Computational Fluid Dynamics in Offshore Oil and Gas

News CD-adapco will host a webinar on Computational Fluid Dynamics in Offshore Oil and Gas on March 19, 2009 at 15:00 GMT (11 AM EDT, 16:00 CET).

The ongoing push for more new produceable oil and gas reservoirs is leading the industry into greater offshore depths and harsher environments. The challenge of developing and producing from fields at depths greater than 5,000 feet requires workers to operate unproven technology in harsher environments (greater ocean pressure, lower temperature, different well fluid temperatures, pressures, compositions).

Sponsor CFD Review

The traditional design approach and rules for developing equipment/systems for more shallow offshore purposes doesn’t work effectively (or at all) in these deeper, harsher environments. Once outside their traditional "comfort zones" of past experience, what can petroleum and marine mechanical engineers do to verify/validate whether their ideas/proposed designs will actually work?

Guest Speakers

Mike Wells, Director of R&D, Hughes-Christiansen (Division of Baker-Hughes)
Mr. Wells will cover a variety of CFD Applications in Oil and Gas Drilling and Completions. Topics include drill bit design and optimization, cementing, gas lift and well design to accommodate gas production in planned ESP completions.

Ivar Iversen, Technical Director, Prospect Flow Solutions (Subsidiary of Hallin Marine)
Mr. Iversen will look at current challenges oil & gas engineers are facing and how they are using advanced simulation tools to provide information to decision-makers in the industry. Mr. Iverson will explore specific examples include lifting analysis involving splash-zone entry, dropped object and other impact simulations, iceberg pipeline interaction and subsea structure stability.

In addition, this online webinar will discuss how CD-adapco's STAR-CCM+ can be used for accurate flow, thermal, and stress simulation in Virtual testing and validation via 3-D physics.
