Solid particle erosion is one of the principal modes of pipeline failures. A reliable prediction of erosion rates is imperative in the design and operation of oil and gas production facilities over the life of field. Failure to address the erosion risks will result in severe financial and environmental consequences in the form of production loss, equipment damage, release of hydrocarbons, etc. leading to substantial increase in OPEX. Current market condition demands optimal design and operation.
Current Approaches to estimate and manage Erosion includes:
- –Lab and Field Scale Erosion Tests
- –CFD Models
- –Empirical Models
- –Data driven models
Empirical models are the most traditional route to estimating erosion. There are several models available. It is important to understand their limitations when utilizing them. Models tend to vary by an order of magnitude amongst themselves in their estimates of operational envelopes.
CFD modeling of Erosion has gained significant traction over the last decade. The predictive capabilities match quiet closely with experiments in single phase systems. They also provide details on erosion hot spots. This is extremely critical when complex geometries need to be monitored.
Data driven models in the last few years have gained significant interest in the industry. While the tools available for statistical analysis of large volumes of data have significantly advanced, key challenges stem from quality of data and understanding of underlying science that governs a process. Data collection, cleansing, methods to deal with missing data are some of the key questions that need addressed.
