Oil and Gas
The oil and gas industry is one of the most important industries in the world. The costs incurred by the industry in the exploration and extraction processes are considerable and significant. Costs can be greatly reduced by applying numerical simulation in this industry. Using linear and nonlinear solutions and explicit and implicit methods, Multiphysics analysis including temperature, temperature-stress, etc., as well as analysis of various loads such as wave, buoyancy, flow, and wind force in simulation processes in the oil and gas industry are very important.
There are many applications in the oil and gas industry, including rubber, plastic, metals, minerals, composites, etc. The simulation and analysis of these materials require a great deal of expertise.
Ground floor Analysis
Analyzing the bedrock can improve the estimation of hydrocarbon production and prevent potential breakdowns due to corrosion. Corrosion-displacement couplings, properties of soil elements, damage and fracture prediction, and more can be studied here.
Hydraulic fracture tests can accurately assess hydraulic fracture rates and use appropriate technologies to counteract them. Fracture surface modeling, tangential and vertical currents, corrosion-displacement coupling are among the analyzes that can be used in this area.
Analysis of coatings used
Appropriate coating of tanks affected by different dynamic and thermal forces requires thermal analysis and analysis, the definition of metal and mineral material models, and solution of corrosion-displacement coupling as examples. Reducing the failure of coatings, especially in periodic steam injection operations (CSS), steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD), and other thermal extraction methods, are the advantages of coating analysis.
Sand production and control in tanks
One of the things that are very important in the oil industry is the production of sand during the extraction. Problems with sand production can include:
- erosion of equipment such as pipes, pumps, valves, etc.
- blocking of surface and inside equipment such as pipes
- needing more manpower to replace and repair equipment and Well-cleaning
- Reduction of formation permeability followed by a reduction in reservoir recycling efficiency.
By analyzing and estimating sand erosion and production, we can determine the techniques of sand control with greater confidence. Also, designing and analyzing sand control methods can significantly save money on designing new and advanced ESSs.
This simulation can prevent possible torsion of the tubes or predict the location of torsion. This process requires real modeling of good geometry and pipe coupling, which requires the use of nonlinear solutions, such as friction and contact.
Different offshore structures are subject to different loads, such as wind and wave loads. Explicit and implicit solutions are used to simulate these structures to achieve results such as improved strength, stability, and safety under different loading conditions, including sudden loads.
Composite pipe analysis
Composite pipes are very popular in the oil industry. It is very important to study the failure modes and failure progress of the composite lines under different loads. By simulating these pipes, a composite pipe can be obtained to withstand higher external hydrostatic pressures, higher internal pressures due to well pressures, and higher temperatures due to greater depth.
Designing suitable solutions for cooling emblems and developing insulation to maintain pipeline flow under operating conditions and sudden failures are the benefits of thermal simulation in the oil and gas industry. One of the analyzes that can be done in this regard is FSI analysis in structures, radiation heat transfer analysis, and contact analysis.
Threaded connections analysis
The breakdown mechanism of threaded joints can lead to the production of joints to withstand further pressures in the oil and gas industry.
Sealing with rubber equipment
Simulation and analysis of rubber shaft seals using dynamic and static solutions and nonlinear analysis can lead to improved performance of this equipment and better sealing. Engineers of Banumusag Company are ready to cooperate with the oil and gas industry to perform a variety of analyzes.
