1.1 Introduction
We are pleased to introduce the PIPESIM Single Branch Extension to
HYSYS - the first and only commercial coupling between petroleum and
process simulation. This extension is a result of a collaborative
development between Hyprotech and Baker Jardine. Together we are
working on a vision of “Total Hydrocarbon Asset Management”.
Examining the sensitivity of production and process systems
simultaneously or performing production system optimization can
yield significant production benefits, sometimes as high as 15%
increases in production. We at Hyprotech and Baker Jardine aim to bring
you the commercial software tools to achieve these gains.
Hyprotech and Baker Jardine have announced an alliance aimed at
producing the first fully integrated, commercial Production System
Model. In this, the first product from our alliance, Baker Jardine’s
industry leading wellbore, tubing, and flowline simulation software,
PIPESIM, has been coupled into Hyprotech’s HYSYS simulation
environment, allowing for the development of models from well
description through the entire process production facilities sharing
common PVT descriptions from the HYSYS thermodynamics.
Existing PIPESIM production models of wells, flowlines, and risers can
be imported into the HYSYS environment and used seamlessly as a
HYSYS unit operation using the power of the PIPESIM engine in the
background. This first release is limited to a serial string of devices
within the PIPESIM model where there is no change in composition; all
composition changes are handled within the HYSYS environment.
However, one can add multiple PIPESIM extensions to any HYSYS
simulation.

1.2 How This Manual Is Organized
This user manual is a comprehensive guide that details all the
procedures you need to work with the PIPESIM Link extension. To help
you learn how to use PIPESIM Link efficiently, this manual thoroughly
describes the views and capabilities of the PIPESIM Link as well as
outlining the procedural steps needed for running the extension. The
basics of building a simple PIPESIM Link model is explored in the
tutorial (example) problem. The case is presented as a logical sequence
of steps that outline the basic procedures needed to build a PIPESIM
Link case.
This manual also outlines the relevant parameters for defining the entire
extension and its environment. Each view is defined on a page-by-page
basis to give you a complete understanding of the data requirements for
the components and the capabilities of the extension.
The PIPESIM Link Users’ Guide does not detail HYSYS procedures and
assumes that you are familiar with the HYSYS environment and
conventions. If you require more information on working with HYSYS,
please see HYSYS Manuals. Here you will find all the information you
require to set up a case and work efficiently within the simulation
environment. If you require more information regarding PIPESIM 2000
please refer to the PIPESIM 2000 reference manuals.

2.3.2 Using the PIPESIM Link
You can work with PIPESIM Link only as it exists as part of a HYSYS case.
Extensions that are part of an existing case can be accessed upon
entering HYSYS Main Simulation Environment. Here you can view and
manipulate them as you would any HYSYS unit operation.
Before creating a new PIPESIM Link Extension you are required to be
working within a HYSYS case that has as a minimum of a fluid package,
consisting of a property package and components. New PIPESIM Link
Extensions are added within the Main Simulation Environment from the
UnitOps view, which lists all the available Unit Operations.
To create a new PIPESIM Link Extension, select PIPESIM Link Extension
in the list of Available Unit Operations as shown above. Click the Add
button and a new PIPESIM Link Extension will appear on the screen.

