Invensys Introduces Improved Interface for Multi-Phase Flow Simulator

New Delhi, New Delhi India (PressExposure) July 09, 2009 -- As part of its strategy to continue to expand its partner ecosystem, Invensys Operations Management, a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the process and manufacturing industries, today introduced an improved interface for multi-phase flow simulation for the upstream oil and gas market. Developed in conjunction with SPT Group, a leader in dynamic modeling for the oil and gas industry, the new solution links OLGA®, SPT Group's market-leading simulator for modeling and simulating the flow of oil, water and gas in wells, pipelines and receiving facilities, and Invensys Operations Management's SimSci-Esscor DYNSIM® simulation program.

"As part of our dynamic simulation engineering and operator training simulator platform, the new interface includes improved numerical integration, easy-to-use, drag-and-drop configuration and the ability to view dynamic profiles of key parameters of the OLGA pipeline model from within the DYNSIM program," said Tobias Scheele, vice president of advanced applications, Invensys Operations Management. "It's another example of a successful cooperation between two leading companies, and we look forward to working with SPT Group to deliver another best-in-class solution for the mutual benefit of our oil and gas clients."

Through dynamic lifecycle simulation and online modeling, the interface improves design, control system checkout and operator training. Additionally, it allows flow assurance engineers to more easily model integrated operations of subsea production system and topside processing facilities, such as platforms, floating production, subsea-to-beach plants, storage and offloading facilities, and new floating liquid natural gas plants. Furthermore, the solution can be used to virtually test and model the plant's integrated process and control systems to reduce control system commissioning time. It also supports the development of high-fidelity training of control room operators.

Invensys Operations Management and SPT Group also plan to integrate the DYNSIM simulation program under SPT Group's edpm® online solution, which enables high-quality modeling for online monitoring and advisory of integrated multiphase production and processing facilities.

"We are excited to work with Invensys Operations Management to develop and test the new interface," said Knut Erik Spilling, senior vice president, e-Field Solutions, SPT Group. "The DYNSIM program includes an easy-to-use interface that provides excellent visualization features. A superb integrated engineering and operator training simulator needs to have the capabilities of high accuracy, speed and numerical robustness. OLGA and DYNSIM technology will successfully meet that need, and it will help our clients achieve a quicker return on their investment and greater efficiencies in the lifecycle operation."
