Software solution: Flowmaster V7

Flowmaster V7 is a thermo-fluid system simulation software tool that allows oil and gas system engineers to investigate pressure surge, pressure drop, flow rate, temperature and system response times – removing the uncertainty from fluid flow systems.

The astronomical cost of downtime combined with the high safety requirements has meant that organisations are using Flowmaster V7 to reduce uncertainty through the use of system simulation. 


Flowmaster V7 - Key Software Capabilities


System Modelling & Simulation

  • Pressure surge analysis, temperature and fluid flow rate prediction
  • Steady State and Transient simulation of Incompressible and Compressible systems with Heat Transfer analysis
  • Rigorous Energy Balance Solver enables engineers to model the Joule Thomson effect along long pipelines.
  • GIS Import Tool for importing pipeline data in addition to the associated database files for engineers to
    review position, length, elevation, and a visual
    preview map to understand the layout of the system.
  • Extensive catalogue of component models - In-built empirical data
  • Fast batch simulation analysis
  • Pipe flow balancing - optimising component sizes
  • Intuitive graphical user interface featuring validated data entry, for reducing margin for error and dynamic colour rendering of simulations.

Simulation Data Control

  • Secure storage of networks, performance data, components and results centrally in an industry standard relational database
  • Audit trail of model design history with ‘roll back’ functionality
  • Open API and SDK development tools for extending and integrating into existing product development and optimisation systems.
