Flow assurance

This paper describes the key flow-assurance challenges for a deepwater gasfield development in the South China Sea and the considerations and steps taken to achieve an overall flow-assurance-management strategy.
Innovative elements of digitalization and automation of workflows provide a new approach for better handling of slugging in subsea developments with long tiebacks, potentially optimizing production and limiting the amount of flaring.
The complete paper presents a set of two- and three-phase slug-flow experiments conducted in a 766-m-long, 8-in. pipe at 45-bara pressure.
