Pipework erosion is increasingly becoming an issue within the oil and gas industry. Many assets are ageing and statistics suggest that the majority of wells now produce sand. New, high-rate subsea wells are particularly vulnerable to erosion, and the consequences of failure are significant.
CFD technology provides a key tool to better understand erosion and thus optimize the design of production systems, reduce risk and ultimately increase our customers' profits.
The presentation will give an overview of erosion assessment at Xodus:
How CFD is used to refine our understanding of erosion in oil and gas production systems. Example applications and comparison with test and field experience
The advantages of CFD over alternative approaches
Challenges and further refinements to standard CFD methodology
Information on the presenter:
Neil Barton has been using CFD to solve problems within the oil and gas industry for 22 years, both at British Gas and the National Engineering Laboratory, before joining Xodus Group in 2012. He has a particular expertise in multiphase flows, flow metering and erosion.
