SANDVIKA, Norway – Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies has made the commercial release of the first phase of LedaFlow, its multi-phase flow assurance simulator. Kongsberg says LedaFlow is a product of collaboration amount Total, ConocoPhillips, SINTEF, and KOGT.

“LedaFlow uses detailed three-dimensional physical modeling and is designed to exploit the power of high-performance computing to support decisions that may improve safety and production in real time. It offers application possibilities that cover all engineering aspects including design, commissioning, operation, and training,” explains Alick Jamieson, product manager.

Using improved measurement technology, new, large scale experimental data has been implemented with new field measurements to improve the basis on which LedaFlow’s multi-phase models are developed, says KOGT. LedaFlow increases the resolution of modeling: solving mass, energy, and moment conservation for each of the three common fluid phases. This improves accuracy in critical transient events.
