Course Description:

This course provides an overview of integrated asset modeling (IAM), its concept and significance to enhance and optimize complex oil and gas field systems. The course also equips participants with knowledge and skills necessary to create and maintain an integrated asset modeling tools using multiple software applications to build models for thermodynamic, reservoirs, completion-wellbores, surface pipeline networks, surface process equipment and economic, respectively. The main focus is to learn how to build these models from the scratch and understand the theory and concept behind them. Participants will learn how to integrate these different models and run them all as a piece. It will also highlight methodology to detect, resolve and optimize bottlenecks, and perform forecasting to get a better insight for future deterministic and probabilistic performance of the model. It also reviews different hydrocarbon production optimization methods for single and multi-reservoir fields. Different scenarios will be reviewed and discussed to understand the potentials and limitations of the IAM as a key tool for field optimization, re-development, and budget planning. Case studies will be discussed to illustrate the field application of the concepts in the course.
