  • Hydrate inhibition of storage / hydraulic fluids and umbilical flushing characteristics

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 03/25/2021 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Assumptions have been made about the hydrate inhibition characteristics of hydraulic / storage fluids in umbilicals due to the inclusion of MEG, but AFS has tested a dozen fluids to better assess their hydrate inhibition characteristics and develop the curves. The curves will be provided within this presentation and shared with the community. In addition, a short discussion on the displacement of umbilical fluids with production chemicals and the laboratory testing performed versus the calculated results utilizing laminar flow.
