Software for Subsea Flowline-Riser Cleanout Operations
Cleanouts are primarily performed to remove blockages in subsea flowlines.These
blockages can be in the form of hydrates, wax, or paraffin. The operation is
similar to wellbore cleanouts and is performed with a coiled tubing (CT) unit
and a "wash" fluid. TubeFlow FA provides the capability to model such
Flowline-Riser cleanouts through a steady-state and transient analysis.
A Flowline-Riser cleanout analysis in TubeFlow FA provides the following
