NALU

NEAR-WELLBORE MODELLING

Variperm has developed its own in-house near wellbore simulator, named NALU™, dedicated to Flow Control Device (FCD) design. NALU is a low-overhead simulator that relies on limited input, provides results within minutes, and uses physical conservation equations rather than empirical relations to determine state-property profiles. Furthermore, ­NALU captures the majority of thermofluidic physics ignored in classical wellbore simulators. With this tool, engineers at Variperm can quickly iterate on a wellbore design and reliably identify relative improvements.

Evaluating Partially Completed Liner Performance

Using state-of-the-art computational fluid-dynamics (CFD) software packages, Variperm engineers have developed simulations to predict the additional pressure drop incurred from partially completing a wellbore’s liner. The simulation allows Variperm’s engineers to contrast the cost savings of a partially completed liner against the additional pressure-loss disadvantage, and in turn select a partial completion that strikes a balance between these competing factors.

Experimental & Computational Nozzle Testing

Variperm engineers are expanding there in-house testing capabilities to evaluate increasingly complex flow situations experienced by FCD nozzles. Currently, Variperm engineers can simulate and experimentally measure the performance of nozzles impinged by single-phase flows and are now developing apparatuses and models to evaluate nozzle performance during multiphase flow.
