What is OLX®
OLX® enables seamless linking between the multiphase simulation software OLGA (v7.2 and onwards) from SIS (former SPT Group), and the industry standard process simulation software Petro-SIM® from KBC Advanced Technologies and HYSYS (v7.3 and onwards) from AspenTech.
Transfer of data to and from the applications is via an OPC server, developed by SIS. OLX® is therefore acting as an OPC Client Application.
Only a linked OLGA® – HYSYS®/Petro-SIM® model provides a true image of the interactions between multiphase pipeline and topside oil and gas receiving facilities. OLX® therefore improves process design and understanding to deliver more accurate results.
OLX® allows production networks to be assessed dynamically with the results used for:
- Production Optimisation
- Slug Prevention
- Safety Studies
BPT OLX® allows connectivity to multiple OLGA servers
OLX® facilitates field-wide transient optimization modelling in combination with processing facilities modelling. OLX® allows visualisation of wells, pipeline and topside operation in common trends.
