Pressure-driven Steady-State Simulation of Oilfield Infrastructure

Abstract

Within the TINA research Project (Transient Integrated Network Analysis) and in partnership with Total, IFP is developing a new generation of simulation tool for flow assurance studies. This integrated simulation software will be able to perform multiphase simulations from the wellbore to the surface facilities. The purpose of this paper is to define, in a CAPE-OPEN compliant environment, a strategy to solve pressure-driven steady-state simulation problems, i.e. pure simulation and design problems, in the specific context of hydrocarbon production and transport from the wellbore to the surface facilities.
