Thank you for your interest in our workshop!

Flow assurance and subsea system engineering are an integral part of deepwater oil and gas exploration and production. Harsh environments combined with high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) wells present significant engineering challenges.

Prominent engineering companies address these challenges through the use of industry-leading CFD technology: CD-adapco’s STAR-CCM+. Computer-aided engineering methods are routinely used to analyze flow assurance and subsea systems. This seminar will provide a background on the benefits of engineering simulation to help you gain deeper insights into the performance of subsea equipment and engineering challenges.

The seminar will include guest presentations from FMC Technologies and MSI Kenny on the use of CFD in real-world projects, as well as a hands-on session with STAR-CCM+.
