GATE Prho™

Multiphase flow simulator designed to allow non-expert users to build and run field-scale models

GATE Prho™ is GATE Energy’s proprietary multiphase flow simulator designed to enable non-experts to make rapid and informed decisions ranging from production optimization to integrity assessments. It consists of simplified, robust models in fluid characterization (oil, water and gas), reservoirs, wells, artificial lift, multi-phase pump, valves, flowline and riser modules tailored to meet the end-user’s goals.

Should a more detailed analysis be required, GATE Prho™ also provides rigorous modeling features which allow practicing engineers to perform more extensive modeling exercises. After set-up, the model can be used for facility design and/or for optimizing operating fields.

 

Most fluid flow problems can be effectively addressed via simpler models. GATE Prho™ is designed for these cases. It’s the 80/20 solution.

Models in Minutes with a Systems Focus

Fit-for-purpose Modifications, Seamless Integrations & Unified Models

GATE Prho™ allows fit-for-purpose modifications. With a systems focus, open-ended computer code and customizable Graphical User Interface (GUI), GATE Prho™ can be modified to meet specific needs and/or analyze unique production designs. It captures essential field and design properties to successfully develop oil and gas systems such as flow assurance, reserve potential, integrity assessment, and breaks the silos that typically exist in a typical field-scale modeling effort.

Several examples of GATE Prho™’s seamless integrations with industry’s state-of-the art technologies include:

  • The integration of robust optimization algorithms

  • Corrosion models, valve testing protocols

  • Erosion models

  • Paraffin deposition models

  • Transient reservoir modeling in unconventional reservoirs, or, Time-lapse Nodal Analysis (TLNA).

GATE Prho™ employs rigorous mechanistic unified multiphase flow, heat transfer, Pressure-Volume-Temperature (PVT) models, benchmarked with field data and experimental results. This unique solution has been a major game changer in simplifying complex multiphase flow problems with the ability to maintain the accuracy of the results as well as to capture the physical aspects of fluid flow.
