CFD Studies – FPSO Project

Project Info

Santane carried out Helideck Wind Environment Assessment and Exhaust Plume Dispersion Studies on an FPSO project using state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques.

The aim of the study was to assess impacts to helideck and other safety critical elements on the FPSO from exhaust gases from addition of new pumps & equipment. The adequacy of the location, height and orientation of the exhausts were optimised in order to minimise effect of exhaust gas on operational areas.
