Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies AS (KOGT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kongsberg Gruppen ASA (KONGSBERG), has announced the release of LedaFlow 1.4, the new transient multiphase simulator for wells and pipelines.

Continuing KOGT’s commitment to providing greater detail and accuracy in multiphase simulation in the Oil and Gas industry, the latest release of LedaFlow contains significant additions and improvements that enable flow assurance engineers to operate faster and more efficiently.

With LedaFlow 1.4, speed increases of up to four times can be seen in network cases using multi-CPU capabilities, shaping the LedaFlow solution into a more productive tool for all engineering challenges.

LedaFlow has been enhanced with a number of new features designed to improve operating procedures. Release 1.4 includes the ability to plot hydrate margins which helps to mitigate potential loss of production. Additional features include user-defined closure laws defining the relationships for friction and entrainment and the ability for trend loggers to efficiently record high data frequency at selected locations.

To optimize production, LedaFlow 1.4 integrates Multiflash , a state of the art multiphase equilibrium calculation package, which forms part of the Petro-SIMTM process simulator suite. It can be used as an alternative to the in-built Grand Unified Thermodynamic Simulator (GUTS) for composition tracking, point flashes and PVT table creation. Any Licensee of Multiflash can access it from within the LedaFlow software to complete Composition Tracking simulation with no additional license or configuration required.

All new and existing LedaFlow functionality is available as part of the standard license agreement.

“As flow-line risks in challenging production regimes continue to increase, KOGT remains convinced that providing a tool allowing flow assurance engineers to gather as much accurate information as quickly as possible creates substantial added value and helps mitigate risk,” commented Alick Jamieson, LedaFlow Product Manager, KOGT.
