Virtuoso® is our field-proven suite of engineering software products for real-time, online simulation of oil & gas production operations and virtual well flow metering. It also supports offline functions for performing rigorous engineering simulations as well as integrated operator training applications. Our purpose-built software solutions provide a variety of operational and commercial functionalities based on the unique challenges of each installation.
Over the last 20 years, we have deployed 100+ Virtuoso® systems for offshore / onshore black oil and gas condensate operations worldwide and have been widely used for the following applications:
- virtual multiphase flow metering and allocation
- well integrity and performance surveillance
- well optimization and programmed well operating guideline control
- Operator Training System (OTS), including options for VP Link
- Engineering Simulator – to develop operating procedures, study control philosophy, plan future expansions, and training
- production process flow management and analytics, including rampup, shutdown, startup, operations forecasting and optimization
- asset and pipeline management, performance monitoring and control, including operating pressure and temperature envelope, slugging and liquid holdup, linepack, leak detection and location, flow restriction or blockage detection, scraper / pig tracking and forecasting
- flow assurance advisory, including wax formation, hydrate propensity, corrosion hot spot monitoring, chemical inhibitor dosage and concentration tracking
- production meter balancing and reconciliation
- upstream / topside process control and optimization, including separator, pump and compressor
- gas processing plant blending and optimization
- field instrument analytics and failure detection
