PDC provides process engineering expertise throughout the project life cycle and when required integrates the discipline with its subsurface engineers. The process discipline experience ranges from developing field development plans for new oil and gas prospects through to providing input to Pre-FEED projects and providing technical authority approval for operational roles within oil companies.

Field development involved taking key decisions at the earliest stages of a study to identify facilities options based on reservoir requirements, environmental conditions, export routes and product specifications. Once concepts have been identified, they are further developed to allow an early assessment of risks to the project and provide high level cost estimates.
Factors typically considered include:

Our process engineers can work on dynamic simulation and flow assurance models, Dynamic simulation modelling of control systems to improve operability and possibly design improvements.

Our flow assurance process engineers are involved at the earliest stages of a study to determine the flow characteristics of well fluids and the potential risks from flowing multi-phase fluids through pipelines.
