Production and Transport
FloWax allows modeling the wax deposition directly from within the network model, making it possible to estimate the effect of the deposit and/or the proposed mitigation strategy, over the whole asset, rather than offline.
FloWax® is a powerful and accurate modeling tool for simulating and predicting wax deposits along pipelines. FloWax conjugates the most reliable and advanced thermodynamic wax precipitation model, with the fastest and most versatile thermo-hydraulics and network simulation technology, to enhance the capability of engineers to optimize the design and operations of the facilities to maximize production and assess the risks to the flow.
Inaccurate assessment of the risks associated with wax deposition in pipelines may lead to excessive CAPEX and OPEX for over-conservative design or operational solutions or catastrophic failures with blockages and production losses.
With FloWax, engineers can make wax risk assessment directly at the heart of the transport and processing facilities model, where flow assurance issues may occur in reality and where the best solution and the most value lie, avoiding over-conservative approaches that may jeopardize the economics of the project while operating safely.
Wax accumulation is a serious threat to production and processing facilities. Wax can deposit along the pipelines or in vessels that obstruct the flow and ultimately damage operations. You will learn in this webinar how to prevent and manage the risk of wax precipitation and deposition.
