Woodside, Pluto LNG Project

The flow reduction inside the trench for the Pluto offshore gas pipelines is determined by NS3. A range of trench widths, trench wall side slopes, and locations along the route have been modelled. The results have been analysed given a reduction factor on the near bed current speed and poor bed orbital velocity.

Extended Analyses of Wave Forces on GBS

From comparison of NS3 calculations of wave forces on a GBS foundation to forces estimated with the Morison equation it was found that typical force coefficients, CM and CD, gave a too small overturning moment. The coefficients are optimised to overcome this.

Tatar Strait Tidal Forecast

A pipeline connecting Russia to Sakhalin Island is proposed to be built. The pipeline will be built in a relatively shallow area, which necessitates the prediction of tidal level in the area in question. DHI was commissioned to deliver tidal and current forecast based on MIKE21 HD simulations. Tidal constituents were used as boundary conditions in the model.

Seabed Lowering

The seabed around the Khazzan oil storage tank has lowered so that a gap has formed between the bottom of the tank edge and the seabed up to 1.5 m. The objective of the study was to verify that the present gaps have developed due to scouring of the seabed over time. DHI's in-house CFD model NS3 was used to simulate the wave and current action around and under the tank. The results from the simulations were used to evaluate the present scouring and to design the gap closure.
