Although hydraulic modeling is ubiquitous, there are “non-traditional” gases gaining in prominence which have properties that many of the most common hydraulic modeling equations and modeling methods do not sufficiently consider. This lecture will highlight several of the common modeling assumptions currently in practice and will suggest alternatives that address them for the creation of more accurate results.
At the end of this lecture, the hydraulic modeler will be alerted to several common modeling equations and assumptions that work well for natural gas systems but are no longer valid for certain types of alternative gases. Each of these equations and assumptions will be explained and alternatives or substitutes will be provided. The lecturer understands there are several hydraulic modeling software programs available and will endeavor to remain program-neutral so that all hydraulic modelers, regardless of their preferred modeling program, will come away with useful, actionable information.
Attendees will receive 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH) upon completion.
Who Should Attend
This course targets the hydraulic modeler who is tasked with modeling “green gases” for which they may not yet be familiar. The course assumes the attendee will already be at least somewhat experienced with hydraulic modeling.
