New Software Release

PIPESIM 2018.1 Now Available

Wednesday, 09 January 2019

Product details

The PIPESIM steady-state multiphase flow simulator enables the design and diagnostics of oil and gas production systems - from reservoir to processing facility. The PIPESIM simulator is used to model well performance, conduct nodal analysis, design artificial lift systems, model pipeline networks and facilities, and develop field production plans.

The PIPESIM simulator leverages a variety of fluid property correlations, multiphase flow correlations, and inflow performance relationships to generate an accurate description of your production systems.

Release updates

Salama model for erosion calculations
PIPESIM 2018.1 exposes the Salama erosion model in the user interface (UI), eliminating the need for keywords to use this option.

Spot reports
In PIPESIM 2018.1, spot reports are available through the UI. Spot reports can be added in a well or surface location to provide additional reporting at that specific location. Examples include flow maps, phase envelopes, and heat transfer data. Spot reports may be produced for the following operational tasks: PT Profile, System Analysis, Nodal Analysis, Data Comparison, and Network Simulation.

Downhole injection point
Injection points are now available both as surface and downhole equipment for easy inclusion from the UI. The injection point can be used to inject fluid at any location within the system.

Python Toolkit updates
The Python Toolkit now includes support for new operational tasks. These include:

  • Well Curves generation
  • System Analysis
  • Gas Lift Diagnostics
