Schlumberger PIPESIM: Steady-State Multiphase Flow Simulator v2017.1 built 932 [Size: 1.28 GB] ... The new generation in multiphase flow simulation to overcome fluid flow challenges and optimize production. Tired of repetitive manual tasks? The Python toolkit empowers you to quickly perform many functions, ranging from model building and calibration to running simulations, without opening the PIPESIM UI. This is particularly useful for performing repeated actions such as bulk model updating and running batches of simulations. Additionally, the wide variety of freely available Python packages makes it easy for you to leverage the latest advancements in data science, machine learning, and other fields by integrating these tools with the PIPESIM simulator. The power and flexibility the Python ecosystem enables you to develop complex multistep workflows that can be shared. The GIS component has been significantly updated with PIPESIM 2017 to share the same visualization technology as the Petrel E&P software platform. The result is a significant improvement in performance, up to 5 to 10 times better for interacting with large networks, which can now include several thousand wells. One of the most useful new features is the ability to display results directly on the GIS model diagram using color gradients for rapidly analyzing results to identify flow assurance risks as well as find opportunities to improve production. The ability to quickly capture elevation data makes building models fast and easy. The new ESRI data source has global coverage, is more accurate than previously available services, and enables you to capture bathymetry data for subsea flowlines. Other improvements help you build and update models even faster. You can now extend existing networks by incrementally importing Shapefiles to create new wells and pipelines. Flowlines can be easily split to create junctions for tie-ins of new flowlines and wells.....

Schlumberger OLGA v2016.2.1 [Size: 778 MB x64] ... Dynamic Multiphase Flow Simulator: The industry-standard tool for dynamic multiphase flow simulation. Maximize production and minimize risk: Successful production system design and operations requires a detailed understanding of multiphase flow behavior. Flow modeling and simulation provides valuable insights into flow behavior, including the physics describing flow through the entire production systems, from reservoir pore to process facility. The OLGA dynamic multiphase flow simulator models time-dependent behaviors, or transient flow, to maximize production potential. Transient modeling is an essential component for feasibility studies and field development design. Dynamic simulation is essential in deepwater and is used extensively in both offshore and onshore developments to investigate transient behavior in pipelines and wellbores. Transient simulation with the OLGA simulator provides an added dimension to steady-state analyses by predicting system dynamics such as time-varying changes in flow rates, fluid compositions, temperature, solids deposition and operational changes. From wellbore dynamics for any well completion to pipeline systems with all types of process equipment, the OLGA simulator provides an accurate prediction of key operational conditions involving transient flow. Key flow simulation applications: The OLGA simulator enables key flow simulation applications, including: liquids handling + sizing separators and slug catchers + managing solids + simulating key operational procedures including start-up, shut-down, and pigging + modeling for contingency planning + assessing environmental risk in complex dee​pwater drilling environments.

Practicing engineers in the offshore engineering industry will find in this contributed handbook practical information on current oil field production development practices for foundations and subsea flowlines. The technical challenges associated with deepwater developments have led to significant innovations. The contributors are practicing engineers and academics who have been at the forefront of offshore geotechnic development for several decades. Until the 1980s, the most common design concerns for offshore foundation and pipeline engineering were associated with extreme storm loadings, earthquakes, mudflows, fatigue, and installation activities. Engineers today face additional concerns, including: submarine slope failures, thermal buckling of pipelines, catenary riser interaction with the seafloor, vortex induced vibration of flowlines, shallow water flows encountered during drilling operations, and thermal interaction of pipelines with permafrost. Deepwater Foundations and Pipeline Geomechanics describes recent advances in geophysical data acquisition and evaluation as they relate to offshore developments, as well as foundation and pipeline design considerations. The presentation is focused on deepwater geotechnics as well as subsea and Arctic pipeline design considerations, but engineers will find much of it applicable to other situations. Key Features: --Describes deepwater foundation issues and the corresponding site investigation requirements --Illustrates the use of integrated geophysical studies in field architecture planning, geohazard investigations, planning geotechnical investigations and foundation selection --Demonstrates the application of centrifuge modeling techniques for soil-structure interaction and introduces the application of risk analysis to foundation design with example applications --Discusses geomaterial models and features necessary for their successful application to various foundation problems and includes illustrative examples for suction piles, flowline-soil interaction and more --WAV offers downloadable spreadsheets to calculate soil-pipe interaction responses, spreadsheets demonstrating reliability calculations, color versions of geophysical profiles, and example Abaqus analysis input files for analyzing lateral buckling of subsea flowlines, available from the Web Added Value Download Resource Center at jrosspub.com

This manual provides appropriate analytical concepts to address the principles of buried steel pipe design and attempts to correct misusage of the 1958 Modified Iowa Formula. The most current work of Dr. Reynold K. Watkins and others is presented in this book to develop the external loading design concepts provided. The goal of "Buried Flexible Steel Flexible Steel Pipe" is to offer sound information on the structural design and analysis of buried steel pipe - for water and wastewater - consistent with the latest pipe/soil design concepts of the industry. In conjunction with the external design of the pipe/soil interaction, the manual addresses internal pressure design, vacuum and external fluid pressure analysis, and many other non-standard conditions pipe designers will likely encounter. This manual will be valuable to students and professionals involved in pipe design.

The development of oil and gas fields offshore requires specialized pipeline equipment. The structures must be strong enough to with stand the harshest environments, and ensure that production is not interrupted and remains economically feasible. However, recent events in the Gulf of Mexico have placed a new importance on maintenance and reliability. A new section; Condition Based Maintenance (CBM), introduces the subject of maintenance, written by Tian Ran Lin, Queensland University of Technology, and Yong Sun, CSIRO Earth Science and Resource Engineering. Two of the main objectives of CBM is maximizing reliability while preventing major or minor equipment malfunction and minimizing maintenance costs. In this new section, the authors deal with the multi-objective condition based maintenance optimization problem. CBM provides two major advantages: (1) an efficient approach for weighting maintenance objectives, and (2) a method for specifying physical methods for achieving those objectives. Maintenance cost and reliability objectives are calculated based on proportional hazards model and a control limit CBM replacement policy. Written primarily for engineers and management personnel working on offshore and deepwater oil and gas pipelines, this book covers the fundamentals needed to design, Install, and commission pipeline projects. This new section along with a thorough update of the existing chapters represents a 30% increase in information over the previous edition. Covers offshore maintenance and maintenance support system + Provides the fundamentals needed to design, Install, and commission pipeline project  + Methods and tools to deliver cost effective maintenance cost and system reliability
