Aker Solutions has been instrumental in the utilisation of dynamic process simulation, and has proven capabilities and competence. Aker Solutions provides cost effective means of deploying dynamic simulation technology to solve the challenges that arise at all stages in a project lifecycle by drawing upon its established expertise in the upstream oil and gas sector.
Dynamic process simulation is an important tool in all phases of field developments. In early studies, important transients can be studied, and difficult control structures can be evaluated. In detailed engineering, dynamic process simulation can be used to support design choices and to validate the design.
In pre-commissioning and commissioning, dynamic simulations can be used to feed simulated measurements to the DSC (control system) and thereby minimise the time and cost related to testing and validation of these systems.
For installations in operation, dynamic process simulations can be used for training and operational support, as well as for de-bottlenecking and test bench for possible modifications.
Dynamic process models can be integrated with the dynamic multiphase pipeline models to provide a coherent understanding between subsea and the topsides interactions.
