Realize safe, reliable and efficient subsea equipment design and operation with simulation-led subsea engineering

The design and operation of subsea production systems present some of the most complex engineering challenges faced in the energy industry. Simulation and predictive analytics are critical components to address these challenges.

Multiphysics system simulation approaches enable engineers to rapidly build, assess and configure equipment and production and control systems. High-fidelity simulation approaches bring greater detail, both to guide design decisions and to inform operations and flow assurance challenges, by capturing complex multiphase flows, thermal phenomena, and structural behaviors.

This paper provides examples of how engineers use the digital twin to enable the safe, reliable and efficient design and operation of subsea systems.
