Realistic flare system capacity evaluation, in particular for tie-in candidate feasibility projects

Introduction:
Process simulators tend to underpredict the pressures in the flare system. There are other dedicated tools that are considered better when performing flare system analysis (e.g. Flarenet and UniSim Flare). The BPT-FSG close this gap by facilitate extraction of flare data from process simulator to flare system analysis tool.
 
Usage areas
 
For a tie-in project, one key question is whether the existing flare system on the selected host candidate has sufficient capacity to handle the relief from the increased production and/or feedstock change resulting from the tie-in. The answer on this key question is often crucial regarding economic viability of the tie-in project. The BPT-FSG address this in an accurate and efficient way.
 
Likewise, the BPT-FSG could be used in all sort of flare analysis related to dynamic scenarios and simulations.  
 
What is FSG?
 

FSG is an extension to dynamic process simulator adding key functionality to carry out realistic simulation of flare system capacity.

FSG tracks flow rates, pressures, temperatures and compositions of all selected relief sources in a dynamic model. It captures the tracked data for peak flow rates and exports selected scenarios. FSG provides graphical analysis of captured data.

FSG facilitates file format from process simulator imported directly into flare system analyzers like Flarenet and UniSim Flare.

The FSG application software comes as an extension for UniSim from Honeywell, Petro-SIM from KBC Advanced Technologies and Aspen HYSYS from AspenTech.

Benefits and key findings:
  • Facilitate realistic simulation of flare system capacity
  • Efficient extraction of flare data from process simulator to flare system analysis tool
  • Address the key question for a tie-in project, whether the existing flare system on the selected host candidate has sufficient capacity to handle the additional relief scenarios
  • Used in all sort of flare analysis related to dynamic scenarios and simulations
