The Pipeline Efficiency application helps to ensure flow assurance, to identify optimal pigging frequency and to reduce pumping energy.
Required throughput must be obtained at the lowest operating cost. Deposits like wax
The Pipeline Efficiency application indicates pressure deviations from optimal operation and notifies the operator in advance to initiate cleaning scraper runs when the calculated efficiency falls below a certain level. Efficiency values are recorded to to identify how quickly deposits affect a pipeline and to adjust the pigging frequency. Pumping energy consumption can be compared for maximum and minimum efficiency.
The application utilizes pressure and flow profiles of the RTTM.