3.1 Introduction
The PIPESIM Link Extension is a unit operation for using the PIPESIM
software package used to simulate pipeline systems within the HYSYS
framework. The PIPESIM Link functions in the same manner as any
HYSYS unit operation or application in terms of its layout and data entry
methods. The view consists of 3 worksheet tabs. At the bottom of each
worksheet is a status bar which guides data entry and indicates required
information, as well as indicating the status of the PIPESIM simulation
once the calculation has been initialized.
PIPESIM has a comprehensive suite of methods and correlations for
modeling single and multi-phase flow in production equipment and is
capable of accurately simulating a wide range of conditions and
situations. You have the option of using the default correlations for the
PIPESIM calculations, or specifying your own set from the list of
available methods for each parameter. Any change to the PIPESIM
models must be done from within the PIPESIM environment.
PIPESIM is fully compatible with all of the gas, liquid, and gas/liquid
fluid packages in HYSYS. You can combine PIPESIM and HYSYS objects
in any configuration during the construction of a HYSYS flowsheet.
PIPESIM objects can be inserted at any point in the flowsheet where
single or multi-phase pipe flow effects must be accounted for in the
process simulation.
3-4 PIPESIM Link Features
3-4
3.2 PIPESIM Link Features
The PIPESIM Link extension is functionally equivalent to a HYSYS
flowsheet operation. It is installed in a flowsheet and connected to
material streams. Unlike a standard pipe segment an energy stream is
not supported. All PIPESIM Link Extension properties are accessed and
changed through a set of property views that are simple and convenient
to use. Chief among these, and the starting point for the definition of a
PIPESIM Link Operation, is the main PIPESIM Link view.
The main PIPESIM Link view is where the inlet and outlet material
streams are specified. The Inlet Object and Outlet Object fields are read
only. These fields are blank when the extension is first installed. Once
the PIPESIM Link model has been selected, via the Model page, the
names of the boundary objects within the PIPESIM Link model will be
displayed
The following specifications are supported in addition to the inlet
temperature that must always be specified.
• Inlet flow and inlet pressure.
• Inlet flow and outlet pressure.
• Inlet pressure and outlet pressure.
The HYSYS specifications will always override any specifications made
within the PIPESIM model.
The following restrictions may surprise experienced HYSYS users:
• An outlet flow specification is not the same as an inlet flow
specification since the PIPESIM Link model may manipulate the
flow such that inlet does not equal outlet flow.
• Negative flowrate cases are not supported for modeling reverse
flow.

3.3 Adding the PIPESIM Link
Adding a PIPESIM Link Extension to a HYSYS Case
Carry out the following steps to add a PIPESIM Link Operation to a
HYSYS case:
1. Your first task is to create a HYSYS case suitable for the addition of
the PIPESIM Link Extension. As a minimum, you must create a case
with a fluid package and two material streams.
2. With the case open, select Add Operation command from the
Flowsheet menu. In the UnitOps view, select the Extensions radio
button and select the PIPESIM Link from the Available Unit
Operations group. Click the Add button.
3. Select material streams from the Inlet and Outlet drop-down lists on
the Connections page of the PIPESIM Link view. If you have not yet
installed these streams in the case, they can be created by directly
entering their names on the Connections page. To define the stream
conditions, right-click on the name and select View command from
the Object Inspect menu.
Following these steps allows you to complete the installation of a
PIPESIM Link Extension. Once the calculations are complete the Object
Status bar will be green and state OK.
Figure 3.1
For further details on
creating a HYSYS case,
refer to the HYSYS manuals
3-6 PIPESIM Link User Interface
3-6
3.4 PIPESIM Link User Interface
The PIPESIM Link user interface is completely integrated into the
HYSYS environment and conforms to all HYSYS usage conventions for
operations and data entry. If you are an experienced user of HYSYS, you
will already be familiar with all of the features of the PIPESIM Link user
interface. If you are a new user, you should begin by studying the HYSYS
Reference Manuals, since you will need to learn more about HYSYS
before you can use the PIPESIM Link Extension.
Like all HYSYS property views, PIPESIM Link property view allow access
to all of the information associated with a particular item. The view has
a number of tabs and on each tab are pages of related parameters.
Figure 3.2
PIPESIM Link View 3-7
3-7
3.5 Main PIPESIM Link View
The main PIPESIM Link view is the first view that appears when adding
a PIPESIM Link operation to a HYSYS flowsheet. This view provides you
with a place to enter the data that defines the basic characteristics of a
PIPESIM Link operation.
The main PIPESIM Link view is the starting point for the definition of
any PIPESIM Link operation. When you select Add Operation command
in the Flowsheet menu from the menu bar and then select PIPESIM Link
extension, the main PIPESIM Link view will appear and be ready to
accept input. You must then select each of the tabs on the main PIPESIM
Link view and complete them as required.
Figure 3.3
3-8 Main PIPESIM Link View
3-8
3.5.1 Design Tab
This tab is used to define the connections between the HYSYS
simulation case and the PIPESIM Link operation, to import and export
PIPESIM cases and to view the basis for tabular physical properties.
Connection Page
The Connection page allows you to select the input and output material
streams using the drop-down list or by directly entering new material
streams. You can also enter a name for the operation using the Name
field.
The Ignore this UnitOp During Calculations checkbox can be checked if
you want to disable the concurrent calculation of intermediate results
during data entry.
Model Page
From the Model page you are able to import, export, and edit a PIPESIM
model.
Figure 3.4
This setting is recommended
if you have a slow computer
and data processing is
slowing down the entry
process or if you want to delay
the calculations until you have
entered all of your data.
PIPESIM Link View 3-9
3-9
The Original PIPESIM Model field is read only and echoes the original
path and file name of the model that is imported via the Import button.
It is important to note that this field is for documentation purposes only
since the model is embedded within the HYSYS model rather than
referenced at the location in this field. It may be empty if the model has
been created from within the link, rather than by importing an existing
PIPESIM model.
The Import button allows you to import an existing PIPESIM model.
Clicking the Import button opens the standard Window file picker view
that allows model selection. Only single branch models identified by the
*.bps extension can be selected.
The Edit Model button loads and runs the PIPESIM2000 GUI with the
current model. If a model has not been imported then the PIPESIM2000
GUI contains an empty model. When the GUI is loaded, a work file
name appears in the caption bar. The model can be freely edited, but in
order for changes to be reflected in the HYSYS flowsheet, it must be
saved under the same file name.
Figure 3.5
3-10 Main PIPESIM Link View
3-10
The PIPESIM2000 GUI appears modally, so HYSYS does not continue its
calculation until the GUI is closed. The PIPESIM model is saved with the
HYSYS case and not recorded stand alone.
The Export button allows you to make a copy of the PIPESIM model
reflecting any changes made since importing it. Clicking the Export
button opens the standard Windows file picker view that allows
selection of the file name. Only single branch models identified by the
*.bps extension can be selected. Notice that only the configuration of the
pipes and nodes will be changed. The source composition data is not
changed to reflect the current composition of the feed stream in the
HYSYS flowsheet.
PVT Page
The PIPESIM model solves using tabular physical properties generated
by the chosen HYSYS property package. This table defines the extents
and granularity of the table. The table is regenerated using the current
feed composition each time the link resolves. A maximum of 20 pressure
and 20 temperature points can be specified.
Because the PVT table corresponds to a single composition, the
PIPESIM model may not contain any unit operations that change the
compositions of the fluid. Thus the following restrictions apply:
• Vapour/Liquid separators are not supported.
• Well completions cannot use gas lift.
If any of these constraints are violated the status bar gives an
appropriate indication and the link will not attempt to solve.
PIPESIM Link View 3-11
3-11
The Set to Default button sets the values of the pressure and
temperature points to correspond to the internal PIPESIM default
values. Calculations does not start unless the data is in ascending order.
Use the Sort button if this is not the case.
The Export button exports the PVT table file for stand alone use with
PIPESIM.

