CD-adapco Event to Address How Simulation is Refocusing O&G Engineering Design

Share Article

This seminar will show how Multidisciplinary Design eXploration (MDX) can lower development time and costs while improving performance

This event is geared toward oil and gas industry professionals who develop products in support of subsea, subsurface, process & separation and marine & offshore operations and want to reduce development time and costs while improving performance.

CD-adapco, the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, is hosting a complimentary workshop on December 7, 2015 in Houston, Texas, titled, “MDX: Reducing Product Development Costs through Simulation.” This event is geared toward oil and gas industry professionals who develop products in support of subsea, subsurface, process & separation and marine & offshore operations and want to reduce development time and costs while improving performance.

The event will feature presentations from ABS, Wild Well Controls Advanced Engineering, and the CD-adapco team.

As the oil and gas industry faces the challenges presented by the current market downturn, cost reduction and efficiency improvements are a competitive necessity. Traditional design processes that rely on physical testing have high costs and limit the number of design variants that can be evaluated. By automating robust, validated CFD simulations, design teams can increase the number of design points evaluated while reducing the time spent on analysis.

Through the use of MDX, CD-adapco customer FMC Technologies reduced time spent on simulation by 40 percent while significantly increasing the number of designs evaluated.

“Technology leading companies in Oil & Gas are using the current market conditions to refocus their engineering design processes, putting simulation at its core. Their goal is to reduce engineering design costs and time, without compromising safety,” said Alex Read, CD-adapco’s Director for Oil & Gas. “During the great recession of 2008, CD-adapco worked closely with the automotive industry to replace physical with virtual tests, resulting in significant reductions in their engineering costs and times, and an 18 percent increase in the adoption of our technology.”

The event will have three distinct goals for attendees:

  • To provide an overview of the technology available and its relevance to the oil & gas industry
  • To share best practices for how these methods can be successfully implemented into design processes (customers will present on how they have leveraged the technology)
  • To experience the technology during an exclusive hands-on session
