Assuring unimpeded flow from the reservoir to the refinery has game-changing impact on field development. Unnecessary investments can be avoided, when engineers are able to characterize and understand the fluid phase behavior controlled by the flow dynamics and production chemistry in wellbores and flow lines.
This webinar presents an holistic approach to flow assurance. The course will introduce technologies, workflows and their deployment for the identification, characterization and management of flow impediments, such as slugging and precipitation of organic and inorganic solids. The webinar will present best practices and
fit-for-purpose design solutions for minimizing the risk of flow stoppage while transporting hydrocarbons from “Pore to Sales Meter”. The principles will be demonstrated using field examples from around the world.
