Wax Deposition and Hydrate Transport Modeling for Flow Assurance and Its Application in Field Design
Recorded On: 09/26/2019
To minimize capital costs, operating companies are choosing to produce oil and gas through longer and longer subsea tie-backs. Transportation of multiphase gas, oil and aqueous mixture over long pipelines under high pressure and low subsea temperatures present some unique challenges. One of the most important challenges in flow assurance for such more common long pipeline designs is the possibility of blockage due to hydrate formation and/or wax deposition.
This webinar will describe the wax deposition and hydrate transport models chosen and the importance of its integration into a generic, but well proven multiphase transient simulator framework. The use and importance of these integrated flow assurance models will be briefly demonstrated through a field conceptual design application with results.
