Proof-of-Concept MASS-Dynamic Flow Model

Proof-of-Concept MASS-Dynamic Flow Model

Nova Systems was engaged to develop a Proof-of-Concept for a mass-dynamic flow model of a major CSG-LNG gas gathering system. The system resolves mass flow on a faster-than-real-time basis to provide operators with an understanding of the pressure conditions within the gathering system. This enables calculation of the available line pack within the system which is used to predict the survival time of wells given a downstream compression failure or interruption. Accurate prediction of well survival time will provide operators with the confidence to appropriately avoid or delay well curtailment, leading to a reduction in well loss due to compression challenges, without lost production.

The requirement for a detailed operational model was drawn from Nova System’s work to address the gas producer’s Operational Resilience. Improved understanding of the gas gathering system will enable fine control of the upstream asset. This will increase operational freedom and allow for better planning of field and maintenance activities. Fine control of the gathering system will enhance operational aspects throughout the asset.

Delivery of the system relied upon Nova System’s strong relations with key supporting technology providers in the modelling & simulation and Internet-of-things industries. As a technologically agnostic solution provider, Nova works with a range of suppliers to always deliver best-of-breed solutions to key clients.
