Pipesim simulator

Steady-state flow assurance, from concept to operations


Modern production systems require designs that ensure safe and cost-effective transportation of fluids from the reservoir to the processing facilities. Once these systems are brought into production, the ability to ensure optimal flow is critical to maximizing economic potential. From complex individual wells to vast production networks, the Pipesim steady-state multiphase flow simulator enables production optimization over the complete lifecycle.

The Pipesim simulator includes advanced three-phase mechanistic models, rigorous heat transfer modeling and comprehensive PVT modeling options. The ESRI-supported GIS map canvas helps deliver true spatial representation of wells, equipment and networks. Networks can be built either on the GIS canvas or automatically using a GIS shapefile. Rapid well model building and analysis are done with an interactive graphical wellbore. The implementation of a new parallel network solver, which spreads the computational load across all processors results in a faster simulation runtime.
