Simulation and optimization

Pipeline networks and flow assurance

Our latest digital technology provides more accurate production forecasts; optimizes designs faster; represents processing equipment better and has more powerful estimation of deposition of waxes. It will enable you to catch costly technical issues early in the project, avoid excessive design margins accumulating between engineering disciplines and optimize operating costs.

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.

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

Both Maximus and FloWax integrate fully with our Multiflash and Petro-SIM solutions for a full asset digital twin.
