Designing Modular Wellheads - Article - ANSYS Advantage - V12 I1

Using a modular wellhead can save up to $240,000 per oil or gas well by reducing installation time for downhole equipment. WEFIC engineers used ANSYS Mechanical to evaluate design alternatives for a wellhead component without the need to build and test prototypes. Simulation helped reduce development time by about 80 percent while producing a reliable component.
