OLGA is increasingly being used for Online Flow Assurance Management in Upstream Oil & Gas operations. This presentation will describe how the world’s leading transient multiphase flow simulator (OLGA®) is used online to replicate current operations and provide a transparent production system with model-based instrumentation. Future events can be predicted through the use of look-ahead and what-if simulation to improve the operation of multiphase production facilities.

The presentation will start with a discussion on gas, liquid and thermal management challenges before moving onto the key components of OLGA Online, OLGA integration with the control system, modes of operation, model building and tuning.

The Gjøa Flow Assurance System (FAS) will be used as a case study.