3.5.2 Performance Tab
The Performance tab contains two pages that allow you to view a table
of the profile data and to view the traditional PIPESIM output.
Profiles Page
The Profiles page displays a tabular view of the profile data for the
following key variables vs. axial distance along the pipe: Mass Flow,
Pressure, Temperature, Holdup (actual volumetric) and Velocity.
Figure 3.7

PIPESIM Page
The PIPESIM page displays the traditional PIPESIM output. The type of
view can be chosen by selecting one of the following view radio buttons:
• None. Select this if the link is within a recycle and/or adjust loop
to minimise the overhead of importing the results files into the
display widget.
• Output File.
• Summary File.
Pipe profiles can also be viewed by clicking the PSPLOT button on the
PIPESIM page. The PSPLOT button loads and run the PIPESIM plotting
utility.
Figure 3.8
3-14 Main PIPESIM Link View

The PIPESIM plotting utility can be used to display any of the profile
results that have been calculated by PIPESIM.
The PSPLOT appears modally, so HYSYS does not continue its
calculations until PSPLOT is closed.

4.1 Introduction
The purpose of this procedure is to insert a PIPESIM pipeline into
HYSYS that has a series of connecting components. In this example, you
will go through the steps to importing a PIPESIM model into HYSYS. All
units of measurement in this example are SI, but feel free to change
these to whatever unit system you are accustomed to using
For this case, a simple PIPESIM pipeline consisting of a fluid source, a
tubing, a choke, a flowline, an operator, a second flowline, and a riser
will be imported into HYSYS. The figure below shows the PIPESIM
piping schematic of the system.
