C-FER Technologies

C-FER Technologies is an engineering company focused on facilitating the use of leading edge technology in the oil, gas, and pipeline industries. Their customers include most of the world’s major oil and gas companies, pipeline transmission companies, as well as their respective manufacturers.

The Challenge

Identify and safeguard against the hazards involved in the extraction of unconventional oil.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Engineers at C-FER utilized Abaqus finite element analysis (FEA) software from SIMULIA to conduct full-scale tests, perform failure investigations, and design optimization.

Benefits

Through the use of realistic simulation, C-FER was able to reduce their development costs and time, cut back on physical prototyping, and develop an optimized design to minimize failures while maximizing uptime and profit.
