EDMS Solution:

  • Installed Livelink Enterprise Server, which integrates content and collaboration and is easily accessible.
  • Client’s drawing documents and markup were also integrated within Livelink.

Benefits & ROI:

  • The Transmittal Management System workflow cuts the lengthy review process from seven days down to three days.
  • Elimination on the usage of hardcopy drawings, wrong reference to drawings can be avoided, since users are notified on all amendments.




FloWax is a powerful multiphase pipeline simulator with wax deposition modelling capabilities for flow assurance and production applications. Through the unique blend of Multiflash’ advanced wax thermodynamics and a robust implementation of multiphase flows model in pipeline.

FloWax allows Flow Assurance and Production engineers to predict the evolution profiles of :

  • The thickness and the physical properties of wax sediments along the pipeline
  • Pressure and temperature of the bulk fluid
  • The physical properties (density, speed, molecular weight, viscosity, holdup ) of the gas, hydrocarbon liquid and aqueous phase

Based on the predicted wax thickness profiles and the criteria required for wax management in production pipelines, the pigging frequency can easily be evaluated.

The built-in pipeline design tool allows including in the model, the pipelines’ geometry, building material, presence of thermal insulation as well the environment in which the pipeline is set. Temperature and Pressure profile from third parties simulators such as Olga can also be imported and matched.

FloWax embeds Multiflash thermodynamic modelling and petroleum fluid characterisation capabilities, however, model files generated with Multiflash standalone can also be used to model the fluid and solve flash calculations.

The multiphase flow model takes into account for different flow regimes as well as the heat transfer between the pipeline and the environment and models the deposition of wax along the pipeline walls, based on mass transfer method. The shear removal model developed with large flow-loop experimental data can also be included for highly turbulent regimes.

In FloWax the effect of entrained solid waxes on oil rheology is also taken into account to provide reliable predictions on oil viscosity. The model can handle the coexistence of wax sediment, hydrocarbon liquid, aqueous phase and gas. However, the number of phases actually present along the pipeline is determined by the full solution of the phase equilibrium calculation with the built-in Multiflash engine.




Multiflash is a powerful and versatile PVT and EOS modelling software package dedicated to :

  • PVT modelling of reservoir fluids phase behaviour
  • Flow assurance and production
  • Evaluation of fluids’ physical properties for design and process simulation

Multiflash provides a complete and reliable solution for the evaluation of the phase behaviour of complex fluids across the whole equipment and plant design process and during operations, and enables engineers with quantitative information and data to rapidly assess options, make choices and prevent or forecast potential problems.

Either as a standalone, self-contained solution, or as the embedded PVT engine in leading process, flow assurance and production simulation software, Multiflash is accessible through multiple sockets. Through its wide connectivity, Multiflash provides engineers with countless possibilities to customise and optimise their workflows, relying on a consistent, coherent and highly accurate fluid’s description including complex petroleum fluids, natural gas and condensates, Hydrates, Wax, Asphaltene, Mercury, Scales, acid gases, alcohols and glycols, polymer blends, chemicals, petrochemicals, refrigerants etc.

Through a wide range of thoroughly tested thermodynamics models, a database of more than 250 pure substances and a unique connectivity, Multiflash is the standard choice for Production Chemists and Flow Assurance, Production and Process Engineers, throughout the entire oil and gas value chain, from the reservoir to the refinery.
