The Subsea Production System Simulator is an online digital representation of the production system and comprises a real-time and an offline planning mode. KONGSBERG has provided an Operator Training Simulator to ExxonMobil for this field which will be cloned for this system to be used in real-time and planning mode. The real-time provides a “window” into the wells and flow lines providing information on the hydrocarbons, water and chemicals not available from instrumentation. The offline mode is used for planning purposes. The Subsea Production System Simulator will be built using Kongsberg Digital’s K-Spice Dynamic Process Simulation Platform and the LedaFlow Advanced Transient Multiphase Flow Simulator.
Rajesh Baskaran, Vice President – Production Assurance, Kongsberg Digital adds “Kongsberg Digital supplied Operator Training Simulators for Liza Phase 1 Subsea and Topsides facilities and is delighted to have been awarded this important contract to support the development and operation of this development in Guyana.”
