CFD Simulation for Flow Assurance & Subsea Engineering
Thursday, January 22, 2015

Reliable subsea system and pipeline design and effective flow assurance strategies are integral to successful deepwater oil and gas exploration and production. Remote environments and extreme operating conditions combined with high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) wells often present significant engineering challenges.

Today’s lower oil prices, putting pressure on R&D budgets, are pushing companies to reduce product and solution development costs, without compromising quality or safety. Leading engineering companies address these challenges through the use of engineering simulation technology.

Who should attend?

If your work relates to the fields of subsea engineering or processing, flow assurance or marine operations, this webinar will provide you with an introduction to how simulation is now routinely helping in fields including:

  • Design of subsea equipment (including trees, manifolds and PLETs)
  • Processing (pumping, separation, valves and slug catchers)
  • Integrity issues such as:
    • Erosion
    • Flow-induced vibration of jumpers, manifolds and risers
  • Hydrate prevention and insulation design
  • Well containment
  • Marine operations and equipment installation

Whether you are new to computer-aided engineering (CAE) and simulation or are already working in this field, this webinar will provide a background on the benefits of engineering simulation to gain deeper insight into the performance of subsea equipment and engineering challenges.

Guest Speaker: Dr. Matt Straw of Norton Straw Consulting

Dr. Matt Straw has been working in the field of engineering simulation for around 20 years and applying this technology to the challenges of the oil and gas industry for the last 15 years in areas including subsea thermal design, integrity management and subsea processing. His experience includes subsea projects in the harsh marine environments of the North Sea, ultra deepwater developments of West Africa to the complexities of the Artic. Matt now works for Norton Straw Consultants providing engineering and management consultancy services to the energy industries.
