OLGA Flow Assurance (3 days)

During this three-day course, you will learn how OLGA dynamic multiphase flow simulator is used to understand and solve typical flow assurance challenges.

This interactive and practical course includes step-by-step instructions to build and run simple transient simulation models. Key operational procedures are covered, like shutdown, start-up and depressurization. Best practices and workflows are also presented for liquid and hydrate management, slugging recognition and mitigation, and fluid handling in OLGA.

All the main features of the OLGA GUI are covered, allowing you to easily build, edit and run models, create parametric studies, and view the results.

Anyone interested in gaining a general understanding of OLGA dynamic multiphase flow simulation to address flow assurance challenges

Learning activity mix
  • Introduction to multiphase production hydraulics and thermal issues
  • Introduction to OLGA GUI
  • Fluid handling in OLGA
  • Introduction to the Flow Assurance concept
  • Modeling a pipeline using the Pipeline editor
  • Simulation of terrain slugging mitigation, hydrodynamic slugging and usage of OLGA Slug tracking
  • Construction of a well-pipeline-riser oil system to simulate typical operational scenarios like shut-in, cool down, start-up and depressurizationdepressu
  • Evaluation of hydrate formation risk and inhibition

No previous experience with OLGA is necessary, but a general knowledge of pipe flow and thermodynamics is an advantage.
