Announcing the release of PIPEPHASE 9.7

PIPEPHASE® 9.7 – is now available on the Electronic Software Distribution site

What is it?
PIPEPHASE® is simulation software that rigorously models steady-state, multiphase flow in oil & gas networks and pipeline systems. It has the power and flexibility to model applications ranging from the sensitivity analysis of key parameters in a single well, to multi-year facilities planning studies for an entire field.

Why is this important?

PIPEPHASE® can:
  1. Increase overall asset-wide production, well and flow line performance, and pipeline & facilities design 
  2. Integrate field development and planning 
  3. Reduce capital and operating costs 
  4. Increase engineering productivity 
  5. Help diagnose and resolve production problems 
PIPEPHASE can be used across numerous industries and applications, including petroleum exploration and production, natural gas transmission, utility networks, and complex downstream hydraulics.

What is new?
PIPEPHASE® version 9.7 represents numerous new features and improvements, including:
  • Enhancements to PVT data, assay handling, and phase envelope 
  • Upgrade to PRO/II 9.2 thermo with access to all PRO/II thermodynamic methods; ability to import data from PRO/II keyword files 
  • Improved ease of use, including updates to the right-click menu, pictures, UOM conversion, etc. 
  • Ability to cut/copy/paste or disable devices; improved segmentation 
  • New or improved input/calculation options, including nodal analysis, erosional velocity method , Cv specification for fittings, and an allowance of multiple pump curves 
  • Microsoft Excel report improvements
