Invensys, SPT develop interface for multi-phase flow simulation

Invensys Operations Management and SPT Group have developed an interface for multi-phase flow simulation that links SPT Group’s OLGA simulator for modeling and simulating the flow of oil, water, and gas in wells, pipelines, and receiving facilities and Invensys Operations Management's SimSci-Esscor DYNSIM simulation program.

PLANO, Texas -- Invensys Operations Management and SPT Group have developed an interface for multi-phase flow simulation that links SPT Group’s OLGA simulator for modeling and simulating the flow of oil, water, and gas in wells, pipelines, and receiving facilities and Invensys Operations Management's SimSci-Esscor DYNSIM simulation program.

Through dynamic lifecycle simulation and online modeling, the interface improves design, control system checkout, and operator training, the companies say. Additionally, it allows flow assurance engineers to model integrated operations of subsea production system and topside processing facilities, such as platforms, floating production, subsea-to-beach plants, storage and offloading facilities, and new floating liquid natural gas plants. Furthermore, the solution can be used to virtually test and model the plant's integrated process and control systems to reduce control system commissioning time. It also supports the development of high-fidelity training of control room operators.

Invensys Operations Management and SPT Group also plan to integrate the DYNSIM simulation program under SPT Group's edpm online solution, which enables modeling for online monitoring and advisory of integrated multiphase production and processing facilities.
