Surface and Production Systems: Flow Assurance and Pipeline Systems Production Engineering

With a focus on the delivery of hydrocarbons from the source to the point of sales in a safe, efficient, and profitable manner, the surface and production systems team helps clients understand the critical issues in the design and operation of the production system and applies state of the art simulation technologies and know-how to develop the best possible production solutions.

We have two practice areas:

The ultimate goal is to define the optimal pipeline, storage, and process facilities infrastructure along with the necessary operating strategies to address all flow assurance challenges and system design constraints.


Typical studies and services include:

  • Multiphase flow analysis for slugging and liquid management
  • Wax deposition modeling and development of wax management strategy
  • Hydrate formation assessment and development of mitigation strategies
  • Production optimization and debottlenecking studies
  • Chemical injection system design
  • Artificial lift system design
  • Liquid hammer studies
  • As-built system evaluation and production planning
  • Pigging analysis and pigging program development
  • DST data review and reservoir fluid PVT characterization
  • Integrated production modeling of subsurface, transport, and process facilities
  • Flow assurance support for field development from concept selection to detailed design


Our engineers are specialized in:

  • Developing an understanding of the chemical makeup of the produced fluids
  • Determining the changes that the produced fluids undergo in the production system
  • Establishing the locations where chemical changes affect flow capacity
  • Designing the operating strategies to manage the adverse affects that chemical changes generate in flow paths
