SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section
Welcome to the SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section!
We are serving the global energy community to share knowledge relevant to flow assurance, production chemistry and related topics.
This includes making sure the flow is stable and efficient from reservoir to the process equipment, pipes are of adequate size, flow velocities are not too high and not too low, system pressures are not exceeding safe limits. Also that most effective and safe chemicals are used to improve existing energy production and to prevent blockages (asphaltenes, bacteria, diamondoids, hydrates, ice, paraffin wax, sand, scale) and other flow instabilities in reservoir, wells and flowlines, as well as optimize scraping /pigging of pipelines.
To make the most of your membership, please feel free to log in to see the section library, past discussions, ask a new question on the discussion board, participate in the monthly meetings and SPE Live webinars to hear about the recent technology developments and implementation.
