The Symmetry process software platform uniquely integrates the modeling of fields, pipe networks, process plants, and flare systems. It provides an unprecedented level of collaboration and cooperation among teams to seamlessly transfer knowledge and expertise and maximize the total value of the asset.
The Symmetry platform contains a proven thermodynamic fluid representation that can be used throughout the simulator and an integrated dynamic mode tailored for each workspace that can be used when required.
Tailored workspaces—optimized facility
Each flowsheet in a simulation model can be solved in steady-state or dynamic mode, and different types of flowsheets provide tailored workspaces for models of processing facilities, pipe networks, or flare systems. The steady-state solver in the pipe and flare workspaces provides a unique combination of a pressure flow network solver and a sequential solver, depending on the specifications.
The Symmetry platform includes the following tailored workspaces:
VMGSim (process): World-class process simulation for facilities and plants
Pipe: Rigorous dynamic and steady-state multiphase modeling for complex pipe networks
Flare: All-inclusive relief system analysis with integrated pressure safety valve (PSV), network header, and stack design
Field: Fully integrated gas reservoir and multiphase gathering system simulation with forecasting functionality
