Features of Pipeline Network Design

Pipeline Network Design improves profitability and performance in companies across the globe by using proven solution algorithms, modern production methods, and software analysis techniques to create a robust and efficient oil field design and planning tool.

Pipeline Flow Analysis

Pipeline Network Design provides a comprehensive set of industry standard empirical and mechanistic methods for analysing multiphase flow phenomena in pipes. Coupled with extensive fluid models and a rigorous energy balance incorporating a detailed heat transfer analysis capability, Pipeline Network Design is a flexible tool for evaluating the complete range of fluid flow phenomena encountered in single-phase and multiphase pipelines.

Field-Wide Network Modeling

The robust, field-proven network simulation capability enables the user to model large networks of connected wells, pipes, and associated facilities. The detailed well bore model and extensive inflow performance (IPR) library, combined with a complete set of surface equipment modules, allows you to configure the necessary details of a field-wide oil and gas gathering (or injection) system, and incorporate all of the interdependent components from the sandface to the downstream separation facilities.

Production Planning

The time-stepping feature in PIPEPHASE makes it a flexible field planning tool. Once a field-wide network model has been built, the planning tool is created by setting up scenarios for future facility expansion along with reservoir decline characteristics. The completed model provides a unique look-ahead capability for the entire asset, incorporating the long-term effects of both reservoir decline and investment in new facilities.

Integration with Reservoir Simulation Software

Oil producers have a real, quantifiable problem managing and modelling their reservoirs and linking them to the surface. Pipeline Network Design has the modelling capabilities needed to accurately manage and model reservoirs by developing an interface with reservoir simulators and enhancing pipeline technology.
