LedaFlow helps drive down costs associated with carbon capture and storage (CCS) operations to make cleaner energy more affordable. Additional functionality includes slug, hydrate, gas and liquid management, and start-up/shut-down/restart of wells and pipelines.

LedaFlow solves the mass balance equations for all nine fields (gas, oil, and water in the bulk and two dispersed fields per phase) while momentum and energy equations are solved for the three continuous phases. This detailed approach enables closer matching to laboratory and field data.
As LedaFlow solves separate energy equations for all three phases, much more accurate information can be determined during stratified flow and during blow down conditions where the temperature of the slower moving liquids at the bottom of a pipe can differ considerably from the gas flowing above.
LedaFlow uses a Unit Cell Model for modelling terrain and riser induced slugging. It also includes Slug Capturing which is the first commercially available solution to accurately predict hydrodynamic slug behavior without user input.
The hydrate transport model calculates the formation and transport of hydrate particles. It is used to evaluate the possibility to operate inside the hydrate risk region by taking into account the effect of inhibitors, the changes in temperature due to the heat of reaction and the effect on fluid properties.
The wax deposition module simulates creation, melting and deposition of wax. It is used to determine the pigging frequency required to keep wax deposits under control.
LedaFlow includes a group of tools to generate profiles that are suitable for dynamic simulations. These tools include several filtering methods, a simplification tool based on the methodology developed by Erich Zakarian and an algorithm that can generate a realistic profile when data is missing.
