From Pipe-It it is possible to launch any application or script as part of an integrated project, either run locally on your computer or from a network cluster.

  • Commercial 3-rd party applications
  • In-house applications
  • Custom scripts

Pipe-It orchestrates the order of execution, and determines what parts of the project needs to be updated. Pipe-It also recognizes the sections of the project that needs to be re-run and runs only that.

A flexible, easy-to-use, and generic interface is used to transfer data to and from any file-based application.

Tie-In Evaluation

Pipe-It Tie-In Evaluation enables accurate modeling of the effects of tying in a new field to existing infrastructure and the impact this has throughout the entire value chain.

Interactions between the production from new tie-in fields and the production from existing fields can be complex and non-intuitive. The whole value chain can be affected in terms of quality of the final products, capacity limitations in shared facilities, and flow assurance issues. These effects are difficult to model manually. To see the full picture, all parts of the production system need to be brought together within an integrated asset model.

Pipe-It Tie-in Evaluation can be used to get a detailed overview of the effects potential tie-in fields have on the entire value chain. Determine the impact tie-ins will have on total asset economics, shared facilities, and final product quality.

Reservoir-Network Integration

Pipe-It Reservoir to Network Integration consistently connects any reservoir model(s) with pipeline network models to account for surface constraints to optimally adjust reservoir rate controls.

Reservoir management involves setting rules for well and group rates as a function of time to ensure best possible recovery from the reserves. Often such well rates run into bottlenecks on the surface facility and network system since their effect is not adequately handled by the reservoir models.

This solution bridges the gap by evaluating the surface constraints at user-defined time steps and letting the reservoir management update the model well and group controls accordingly to achieve a better forecast for the field, incorporating surface limitations.

Flow Assurance

Pipe-It Flow Assurance Solution facilitates users to seamlessly connect flow assurance models with upstream reservoir dependencies, or downstream network/process dependencies.

This solution has an easy to use graphical interface to connect to any input / output parameter in OLGA models and enables you to:

  • Run flow assurance and reservoir simulation models in loop until convergence.
  • Optimize pipe design.
  • Identify bottlenecks in production system.
  • Adjust production profiles to honor flow assurance constraints.

Proxy Model Development

Pipe-It Proxy Model Development makes it possible to build and tune simplified proxy models as replacements for time consuming full-physics models in conventional engineering applications:

  • Well / reservoir models
  • Process simulation models
  • Flow assurance models

Pipe-It Streamz technology can be used as a proxy model for full-physics process models:

  • Tuned to k-values from the full-physics model or as a series of flash calculations
  • Runs in a fraction of the time, can process multiple time steps in one go.

And to automatically create simplified models for other parts of the production system:

  • Tune well IPR curves to reservoir simulator output or measured test data.
  • Generate interpolation tables for pressure drop in pipes by exercising full-physics pipe models.

Using Pipe-It’s Proxy Model Solution allows running multiple scenarios in a fraction of the execution time of full-physics models, with sufficient level of detail.

Sales Product Forecasting

Pipe-It Sales Product Forecasting couples your reservoir models with process simulation models to accurately forecast future changes in sales product rates and qualities.

Volumetric or simplified compositional fluid streams from reservoir simulators are consistently and accurately aggregated and converted to the fluid description required by the process simulator.

Contributions to the different sales products can be traced back to each reservoir, even to individual wells. This makes it possible to study how compositional changes in produced fluids affect final sales products.

RNB Reporting

Pipe-It RNB Reporting makes it easier and more efficient to compile the yearly reports of the National Budget (NB) and Revised National Budget (RNB) to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.

With this solution, users can save time with an automated process requiring only updated reservoir models as input.

Human errors and other handling errors are eliminated as data is automatically transferred to RNB Excel reports.

Workflow Automation

Pipe-It Workflow Automation can replicate and automate any complex workflow, e.g. multiple complex Excel files with manual interaction.

This allows you to:

  • Transfer data between spreadsheets, databases and files automatically, consistently.
  • Run applications and scripts with ease.
  • Collect important parameters and KPIs in a unified environment from an unlimited number of file resources integrated within the Pipe-It project.

Executing the entire workflow is done by the push of a button, making complex workflows previously understood by only a few, readily understood and executed by many.

Human error is eliminated while the entire workflow remains transparent and easy to maintain. Automated checks of workflow results is used to minimize errors associated with multiple, complex Excel files.
