Learn and Apply Leading University of Tulsa Fluid Flow Project Research
This short course is your opportunity to learn from leading University of Tulsa researchers and experts. The completed and current research projects covering the latest techniques for designing multiphase flow systems conducted at the Tulsa University Fluid Flow Project (TUFFP) will be explored in this course.
TU-CESE showcases the TUFFP Research through this annual one-week professional development short course; bringing awareness of this research to industry which drives sustainable, environmental and applied practices and knowledge.
Multiphase flow of oil-gas-water is inevitable and presents unique challenges in operation for any production and transportation system, including horizontal wells drilled into unconventional plays. Off-shore activity for the petroleum industry emphasizes subsea completions with full wellstream flow in much longer flowlines than in other areas.
Therefore, an improved understanding of multiphase flow in wells, flowlines, and risers is of vital importance to engineers and industry professionals.
Fundamentals of two-phase flow in piping systems encountered in the production and transportation of oil and gas is the course’s focus.
What is TUFFP? The Tulsa University Fluid Flow Projects (TUFFP) is a cooperative industry-university research group currently pursuing several projects simultaneously studying the effects of size and pressure upscaling and liquid viscosity on multiphase flow behavior utilizing state of the art facilities and instrumentation. Short courses on the design of two-phase flow in piping systems for oil and gas production and transportation are among the services offered by TUFFP to member and nonmember firms. The information/research outcomes will be shared with those attending the 2019 course. Summaries of the current TUFFP projects are provided at www.tuffp.utulsa.edu.
