Description

This Report was developed to share information on the modelling that is associated with capping stack landing analysis, plume analysis, and gas dispersion analysis. This Report is primarily focused on landing analysis but does provide general guidance on the latter two. Topics addressed in this Report include:

• The role of CFD in the subsea well response pre-planning process

• CFD workflows

• CFD models and important factors that influence model reliability

• CFD model quality checks

• CFD reporting requirements
