, simulation analysis, and result visualisations. These tools allow us to simulate large ranges of parameters in a short amount of time to improve early phase decision making, (check out FLUX to find out more). A combination of these techniques, alongside application of proprietary development and production logic, has resulted in an in-house IPM tool, backed by OLGA correlations, that allows us to conduct life of filed modelling quickly and efficiently to ensure the most robust development solution is identified.
