RSI Simcon and SPT Group team on simulators

Operator training and real-time production management targeted in Franco-Norwegian joint venture.

RSI Simcon, a wholly owned unit of the French Petroleum Institute (IFP) and Oslo-based SPT Group are teaming to provide operator training simulators and real-time production management solutions for the oil & gas industry. The partnership is integrating SPT Group’s Olga multiphase flow simulator with RSI’s Indiss dynamic process simulator for use in combined engineering and operator training simulators. Indiss will also be used for process modelling alongside SPT’s Olga Online EDPM multiphase dynamic production management system. New integrated solutions will be developed to improve full lifecycle use of simulator models and to generate synergies across design, training, online monitoring and control simulators.

RSI’s 130 simulation engineers provide dynamic simulation solutions addressing process design, operator training and plant operations in the upstream and downstream. RSI projects include the OTS for Total’s Dalia FPSO, the engineering and OTS for ExxonMobil’s Canadian Sable Island development and many others. SPT’s EPDM is currently deployed on 20 projects around the world, ranging from gas-condensate and deepwater oil systems to advanced drilling operations. Olga has been used in more than 30 Operator Training Simulator projects worldwide.
