Arundo Analytics, a software company enabling advanced analytics in heavy industry, and ABB, a global supplier of control and automation technologies, have collaborated to create the first cloud-based virtual multiphase flow meters for the offshore oil and gas industry. This solution will be part of the fully integrated ABB Ability™ portfolio for the oil and gas industry.
Espen Storkaas, ABB Group Vice-President for Offshore Oil & Gas Digital, said, “Our customers are demanding lower purchase, installation, and ongoing support costs in their operations. Using the scalable Arundo software to combine physical models with the latest in data science and machine learning, we are able to bring a number of innovative, cloud-based data-driven applications to the oil and gas industry.”
For over fifty years, ABB has leveraged extensive physical modelling and simulation experience to deliver analytical insights into the offshore oil and gas industry – this includes modelling flows of individual phases of various intermingled fluids in a single stream. Typically, such flows are measured with expensive multiphase flow meters (MPFMs), which can be a significant amount of a facilities capital expense.
