The formation of hydrates and other solids like waxes, asphaltenes and scales, is a major concern in the oil and gas industry, that could result in decreased production levels, safety issues, and even plant shutdowns. To prevent or mitigate the risks associated with flow assurance, operators often inject chemical inhibitors and retardant into the flow. Whereas for hydrates inhibitors, these chemicals are fairly well established and known, for waxes, asphaltenes or scales, the use of chemicals may trigger or enhance dangerous side effects.
This webinar will cover:
- how data driven production and flow assurance can achieve significant savings through adaptive smart production management
- optimal chemical injection with flow monitoring
- dynamic adaptation of operating strategy to optimize production
- the challenges posed by the changing conditions in operating assets
- the integration of well-established flow assurance modelling packages with supervisory control & data acquisition systems, to provide enhanced monitoring and management capabilities over the occurrence and mitigation of flow assurance risks
