Flow Assurance Training

Practical information to solve production and design challenges.

We enjoy explaining concepts and how to apply them to solve real world problems. 
This leads to individuals understanding the fundamentals of the concepts, how to apply them and having the curiosity to learn more.

An introduction to flow assurance

An online course with one and  a half hours of lessons and quizzes to help you retain information.
Understand the value the flow assurance discipline can add during design and operations and have productive discussions with flow assurance engineers about your project or field requirements. 

The course is one an half hour long with eight lectures and seven quizzes. You will receive a certificate of completion when you finish all the material
  • PVT analysis
  • Flow in pipelines
  • Hydrates, wax, asphaltenes and scales

An introduction to Carbon Capture and Storage

The subject is framed by discussing what is carbon capture and storage, why do we have to deploy it, the technologies currently available to capture carbon and the requirements that the geological reservoir needs to have to ensure the carbon will stay in place. This is followed by a description of design consideration during transportation of CO2. 

The course is over one an half hour long with eight lectures and seven quizzes. You will receive a certificate of completion when you finish all the material
  • Stream composition
  • Pipeline capacity
  • Hydrates and materials 
  • Transient operations

Flow assurance via Zoom or in-house

Complete overview of the flow assurance discipline with detailed information about the topics. Targeted to engineers that have to perform flow assurance tasks during their day to day work. 
The course is run live over five mornings.
  • PVT analysis
  • Flow 
  • Hydrates
  • Wax
  • Asphaltenes
  • Scale 
  • Emulsions
  • Foam
  • Naphtenates
  • Compatibility 
  • Sampling

Gladys Sucre

Gladys started her career as an engineer with PDVSA (Venezuela), and then did a Masters in Petroleum Engineering while working for the paraffin deposition projects at The University of Tulsa. She worked for a year as FA engineer for Advantica (UK); for five years as a wax and asphaltene engineer for Shell (Netherlands); one year as a FA consultant with The Xodus group (Netherlands); and two years as a senior FA engineer with Eni - Tecnomare (Italy). She now runs Flow ahead.
Her experience working for producers and consultants, performing simulations studies, working with laboratories, and helping develop operational procedures for producing fields, gives her a complete understanding on flow assurance and on how decisions made during design affect operations. She is passionate about connecting all the pieces to arrive to an honest understanding of risks and how best to manage them.
