High Fidelity Wax Module

A range of tools and methods exist for modelling wax buildup in flowlines currently, but these are not typically associated directly with multiphase flow software. Further, there are significant uncertainties involved in predicting the freeze out of hydrocarbons to form deposits. As part of this project we aim to create an integrated flow management tool extension that will leverage the work done by the Fluid Sciences & Resources group at UWA to improve the quality of thermodynamic modelling for wax systems. This will take advantage of extensive compositional tracking capabilities to produce high fidelity predictions of wax dropout.
