Using online simulation to create a real-time digital twin for pipeline and network operations

John Anderton

Senior Simulation Consultant at Atmos International

Session Description
John Anderton, the Senior Simulation Consultant at Atmos International, a seasoned expert with 25 years of experience in pipeline simulation. From project delivery to software development and even a stint as a business analyst for a major Australian gas transportation company, John’s journey is a testament to his unparalleled expertise. Specializing in offline and online simulation for the Oil & Gas industry, he’s collaborated with global operators, earning him a prominent position in the field. Recently, John graced the Oil & Gas Digital Twin Conference 2023 with his insights. In this blog, we delve into his presentations, uncovering the gems of wisdom he shared at the conference.

John’s big idea is like having a virtual copy of a pipeline that behaves just like the real one. He uses fancy computer tricks to create this digital twin, and it’s so accurate that it can help make smart decisions for pipeline operators. Think of it like having a crystal ball that tells you what’s going to happen with the pipeline. With this magic tool, pipeline people can deal with challenges quickly, like making sure the gas is high quality and there’s enough of it. It’s like playing a video game, but for pipelines – and the stakes are real.

John’s talk also showed how this virtual magic can help pipeline controllers know exactly what’s happening in real time. This means they can make quick and smart choices, like adjusting things when there’s a change in demand. It’s like having superhero senses that help you predict what’s coming. As technology gets even better, this pipeline magic is going to change the way pipelines are managed. It’s like giving pipelines a superpower – the power to be more efficient and reliable than ever before.
