Course Description:

A typical reservoir development problem involves many variables that affect the operational schedule involved in its management subject to economic and physical limits. It is therefore essential these operations be performed as close to optimal as possible. This course is designed to equip participants with computational methods to solve field development problems. Field cases involving well control optimization, well placement and generalized field development full field development are presented to gain hands-on experience and best practices in the industry.
