Smart and Integrated Surface, Subsea and Downhole Technology
Untapped oil and gas reserves are found in challenging conditions: deep waters, frigid environments, remote sites and small fields. Cost-efficient drilling and production for multi-billion dollar projects incorporate integrated processes, advanced control technologies and smart equipment, applied in reservoirs, wells, processing, transport and storage.
Engineering simulation can benefit all stakeholders in the supply chain, including parts and service providers. The methodology is ideal for building a framework for engineering collaboration.
ANSYS technology helps energy companies leverage the power of high-performance computing and advanced physics-based simulation to develop and evaluate new drilling concepts and equipment, such as remote operation and horizontal/deep water drilling. It meets industry requirements for integrated, advanced physics in fluid mechanics, structural mechanics, electronics and electromagnetics.
Incorporating sensors and advanced electronics into equipment requires a systems-based approach. Engineering simulation aids in optimizing power requirements (including electronics cooling) and durability, protecting devices from impact and vibration. This integrated approach reduces intervention and maintenance over the product/process life cycle.
