Flow Assurance in Single Phase Liquid Systems

Course Credit: 0.1 CEU, 1 PDH

Flow assurance was born primarily out of the need to address complex, high-cost problems in multiphase flow, heat transfer, and phase equilibria/fluid properties in subsea wells, flowlines, and risers. In liquid systems, these problems either do not exist or are easier to address. For instance, paraffin deposition is a widespread issue in oil pipelines, but is routinely handled via pigging. However, other issues, unique to liquid transportation systems, arise. These include numerically difficult solutions, the need for simultaneous modeling on small and large scales, difficult thermal behavior, leak detection, pipe forces, batching, drag reduction, unusual fluids, slack line, and detailed control schemes and process equipment. The presenter has spent 20 years doing subsea flow assurance and the last five years focusing on liquid systems and has found them equally challenging. The presentation will compare and contrast liquid systems with subsea systems and provide practical examples of the single-phase issues.
