Flow loops are utilized to study and understand multiphase flow corrosion (e.g. oil/water, oil/water/gas) phenomena and apply the knowledge to field pipeline systems. Another major application for flow loop analysis is flow assurance which aids in allowing the oil to be transported safely from upstream to downstream processes. Understanding of fluid phenomena, corrosions issues, and flow assurance difficulties are of the utmost importance for technically viable field development plans and optimal operations throughout the field.
DSAT has expertise in designing, engineering and installing small and large diameter flow loops for multi phase CO2/H2S corrosion, erosion, corrosion inhibitor testing and flow assurance flow loops.
