It is a comprehensive, first principles-based analysis tool with an unparalleled chemistry property database and three thermodynamic models that deliver accurate, rigorous multi-component calculations for the broadest range of phenomena and operating conditions.


Key Capabilities

  • Full phase equilibrium calculations – vapor, brine, oil & multiple solid phases
  • Quantitative acid gas & volatile fatty acid partitioning across the vapor-brine-oil phases.
  • Simulate phase mixing and separation during operations
  • Create a representative reservoir fluid composition so that fluid properties can be predicted as it flows up the well. This includes equilibrating the fluids with reservoir minerals.
  • Compute phase partitioning, mass balance, scale tendencies, and scale mass across the production temperature and pressure
  • Process-oriented, allowing step-by-step visualization of the application
  • Database that includes standard scales and several hundred non-standard scales


Sample Applications

  • Predict evaporative salt scaling
  • Predict of reservoir saturation in carbonate reservoirs (limestone, dolomite, siderite)
  • Simulate gas-lift injection and multi-zone production
  • Test fluid compatibility when mixing downhole or at surface
  • Simulate injection water reaction with reservoir minerals and connate water

OLI Studio: Corrosion Analyzer predicts general and localized corrosion resulting from chemical reactions between the corrosive liquid and the metal surface. The tool also predicts depletion profiles at grain boundaries caused by heat treating. Lastly, the Corrosion Analyzer tool computes real-solution Pourbaix diagrams across a wide range of conditions (T/P) and compositions, and stability of metals in harsh industrial applications.

Corrosion Analyzer uses a first principles thermodynamic model to compute the composition of the near-surface liquid and a multi-functional rate expression to compute corrosion rates. Both the thermodynamic model and the corrosion rate expression are validated using peer-reviewed experimental data. This ensures that the software delivers accurate predictions across a broad range of operating conditions.


Key Capabilities
