AFS Managing Partner Tony Spratt will be giving an SPE webinar Thursday, 15 April 2021 on the topic of “Hydrate inhibition of storage / hydraulic fluids and umbilical flushing characteristics”. Assumptions have been made about the hydrate inhibition characteristics of hydraulic / storage fluids in umbilicals due to the inclusion of MEG, but AFS has tested a dozen fluids to better assess their hydrate inhibition characteristics and develop the curves. The curves will be provided within this presentation and shared with the community. In addition, a short discussion on the displacement of umbilical fluids with production chemicals and the laboratory testing performed versus the calculated results utilizing laminar flow.
