About the course

Flow assurance (FA) is critical for effective design and operation of oil and gas pipeline systems. The aim is to assure the flow of hydrocarbon fluids economically from the reservoir to processing facilities. Professional application of this discipline enables the maximum operability, reliability and viability an oil and gas asset.

Managing these challenges is becoming more complex because of development of fields under harsher conditions, such as high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) reservoirs, deepwater fields and heavy oil.

By completing this course, learners will be able to assess flow assurance issues that may affect a pipeline during its design and operation. Learners will be able to do this by performing a reliable analysis and providing solutions to assure uninterrupted oil and gas production. Learners will work though professional exercises and discuss case studies to apply their knowledge.
