Advanced Integration Course (RESOLVE)

Code Date Venue Fee ($)

This course is designed for users already familiar with the first level of Integration within IPM (GAP, PROSPER and MBAL) and wish to take the integrated production modelling approach to the next level, integrating numerical simulation reservoir models, process models, economics as well as implementing Global Optimisation and Field Management Rules within the system.

The course covers how to dynamically connect multiple applications and the opportunity that this level of integration brings at the moment of fully optimising our production system.

Content covers a series of projects with a variety of engineering objectives, from Field Development Planning to Daily Field Optimisation.

Course Objectives

At the end of the course, not only will the attendees be familiar with the use of RESOLVE but will also gain an understanding of how to best formulate global optimisation problems within such platforms.
