This course examines the technical, fiscal and commercial elements which need to be considered and integrated at the various project development stages of an oil or gas field. The opportunities and pitfalls of Field Development Planning, the related activities and the sometimes conflicting priorities are explained. Against this background, the various decision gates throughout the field life cycle, from gaining access to opportunity through exploration, appraisal, development, early and late production to decommissioning are highlighted. A comprehensive hands on case study provides participants with practical exposure to the issues discussed, in particular the integration of reservoir, wells and engineering.
Course Duration: 5 days Course Level: Foundation / Skill Instructor: Frank Jahn
