Given the fact that irregular and unpredictable flow leads to abnormal operations, maintaining consistent production flow in a pipeline is critical to operators. In order to ensure the safe and economical transport of fluids, ROSEN supports customers with a fully integrated flow assurance consultancy by modeling steady state and dynamic flow behavior.
Corrosion, cleaning, and inspection programs require a thorough technical understanding of the thermodynamics and hydraulic fluid behavior in the pipeline, from design to normal operation to decommissioning scenarios. By better analyzing these factors, it is possible to significantly optimize these programs.
We are pleased to invite you to a free webinar in which we will outline how to successfully build and run a flow assurance study, allowing you to significantly optimize pipeline operation and effectively support corrosion, cleaning, and inspection management. The webinar will provide a technical overview and present case studies to highlight flow effects on corrosion, inspection, waxing, slugging, and wet gas/multiphase. Furthermore, leading industry standard codes like PIPESIM and OLGA will be referenced. The webinar will be presented by our experts in flow assurance, Ramesh M. Ladwa and Ashwin Pinto.
This webinar will be presented live twice at:
- 8 AM London time (GMT) - May 17, 2017
- 5 PM London time (GMT) - May 17, 2017
Senior Flow Assurance Engineer
Ashwin Pinto has over 14 years’ experience in the oil and gas sector, mainly in upstream and midstream systems. Ashwin joined ROSEN to lead the Flow Assurance team, which supports the integrity services and field operations. His expertise lies in dynamic process simulations and flow assurance engineering using industry codes such as OLGA, Ledaflow, Maximus, Pipesim, Flowmaster, HYSYS, UniSim, Aspen Plus, Flarenet etc. He has led several technical engineering studies for various oil and gas clients. He holds a first-class honors degree in Chemical Engineering from Manipal University, India, and is an associate member of the Institution of Chemical Engineers.
Senior Corrosion Engineer
Marguerite Forde has over 6 years’ experience as a corrosion and integrity management consultant in the oil and gas industry. Her expertise focuses on developing internal and external corrosion risk assessment and corrosion control schemes for onshore and subsea pipelines with extensive experience in the delivery and project management of these items. Most recently she has been applying her corrosion knowledge to flow modelling and how pipeline flow effects corrosion characteristics. Marguerite has a first-class degree in Civil Engineering from University College Cork. She is also qualified as a NACE Senior Internal Corrosion Technologist (SICT).
Lewis Barton has over 5 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry. He is responsible for consulting on the corrosion diagnosis and management of pipelines and process facilities against internal and external corrosion, erosion and corrosion cracking. He specializes in Internal Corrosion Direct Assessment (ICDA) and corrosion modelling of multiphase liquid and wet/dry gas pipelines, both on and offshore, using industry recognized corrosion models in combination with dynamic and steady-state multiphase flow modelling. Lewis has a honors degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northumbria University.
