Cont. Ed: Accelerated Learning Tutorial: Introduction to Flow Assurance
Target Audience: Those who are relatively new to flow assurance and are interested in learning the basic business and technical aspects of why this topic is of importance in field development.
Purpose:The purpose of this accelerated tutorial is to provide an introduction to the topic of flow assurance for engineers and geoscientists who may be aware of it but are not familiar with the salient details. A discussion of the origin of flow assurance will be presented as well as the primary areas of manifestation of flow assurance challenges. How these challenges are addressed will next be investigated including an introduction to the software simulation tools that represent the current state of the art of solution methodology. Finally, case studies will be presented and discussed that will demonstrate real-life instances of how flow assurance problems are assessed and the appropriate engineering analysis deployed.
