Torque and Drag 
Torque and Drag Software for Subsea Flowline Interventions

Torque and Drag modeling is useful to estimate the friction forces on the intervening tubing when planning a flowline-riser intervention or performing a post-job analysis. In TubeFlow FA, torque and drag analysis can be performed by configuring coiled tubing or wireline as the intervening tubing.

In general, TubeFlow FA provides the following functionality in the torque and drag model:

In addition, the torque and drag analysis is supported by utilities to accurately estimate fluid properties and burst/collapse limits during flowline-riser intervention operations.
