K- Spice® Match – Online Simulation System – Connect your process model to real plant data to compare and replicate plant behavior – Mr Roar Nilsen – Product & Technology Manager – BU Simulation – Kongsberg

K- Spice® Match enables the possibility to initialise a process model with process data from the real plant. This is a major improvement compared to traditional methods, where a process model must be run manually to match a specific condition. With K- Spice® Match, the model is connected to the real plant, and follows the status of reality at all times. This makes it possible to create an initial condition for your model at any time, and you can start your study or training session with fresh conditions. The fact that the process model is following the real plant operation also provides confidence to the process model.

09.00 – 09.10
“Opening theme” – Rob Veersma – Gazprom International Training

To build world class talent capability in the Oil and Gas Industry, it is not sufficient to educate or to train the talents. An integrated approach is needed, from Assessment (performance reviews), to Learning (development objectives), to Experience (growing talent in-role development), to Mentoring and Coaching (helping to develop and to perform), to Leadership (to create the conditions, support and system).

  • The war for talent. No more war metaphors. The world is full of talent
  • Development is for top talent
  • Performance and development don’t mix
  • Development belongs to HR, not managers
  • Development requires major investments in training
  • Talent strategy can be informally addressed until a company has reached a significant size

Simulation and transfer of learning – Ronny Sannerud – Professor/PhD – Oslo and Akershus University College (HiOA)

Simulator training is essential for safe operation of for example oil installations and can be quite costly. The question is how to utilize learning potential inherent in this type of learning activity.

Therefore, it might be interesting to discuss various forms of transfer that can contribute both to concrete knowledge about how to handle an emergency situation, but also how to utilize simulator training to develop a more generic knowledge that can be transferred not only exactly the same situations, but more in principle similar situations. We are still in the phase where we analyze empirical data, which we expect to be more able to document and discuss various aspects of transfer.

15.00 – 15.30
GANESO® (GAs NEtwork Simulation and Optimization): A complete solution to design, planning and optimization of the operation of gas natural transport networks – Jesús Losada Maseda – Project Manager – Reganosa Company – Julio González Díaz – Department of Statistics and Operations Research – University of Santiago de Compostela and Technological Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITMATI)

GANESO® is a decision support tool for designing and planning new gas transport networks including all possible equipment (pipelines, underground storage, regasification terminals, compression stations, valves, etc.), allocating entry-exit tariffs according to the different methodologies proposed by ACER (Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators) and ENTSO-G (European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas). In the case of gas networks in operation, it allows to evaluate the merging of the gas flows with different quality across network system and check de gas composition at each node of the pipeline, as well as optimizing the network operation through the efficient routing of the gas, in order to minimize different cost functions of interest, such as the costs at the compression stations (taking into account their operational ranges). Moreover, it has additional features such as the detection of bottle-necks in the pipeline network, the optimization in the planning of new operational strategies by evaluating the costs of different network expansions or modifications.

GANESO® performs both steady-state and transient simulations, which allows to know the time evolution and the value at each point of the gas pipeline of variables such as pressure, temperature or gas quality; as well as to analyze the linepack impact of sudden changes in the demand or in the entry nodes of the network.

Hybrid Training: Virtual Reality meets the real world – Falck – Martijn Wassenaar – Business development Scenario Based- and Crisis Management Training – Falck Safety Services – & – Tim Lodder – Business Development Manager Maritime & Offshore – XVR Simulation

16.30 – 17.00
Use of simulation for efficient ROV operations – Peter Richardson – Lead Simulation Engineer – Fugro

Fugro’s DeepWorks subsea simulator is a set of engineering tools that assist subsea operations from conceptual design, through procedural development to operational deployment. Using its accurate physics engine to calculate the appropriate hydrodynamics and the graphics engine to visualise the subsea environment allows procedures to be rehearsed and improved, designs to be optimised and risks identified and addressed.

This presentation will highlight a number of ROV Inspection Repair and Maintenance (IRM) projects supported by the Fugro Subsea Services Engineering department which have benefited from the use of simulation. Each case study will discuss the client requirements with regards to simulation, the modelling required for the project, the construction of the simulated environment and showcase the final simulation video. As a result of using simulation each of these projects achieved efficient ROV operations offshore, providing a cost-effective technology based engineering solution to the client.

17.00 – 17.30
Novel Uses of 3D Immersive Visualization Platforms for Safety Training in the Oil and Gas Industry – Nils Andersson – Chief Technical Officer – EON Reality

As part of an effort to enhance process safety, EMRQ and EON Reality has implemented a research program to develop an advanced, immersive, 3D training platform. Initial work involved the development of generic 3D models for typical oil and gas facilities equipment such as compressor skids, and a patented linkage protocol for connecting the 3D training environment to control room panel training simulators in real time. This unique aspect will enable multiple 3D platforms and control panel simulators to be connected, allowing teams to train simultaneously on the same scenario. In this case, field operators and control room operators can interact in real time simulations similar to how they would interact in a field environment. Current work is focusing on enhancing the robustness of the system by building a large, complex 3D model of a full gas processing facility, the development of critical work process training scenarios, and executing the work needed to allow for the connection of multiple platforms. Also, work continues to enhance the realism of the training environment through visual enhancements and the incorporation of other sensory stimuli to the training experience. The element of realism being developed in this program will allow for more effective training and enable workers to perform their jobs more safely.

The presentation will go through objectives, background, compressor simulator, marine simulator, gas processing facility simulator, augmented reality, 4D enhancements and conclusions.

17.30
We will end the day with a special networking session in the exhibition area. This will be the perfect platform to meet people in a relaxed manner.
