    OLGA Flow Assurance (Remote Instructor-Led Series - RILS)

    This OLGA Flow Assurance (5 days RILS) training is an extended version of the OLGA Fundamentals course to facilitate a 5 days remote session.  It combines the content of the OLGA Fundamentals (RILS) with Slugging and Liquid Surges from Module 3/Lesson 2 and Pipeline Pigging from Module 4/Lesson 1 of the Flow Assurance with OLGA training.

    Though this particular course is structured to be delivered remotely, it still aimed to provide the same learning experience to the participants, giving petrotechnical staff a broad understanding and practical skills in using the state-of-the-art OLGA software.  

    The participants will first get introduced to the most fundamental background theories and concepts in multiphase flows, the hydraulics and thermal issues commonly known in operations, the basics of Flow Assurance concepts and practices.  Then they will be able to model the production systems and simulate the typical scenarios to predict, prevent, and analyze different and potential challenges being encountered in the day-to-day operations.

    The course can benefit anyone with interest in multiphase flow phenomena and in resolving production operation issues related to flow assurance.  Nevertheless, it really is designed for:

    • Production Engineers
    • Production Operations Engineers
    • Production Technologist
    • Petroleum Engineers
    • Surface Facility Engineers
    • Process Engineers

    • 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 depressurization
    • Evaluation of hydrate formation risk and inhibition

    No prerequisites for this course.
