Pushing the Boundaries of Subsea Design with Oil and Gas Digital Twin

On-Demand Webinar | 37 minutes

Digital twins allow oil and gas companies to predict and perfect the performance of their subsea designs, throughout the lifetime of the asset.

An oil and gas digital twin for subsea design equipment

Successfully designing, installing, operating, and maintaining oil and gas production facilities on the floor of the ocean is one of the most difficult and challenges that engineering has to offer.

Using Digital Twin technology, oil and gas operators can build a living, breathing model of subsea equipment that will evolve along with the physical asset. This will allow operators to design subsea equipment that meets all of the challenges that it encounters in its operational lifetime.

Learn how to increase subsea gas production rate by 25% with a digital twin in oil and gas

Effective use of digital twin technology for subsea oil and gas design and operations can significantly increase production, by minimizing downtime, and by predicting the most efficient way to optimize control systems, in order to deal with changes in maturing assets. This webinar will explore how digital twins have helped oil and gas companies to significantly boost production.

Benefits of oil and gas simulation software:

For digital twins to fulfill their potential they must be predictive, not only monitoring the “as is” condition of a subsea asset but also predicting how that operation will be influenced by changing conditions. Oil and gas simulation software (such as computational fluid dynamics) provide the predictive capability for oil and gas operators to answer “what if” questions and optimize the performance of their assets under all possible operating conditions, including some that were never part of the design envelope.
