HyFAST 2.1 Beta

As part of an international collaborative effort, The University of Western Australia, in conjunction with the Colorado School of Mines are engaged in an on-going effort to produce software tools capable of identifying when, where, and importantly, how severe hydrate formation will be in multi-phase oil & gas systems. This has led to the development of the Hydrate Flow Assurance Simulation Tool (HyFAST), which aims to simulate hydrate forming systems; from bench-top autoclave apparatus, to flowloops and industrial flowline systems. Making use of the most advanced hydrate models available, HyFAST offers a way of gauging the severity of formation both at steady state operation and during a number of transient operations, including cold restarts and inhibitor injection failures.
