SPE International will be hosting a workshop in Perth, WA from 16-19 August at the Four Points by Sheraton. The workshop is titled “Integrated Production Modelling – Maximising Asset Value”.
Integrated production modelling has become increasingly important to the petroleum industry, as it is used to model the oil and gas production system. It combines reservoir, production and surface engineering modelling into an asset management tool that allows the simulation of the entire oil and gas system for generation of production forecasts, identification of optimisation opportunities, surveillance, and development planning. Production modelling when developed well leverages in maximised reservoir production potential, optimised production costs and asset value.
This workshop will focus on the key elements of integrated production modelling, best practices, case studies and lessons learnt.
Key areas to be covered include:
• Total production system pressure and energy analysis (from sand-face to sale-line) i.e. Problem identification
• Well production performance and modelling – history match and production sensitivity analysis e.g. Nodal analysis models
• Surface support facilities back-pressure optimisation e.g. Debottlenecking
• Life cycle well fluid gradient change and flow optimisation e.g. Artificial lift evaluation
• Offshore deepwater field complex production flow system analysis
• Minimum production system for marginal fields e.g. Optimum modelling benchmark
• Value of the integrated production systems and the role of engineers of different disciplines
• Sharing experiences about gathering systems debottlenecking, compression projects, pipeline sizing, development plans, etc.
• Understand uncertainties and limitations of the integrated production models
• Value of real-time field management using integrated production modelling
