Products and Services
Digitalisation Technology and Services
Digitalisation is one of the key strategies you can adopt in pursuit of operational excellence.
Pipeline Networks and Flow Assurance
Maximus provides steady state, thermal hydraulic network models capable of handling the world’s most complex pipe networks.
Petro-SIM is the leading process simulation and optimisation platform for driving excellence in facility performance and organisational productivity.
Our Multiflash fluid property engine underpins the pipeline and simulation tools of the entire hydrocarbon industry due to its scope and accuracy.
Driving Flow Assurance with KPI Setting, Analytics and Digital Twin Tech
Knowledge and information is useless unless you are going to do something with it. Whilst big data presents many opportunities, it can also paralyze an organisation and hinder the speed of decision making.
Effect of the Thermodynamic Model and Parameters in Process Modelling
In this paper, we analyse the effect of the choice of the thermodynamic model, in the context of fluid modelling for the purposes of process simulation in oil and gas applications.
Successfully Harnessing Digital Technologies
In this viewpoint we outline the barriers to successfully turning data into dollars, and how new approaches which synthesize existing and new tools and competencies are beginning to cause a disruptive step change in performance for those able to capitalise.
