Custom training on Flow Assurance, CFD or Project Management is developed according the necessities of interest of each client.  Typical practice consists of sections on fundamentals and on solving problems of concern.

As part of contractual scope of work Unlimited Flow Solutions (UFS) prepares a document to provide training to the client on the area of interest such as flow assurance, computational fluid dynamics, or management. The course is then structured in several modules to accommodate each client needs.

Example 1, if the client was to request training in flow assurance, Module I could address basic steady state flow assurance practices and design of basic simulation models, and Module II could address complex transient analysis and simulations, etc. Each Module could be divided in several topics as below:

The basic steady state session in Module I could cover but not limited to: 

  • Basic flow assurance terminology
  • Creation of a flow assurance basis of design
  • Steps for fluid characterization (EoS and PVT modeling)
  • Steady state model building
  • Insulation vs. no insulation
  • Pressure drop simulations
  • Temperature drop simulations
  • Erosional velocity limitations
  • Liquid hold up calculations

The transient analysis Module II could cover but not limited to: 

  • Transient simulations for single phase
  • Transient simulations for multiphase
  • Hydrate prevention or remediation
  • Start-up simulations
  • Shutdown simulations
  • Cooldown simulations
  • Restart simulations
  • Pigging simulations
  • Liquid inventory management

Example 2, if the client was to request training in project management practices then the Module session could cover: 

  • Project Phases
  • Project Phases – Execution
  • Project Work Breakdown Structure
  • Quality in Project Management Processes

The content of this course could focus on the activities performed during the execution of a project. The introduction will point out the development planning and the design basis as key inputs for the successful execution of the project. The typical project work breakdown structure (WBS) is a key deliverable to understanding the scope of work and conducting a detailed project execution plan.

Some of the key points of this course could be but not limited to:

  • Strategic alignment with corporate vision
  • Proper early conception of the project
  • Comprehensive screening of development alternatives
  • Financial evaluation techniques
  • Comprehensive scope definition
  • Appropriate contracting strategy
  • Good definition of the design basis
  • Multi-disciplinary interface management
  • Risk management
  • World class project management practices
