In recent years, major structural changes have occurred in the gas industry and in its underlying economics. These changes demand responses from the pipeline operating companies in order that optimum efficiency and profitability is maintained within the new environment. As a result, a major effort has taken place aimed at reducing overall operating costs and in particular the cost of transporting natural gas. To assist their efforts, several companies have resorted to transient simulation models some of which incorporate various degrees of optimising capability.
