Abstract

Since the transportation task of China’s Secondary Dong-Lin crude pipeline has been changed from Shengli oil to both Shengli and Oman oils, its transportation scheme had to be changed to “batch transportation”. To determine the details of batch transportation, large amounts of simulations should be performed, but massive simulation times could be costly (they can take hundreds of days with 10 computers) using the finite volume method (FVM). To reduce the intolerable time consumption, the present paper adopts a “body-fitted coordinate-based proper orthogonal decomposition reduced-order model” (BFC-POD-ROM) to obtain faster simulations. Compared with the FVM, the adopted method reduces the time cost of thermal simulations to 2.2 days from 264 days. Subsequently, the details of batch transportation are determined based on these simulations. The Dong-Lin crude oil pipeline has been safely operating for more than two years using the determined scheme. It is found that the field data are well predicted by the POD reduced-order model with an acceptable error in crude oil engineering. View Full-Text
