Production configuration : the deep U


For the off shore production, lot of problems exist. The main problem is how to transport the hydrocarbon mixtures from deposit. In this report, we have test a complex configuration. That is to say this report deals with the problem of the transport of a real mixture ( with 4 components ) in pipe. The temperature of the fluid is not fixed by the user of the code. It is the ambiant temperature wich imposed the fuid temperature.

This is so complex that the simulation have just been make for the steady state. The picture below represent the studied configuration.

For this configuration there is a precise charge notebook. The harder criterium to respect is the deposit rating. In fact the pressure of the reservoir is directly link to the flow of the mixture.
In this case the reservoir pressure is 236 bar and the flow is 15 000 baril per day ( 20 kg.s)
