It has been predicted that future offshore activity for the petroleum industry will emphasize subsea completion with full wellstream flow in much longer flowlines. Thus, an improved understanding of multiphase flow in wells, flowlines, and risers is of vital importance. This course gives you that understanding!
Fundamentals of two-phase flow in piping systems encountered in the production and transportation of oil and gas is the course’s focus.
The completed and current research projects conducted at the Tulsa University Fluid Flow Project (TUFFP) permits teaching the latest techniques for designing multiphase flow systems.
What is TUFFP? The Tulsa University Fluid Flow Projects (TUFFP) is a cooperative industry-university research group supported by more
than 18 oil and gas production, service companies and government agencies from 10 countries. The group was formed January 1, 1973, to conduct applied research on fluid flow problems encountered by the member firms. Research is supported by $1,000,000 annual membership fees. Most of the current research projects involve experimental studies of multiphase flow in pipes. 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.
“An excellent short course on problem solving techniques to resolve your multiphase flow issues and understand the limits of the solutions.” (Sr. Process Engineer, Chevron)
“I gained many useful tools and insights about multiphase flow from this course that will be beneficial to me in my job.” (Sr. Project Engineer, Baker Hughes, Inc.)
“This course shows the pros and cons of many different models used in two-phase flow calculations.” (Engineer I, EOG Resources)
