OLGA Fundamentals (RILS - Remote Instructor Led Series)

The OLGA Fundamentals course is a foundation level course designed to give petrotechnical staff a broad understanding and practical skills in using the state-of-the-art OLGA software in the most regular production operations.  This particular course is also structured to be delivered remotely, yet still aimed to provide the same learning experience to the participants.

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.


  • Fundamentals of Multiphase Flow in Production Systems
  • Fundamentals of Heat Transfer in Production Systems
  • Introduction to Flow Assurance
  • Introduction to the OLGA GUI


  • OLGA Fluids and PVT
  • Fluid modelling in Multiflash


  • Pipeline sizing and insulation
  • Check flow stability / slugging
  • Flow assurance risk assessment for Hydrate and Wax

Module 4 – WELLS IN OLGA

  • Well inflow and Inflow Performance Relationship
  • Well Performance
  • Well Operations
  • Controllers in OLGA

Though it can definitely benefit all petrotechnical personnel in the oil and gas industry, it is specifically designed for engineers that work in the production operations and system surveillance such as:

  • Production Managers
  • Production Engineers
  • Production Technologists
  • Production Surveillance Engineers
  • Production Operations Engineers
  • Flow Assurance Managers
  • Flow Assurance Engineers
  • Process Engineers
  • Surface Facilities Engineers
  • and Reservoir Engineers

Below is a list of the content to be covered in OLGA Fundamentals RILS course: (subject to reviews and improvements)

  • Introduction to multiphase production hydraulics and thermal issues
  • Introduction to OLGA GUI
  • Fluid handling in OLGA
  • Introduction to the Flow Assurance concepts
  • Flow Assurance risk assessment for Hydrate and Wax
  • Overview of flow stability and its impact on production systems
  • Construction of a well model to simulate typical operational scenarios like shut-in and start-up
  • Introduction to controllers in OLGA
