Flow Assurance Testing

In 1998, in response to the new challenges demanded by deepwater oil and gas production, SwRI invested in new facilities and custom experimental techniques to help the industry investigate some of the most challenging flow assurance issues. Since then, SwRI has conducted projects in the following areas:

  • Hydrate Formation, Deposition, and Dissociation
  • Gas Hydrate Slurry Transport
  • Wax Deposition
  • Gelled Crude Oil
  • Shut-in and Restart Scenarios
  • Inhibitor Diffusion and Effectiveness
  • Steady State and Transient Flow Assurance Modeling and Analysis
