Simulation and optimization

Pipeline networks and flow assurance

Maximus provides steady state, thermal hydraulic network models capable of handling the world’s most complex pipe networks. Combining the functionality of petroleum engineering software with the detail of process / flow assurance engineering tools, Maximus is the ideal tool for bridging the gap between surface and subsurface. FloWax provides multiphase fluid dynamics with wax deposition modeling capabilities, indispensable for flow assurance and production applications.

Leading pipeline networks and flow assurance software

Our pipeline networks and flow assurance software is proven on a wide range of the most complex upstream oil and gas systems in the world. Designed by engineers for engineers, they make integration with other engineering disciplines and quality assurance easier than ever before.

Both Maximus and FloWax integrate fully with our Multiflash and Petro-SIM solutions.

Applying process engineering levels of fidelity, Maximus offers high-powered functionality and ease of use to improve speed, reliability and cost-effectiveness of any flow assurance or production forecasting study.

FloWax allows you to predict the thickness and physical properties of wax sediments along the pipeline. Pressure and temperature of bulk fluid can also be predicted, as can the physical properties of the gas, hydrocarbon liquid and aqueous phases.
