Taking into account safety consideration by looking holistically at production wells, pipelines, risers, process facility and the flare system
Process safety studies are often carried out with interlinked multiphase flow and dynamic process simulator. The dynamics of the wells, flowlines, topside process and the flare system are simulated under a common and integrated approach (from well to flare tip).
The approach complies with API Standard 521 regarding relief contingency cases, such as inadvertent valve opening, choke valve failure, gas blowby, blocked outlet and emergency de-pressuring.
A typical process safety study is powered by industry-standard simulators and BPT-developed efficient workflows driven by our production/process safety domain experts.
The following simulator extension Sim-Apps are normally included in such studies:
