FEATURE: Please provide a manual sorting option for the Conditions tab in the Scale Scenario object.   Temperature and pressure do not always change in a single direction during production and so this feature will help in those cases, if a client needs to add additional points to their calculation.

User can right click the mouse on the location grid to rearrange the condition order by manually moving a row up or down.

We need the capability to plot both the varied brines which go in the mixing waters. This is under Mixing Water -> variables -> Varied Brine

This is fixed and either Brine can be used as the plot variable. Also user can select either Ratio or Flow as the unit on the plot.

4631 16088 Stream Analyzer

The inflow composition for the set pH is fixed at 550000 ppm CaCl2, 580 ppm FeCl3 and
398 ppm CaOH2.    This amount of CaOH2 is about what is needed to achieve a
4 pH.

Please look at the Output tab, and you will see how the inflows have changed.

Next, look at the survey, since this is where the problem is most severe.
It is a CaCl2 survey from 0 to 550000 ppm CaCl2 by 10,000 ppm increments.
The pH is fixed at 4 .  The plot is total dissolved Fe vs. CaCl2 inflow. 
You will see that the recombining of the inflows skewed the CaCl2 in values – the balance of the CaCl2 inflow is converted to CaOH2 inflow

This was fixed prior to the final release of 9.5.3.

If a user tries to add a volume % or Temp value on the assay screen first instead of typing the component name, and then tries to add the name, the screen does not refresh automatically. Vol and temp table should be greyed out till an assay name is added.

This is fixed and will behave as follow: (1) If the Assay name is blank, the distillation table is locked and can't accept any input. (2) When a valid assay name is given, the blank row on the distillation table is displayed and user can enter data. (3) if the assay name is deleted all rows on the distillation table are removed and the table is locked. (4) Only one assay is allowed in Oil. This was not enforced before the fix, and it is now. (5) Before the fix if you enter Vol/Temp first and then enter an assay name, all controls are still disabled. It is fixed now.

Water Analyzer file. Worked in 9.5.2 but fails in 9.5.3 with The FORTRAN failed to obtain requested double data.

This is caused by the first survey point setting the composition to 0 reducing the number of kvalues (NKA), KValues need to be returned based on NK

K-values are now returned based on AKNAMEO orders and a total of NK. The K-values are zeroed if these can't be extracted from the AV vector (e.g., AV vector doesn't have it).

The report does not total Ce(+4) correctly in the MBG section. Part of the solid mass is missing for one of the hydrates. There may be other issues with MBG reports

This was a result of a database import issue (OLI Studio only). The MBG values are calculated by OLI Studio using the stoichiometric values in the database. However, the access import routine was inferring the data type incorrectly because 1.0 was shown as 1 and it considered it an integer. So the CEO2NIT.9H2O had a stoic of 0 for Ce which should have been 0.7. Updated the import code to correctly handle exporting 1.000 as 1.0.

The pST setting in the global scalechem calculation options does not pass down correctly to 4 scale chem objects, namely, Scenario, Saturator, MixingWater, and Facilities. pST in these objects are always turned on; however, the method (Estimated or Rigorous) selection is honored correctly.

A file was forgotten to be checked- in (ScaleAnalyzerMessageHandler.cpp) when Bug#3767 was resolved back in April.

I am working on the new V9.5.3 features/functions and noticed that the
Copy option for the plot has changed.   I am specifically referring to the
dual survey calculation.

This is what existed in V9.3.2 (and probably V9.5.2)

  • When copying from the Plot the pasted values were in an x-y matrix where x is the first survey and y is the second survey.
  • When selecting the View Data button, the data was in an array where the x was repeated for every y. 

It appears that in the new version copying from the Plot view creates the array and no longer the matrix.   If I save to a CSV, the matrix view is preserved.

Please change the Copy from Plot view back to the matrix or confirm that the matrix copy is still there.

The default copy mode was changed and checked in by mistake, it is controlled by a registry key so you can add the following registry key and set it to false to get back the previous behavior.

Water Analysis: Added/removed CO2 not displayed in summary section, present in output grid

Several issues have been resolved in the fix. (1) In void
StreamAlkalinityDlg::OnOK() we must call m_pAlkData->setUseSingleTitrant before calling m_pAlkData->setAlkalinitySpec, so in AlkalinityData::setAlkalinitySpec PHTitrantAcidTag, PHTitrantBaseTag, and m_pUcvSingleTitrant will be correctly assigned. Otherwise switching to single titrant will have problem. (2) getAddedAlkTitrant is implemented so the CO2 can be displayed in the summary pane. (3) ReconcileCalc under Brine may not display the added/removed pH titrant correctly. This is due to the Brine's ReconcileCalc only has a work stream (no result stream). To resolve the problem, the function GetAddedValueAsString() is replaced with
getAddedValueAsString() and it uses s_csAddedSingleTitrantTag instead of using diff between inputStream (work) and outputStream (result).

CRASH: Model generation after Save As Stream. Case was using surface complexation species.

Water Analysis: Single titrant pH reports default titrant in report. I used CO2 to reconcile the pH But on the Report tab, HCl is mentioned. The mg/L value is the same.

This is related to Bug#4648. When using a single titrant other than the default HCL or NaOH, the new titrant is stored in m_pUcvSingleTitrant correctly (fixed in Bug#4648). However, when loading a saved case with incorrect single titrant stored, it is not changed to the correct one during file loading. It is now fixed in the serialization.

More fix. If m_pUcvPHTitrantBase in Serialization is not the same tag with m_pUcvPHTitrantAcid (single titrant mode) due to previous version, we must use m_pUcvPHTitrantAcid tag for m_pUcvPHTitrantBase  and m_pUcvSingleTitrant.

In this case a gas object fails to converge when using H2O saturate option. I think this is an initializer issue. See the object (Use this).

I simulated the H2O saturate by running an H2O composition survey. With Restart=OFF there are many all vapor points which is probably unrealistic with the moderately heavy hydrocarbons.

With Restart=ON the plot is much more realistic

Two separate issues have been fixed:
1) Phase checks have been added for gas stream saturate with water.
2) Re-initializing after variables are bounded.

ScaleChem: Drag and drop into a saturator natively selects a brine instead of whole fluid

When drag drop a Saturator to a Scenario, Saturator, or Facilities grid, it will first be considered as a Whole Fluid inlet. However, when drag drop a Saturator to a MixingWater, if either of the 2 brines is empty the Saturator will become one of the brines. Otherwise the Saturator will become a Whole Fluid.

The solver becomes very slow (or does not solve at all) when adding a
minute amount of H2S to the stream. See the “BP curve” survey. It readily solves with H2S = 0, but not with H2S = 1e-6

Confirmed: In the attached file (look for the USE This!) tag, when H2S = 0 the run time is about 3.6 seconds.  With 1.E-06 moles H2S the run-time is well over 1200 Seconds.  It seems to be stuck on a phase check for the second liquid phase.  No such phase exists when H2S = 0.0.

It could be that the H2S - Hydrocarbon interaction is incorrect.

Please calculate the set pH single point using different volumes, 0.001 m3, 1m3, and 755 m3.  Please look at the NaOH added in the Summary section. There is a multiplier factor that increases the concentration of NaOH used that is linked to the Stream Amount volume entered.   The report shows that the identical amount of Na+1 exists in the water regardess of the volume, so the actual flash calculation is fine.

Option to allow facilities calculation to continue if alkalinity calculation fails.

This needs to be addressed in the Engine, EQALK needs to continue on if Alkalinity calculation fails, and report back that the alkalinity calc failed. By return the Big number value returned by calling EQSOLD ID=501.

Solver issue, incorrect phase behavior for amine splits. This seems to be a solver issue and not a databank issue.  The melting point of MEXHCL is approximately 85 C in the databank and the solver predicts 90 C.  In this case, the survey with Restart=Off has some stray MEXHCL solid above this temperature. This is unlikely to happen. A liquid phase perhaps but not a solid.

If you run the case with Retart=On (also in the file) we get a much more reasonable phase transition.

Phase inclusion/exclusion check was updated.

Scaling tendency value difference due to the scope of access of serial number. In a case file, CaCO3 is chosen as precipitating solid. While there is no solid CaCO3 formed, its post-scaling tendency = 1.00002 Isn’t this a bug?

The previous encryption caused a slight change in numbers during encpytion->decryption. This was fixed by adding a new module that encpytion->performs a lossless data encryption/decryption method by manipulating the strings read from the .dbs file instead of numbers.

Please turn on heat capacity properties from calculation options for the brine, gas and the saturate object.Then calculate again and it fails.

This is not related to Heat capacity. One of the main problem that we realized that in this file, the saturator is trying to precipitate the two solids , CaCO3 and CaSO4, which have a big difference in the solubilities.  If you select CaSO4.2H2O, gypsum , then your case should converge consistently.

Difference in contour plot for two files with same numbers. For the same numbers for the objects the dbs are compared, the contour plot though similar, one point fails.

For ScaleChem Studio calculations (Scenario, Saturator, MixingWater, and Facilities), a mass column is added to the Inlets Summary table of the report to show mass from each inlet. In the Stream Properties table a total mass row is added at the bottom of the table. In the Facilities report a new section (Mass Balance Summary) is added and the default is off (hidden). This section has a table showing the mass balance across all nodes and all external objects used in the Facilities. To see the newly implemented mass features, user may need to do a calculation if an existing case saved by early version is loaded.

During training in Galveston, we noticed this issue, when I create an Oil analysis object and my Studio is in MSE framework, the object does not recognize the following components:

However if I switch to AQ and switch back to MSE, then the cross mark behind the names disappear.

In Oil and Gas the standard/expanded species are now stored by tags instead of formulas. Species may have different formula in Aq model than in MSE, but they have the same tags.

I have grave doubts now about direct association of mineral names with precipitates such as NAClPPT or NIOH2PPT. As I understand it, precipitates which result in process streams are more often than not in amorphous form.

It can take geologic time to convert an amorphous form into a specific mineral. Not only that but many minerals have the same chemical formula but different forms resulting from the geological history of the mineral form.

pScaleTend not the same when solids turned on and off when calculating a non-isothermal object (such as dew point).

The current algorithm for PScale Tendency in the Solver works for TP flash.
The idea of pScale is to calculate scale tendency before solid phase is introduced in the process of convergence at fixed T and P.

Since this case is a flash calculation of fixed P and vapor fraction, the resultant T will be varied from the initial value. However the pScale is calculated based on the initial T, rather than the final resultant T. the pScale cannot be calculated at the final T since at that time, the solid phase has already introduced. Speciation and activity coeff. of the system are not the same as before the solids are introduced.

Solver will issue warning message if the pScale calculation T&P is different than the final conditions.

All ScaleChem grids serialize the current cell location, so if user click on certain cell and click other object and comes back the cell will remain at user's previous selection.

The two ionic strength variables are indistinguishable – is it possible to change the names to 

Ionic Strength – Liq1 (mol/mol)
Ionic Strength – Liq1 (molal)

Or something like this

Also, are we willing to truncate Strength to Str. And are we using Liq1 or Aq into the future?

The code to update the pressure range was updating the temperature range in certain cases. Refactored code for rangeAdded (m-based) and (x-based) to Ionic Strength namesupdating to fix the issue.

Is there are way to create a report of OLI Stream Analyzer’s assumed species MWs?   We wouldn’t need all the species, but a subset that are of interest for one of our projects.

The molecular weights are added into the Speciation Table and the format of the table is modified. Species names will be on the left column and each phase will be a new column.  An "X" will mark the associated phase
column(s) for a species if it exists in the phase(s). User Inflows and Related Inflows columns are removed; however, if a species only exists in the User Inflows or in the Related Inflows, it will be displayed with no "X" on any of the phase column. On the other hand, e.g., if a species only exists in the Vapor phase, and the Vapor phase is turned off, the entire row for the species will be hidden.

Delete a calculated brine may cause incorrect reference count. Map still has the brine as well as its ReconcileCalc. Another issue is that after a brine calculation the engine is not unloaded since Brine is set as a ResultCalc. This may cause a heap corruption.

For the reference count bug it is fixed by overriding the
prepareForDeletion() in Brine and clear the result and the ReconcileCalc before calling base's prepareForDeletion(). For the heap corruption bug a temporary workaround is adding a transition Boolean t_bCanUnloadSolverForResultCalc in ScratchPadCalc and have Brine and other ScaleChem objects setting it true before calculation.

Water analysis case stuck on ion entry, shows they are not valid chemical. There seems no work around once it starts happening.

When a Facilities contains assay generated pseudo components, the calculated state in certain node(s) may get cleared after save and open.

This is due to the Bug#3097 fix that assay generated PCs were removed from the input stream's user inflow as well as the chemistry model. In Facilities we use a global chemistry model and each node may have different species. Thus the node(s) with assay generated PCs being 0.0 will have these PCs removed during Stream::postSerialization() and the calculated state is cleared. It is now fixed that PCs with zero values can be removed only when the associated assay exists in the user inflows.

When the user changes the inlet type on an existing inlet in the grid, if the existing provider can fulfill the new type then the name of the provider should remain in the inlet name cell.  Current version automatically deletes the existing inlet name and requires the user to enter a inlet name.

The existing inlet will stay if it can provide the new type that user selected.  The other fix is that inlet type dropdown list will include types regarding the current provider-receiver relationship. For example if
Node2 is taking WF from Node1, then BrineFrom, OilFrom, GasFrom are available types when user click the dropdown list on the WF from cell. This is because these inlet types are inclusive in the WF from inlet type.
