Flow Assurance Studies

Overview Library

Flow assurance is a multidisciplinary process designed to prevent pipe blockage and help ensure uninterrupted, optimum productivity in oil and gas streams. The studies involve sampling, specialized lab testing, and production and facilities engineering. Specific services include hydrate testing to determine the temperature and pressure conditions of hydrate formations in reservoir fluids, testing to evaluate the effectiveness of chemical inhibitors, and reservoir flow testing to detect and characterize precipitated solids that inhibit flow, such as waxes and asphaltenes.
