LedaFlow® Products

All LedaFlow products are sold via Kongsberg Digital. The following products are available:

LedaFlow Engineering 1D Advanced transient multiphase flow simulator that models the dynamics of multiple fluid phases within wells and pipe networks.

Solves mass equations for all nine fields (dispersed and continuous) of the three phase flow (oil, gas and water) while the energy and momentum conservation are solved for each zone (continuous phase with the dispersed phases it contains). This improves the accuracy in simulation of critical transient events and consequently provides a step change in the understanding of fluid behavior.

Can be used by multiple disciplines throughout the project lifecycle to address gas/liquid, thermal, solid and integrity management challenges.

LedaFlow Point Model Provides estimates of liquid volume fractions, pressure gradient and flow regimes at a single point in a pipeline or a well based on local conditions.

Available as a plug-in to third party steady-state software such as:

  • Maximus (KBC)
  • Prosper & GAP (Petroleum Experts)
  • Pipesim (Schlumberger)
  • SynerGee (DNV-GL)
  • WellFlo® & ReO® (Weatherford)
  • VMGSim (VMG)
LedaFlow Integrated

Transient engine that can be plugged into dynamic process simulators to create:

  • Integrated Engineering Simulators
  • Operator Training Simulators (OTS)
  • Production Management Systems (PMS)
  • Virtual Flow Metering Systems (VFMS)

Has a published standard API that currently links to Kongsberg’s K-Spice and is open to link to 3rd party software.

LedaFlow® Support

LedaFlow includes on-line documentation which describes how to use the software and the methodology behind it.

License holders have access to support through ledaflow@kdisupport24.com

As LedaFlow is developing rapidly with the ambition to be the easiest and most efficient multiphase simulator we are keen to receive all users’ suggestions for improvements and new features. This can also be sent to the support email and will be logged in our development system tagged to the clients’ company name so we can report when the features are included in a new release.

LedaFlow® Courses & Workshops

Kongsberg Digital provides workshops and trainings to teach you how to use LedaFlow. Trainings and workshops are offered:

  • As an on-site course (up to 8 participants per trainer)
  • By participating in a scheduled course at Kongsberg’s offices
