What role you will play in our team

 

  • The Flow Assurance Engineer is responsible for the design of oil and gas production systems and assessment of their operability, including wells, flow lines and risers, production and injection facilities, and pipelines.  

  • The Flow Assurance Engineer will use analytical and computational tools to predict the transient multiphase flow and thermal behavior of the production system and develops and documents functional requirements and operational strategies to prevent, mitigate, and remediate vulnerabilities associated with gas hydrate formation, wax deposition, and other solids

What you will do

 

 

During the project cycle, Flow Assurance Engineers conduct technical studies to assess system operability, including

 

  • Fluid characterization using a thermodynamic simulator to model the PVT behavior of produced fluids

  • Steady-state, single-phase flow modeling to size gas and/or water injection systems and pipelines

  • Steady-state, multiphase fluid modeling to design production systems, including functional requirements for artificial lift and/or thermal insulation

  • Transient, multiphase fluid modeling to assess thermal and hydraulic transients during production rate changes, turndown, startup, shutdown, and blow-down; including flow line and riser slugging, cool-down, and warm-up.

  • Use of modeling and/or laboratory analysis to predict and assess solid formation, deposition, bedding and/or blockage behavior for hydrates, sand, wax, scale, asphaltenes, and other solids.

  • Assessment of erosion and/or corrosion to guide proper material selection, conducted in collaboration with Materials Engineers.
