Tridiagonal Solutions launches PERMiT – a unique tool designed to assess the erosion risk of Oil and Gas Pipelines.
It helps with design and operation of oil and gas pipelines within acceptable erosion limits. PERMiT assists in predicting and evaluating the erosion rates for various pipeline components that are prone to erosion using industry accepted erosion models, field data and lab data. The intuitive and streamlined interface makes it easy for design engineers and field operators to analyze various scenarios in a very short time frame while promoting enterprise collaboration and sharing of knowledge.
PERMiT predicts erosion rates using six different Industry Accepted Erosion Correlations. It is a Windows based desktop tool that can be deployed across an enterprise.
PERMiT offers three modules.
Calculate Erosion Rates: PERMiT allows the user to calculate erosion rates for the selected empirical erosion models. Various operating conditions and field scenarios can be evaluated to predict the erosion rates. In addition, the user has an option of calculating results according to the inbuilt standard piping schedules and sizes.
Plot Operating Envelopes and Graphs: PERMiT allows the user to specify erosion limits and generate operating envelope curves to stay within those limits. Sensitivity plots to understand how various parameters impact erosion for a given production scenario can be generated using different erosion models. These can be superimposed for easy comparison.
Compare Model Predictions with Lab and/or Field Data: PERMiT has an inbuilt compilation of published lab and field data. An organization’s proprietary lab data and field data can also be included in this database. This database feature allows for a very easy comparison of model predictions with experimental data. It allows the operators to drive decisions using both data and models in a seamless manner. The users can export the data and analyze it further in Excel.
We invite you to try PERMiT and mitigate Erosion risk with certainty.
