Alexandre Himmelein

First Design of PVT Module

15/01/2018 – 13/07/2018

Alexandre started to work on the first version of the PVT Model developed by Kelda and that will later on be integrated inside Straume® and the Influx Management Envelop (IME). 


The initial idea was to develop a tool that could predict accurate density within the well for a given pressure and temperature. Second phase was then to compute phase equilibrium calculation to get bubble points location all over the well.


It required to create a Matlab thermochemical model coupled with an HMI. Alexandre also worked on C++ translation as shareability and speed were two main KPIs of the project.
