Brea, CA - SimSci-Esscor , an operating unit of Invensys Production Management, announced Nov. 25th the introduction of Pipephase version 8.0 fluid flow simulator software. Used by many exploration and production companies, Pipephase software helps companies optimize multiphase flow in oil and gas production, transmission and distribution networks through simulation.

Functional enhancements included in Pipephase version 8.0 include a pipeline device that allows users to copy/paste pipeline profiles from spreadsheets and automatically generate results in a Microsoft Access database format. Version 8.0 also enables generating Verical Flow Performance (VFP) tables, or import VEP tables third-party applications.

A new, COM-compliant API layer enables other COM-compliant applications, such as Excel, to control Pipephase execution externally. Other Pipephase version 8.0 ''openness'' features include use of standard spreadsheet formats for data entry tables that support copy/paste features and tab navigation. Version 8.0 also offers an expanded list of decision variables for Netopt field optimization calculations.

New Pipephase users will find the initialization ''wizard'' to be helpful in successful problem setup. Other technical enhancements include the Gilbert family of critical-flow choke models, full tracking of Wobbe Index and GHV values for all multiphase fluid types, the ability to enter multiple DP/DT curves for fixed inlet or outlet pressures, and a new algorithm for solving high-GOR problems.
