The Flow Assurance Engineer is responsible for the design of oil and gas production systems and assessment of their operability; including wells, flowline and risers, production and injection facilities, and pipelines.  The Flow Assurance Engineer uses analytical and computational tools to predict the transient multiphase flow and thermal behavior of the production system and develops and documents functional requirements and operational strategies to prevent, mitigate, and remediate vulnerabilities associated with gas hydrate formation, wax deposition, and other solids.

Job Role Responsibilities



  • During the project cycle, flow assurance engineers conduct technical studies to assess system operability, including
  • Fluid characterization using a thermodynamic simulator to model the PVT behavior of produced fluids
  • Steady-state, single-phase flow modeling to size gas and/or water injection systems and pipelines
  • Steady-state, multiphase fluid modeling to design production systems, including functional requirements for artificial lift and/or thermal insulation
  • Transient, multiphase fluid modeling to assess thermal and hydraulic transients during production rate changes, turndown, startup, shutdown, and blow-down; including flowline and riser slugging, cool-down, and warm-up.
  • Use of modeling and/or laboratory analysis to predict and assess solid formation, deposition, bedding and/or blockage behavior for hydrates, sand, wax, scale, asphaltene, and other solids.
  • Assessment of erosion and/or corrosion to guide proper material selection, conducted in collaboration with Materials Engineer

Job Requirements


  • Bachelor of Technology or Bachelor of Engineering from a recognized university with minimum GPA 6.5 and
  • Minimum 3 years of experience in Flow Assurance Engineering Design/Operations
  • Willingness and ability to travel internationally
  • Demonstrated work experience as a flow assurance engineer on an oil or gas field development project/operations
  • Demonstrated work experience in development of multicomponent fluid characterizations using  a thermodynamic or process simulator, such as PVTSIM, HYSYS, or equivalent
  • Demonstrated work experience in use of multiphase simulators such as OLGA, LedaFlow etc.
  • Strong communication skills
  • Willing to relocate to Bengaluru
  • Flexible to work in shifts 1.30 PM – 10.30 PM IST:
