OFM Intermediate Using Oil Operations Examples
Average client rating (based on 85 attendee reviews)
This course extends the work done in the Fundamentals course and introduces two key areas of functionality: forecasting and mapping.
Forecasting: OFM offers a highly interactive module for the user to history match and subsequently forecast production. The widely used Arps technique is covered, and you create forecasts using a variety of assumptions. In addition to single phase (oil, gas) forecasts, the course covers ratio forecasts. Additional techniques such as calculated forecasts, together with how to make effective use of the results are explained.
Mapper applications: While plots and reports are valid utilities for monitoring and surveillance, presenting data and calculation results in the form of a map is infinitely more effective. Vast amounts of information can be absorbed very quickly. The course introduces you to a wide variety of map-based visualizations – bubble, grid, contour, scatter and surface maps.
Waterflooding is a universally popular method of secondary recovery. For waterflood operations, all calculations need to be made on a reservoir volume basis. The course introduces PVT as a way of achieving this. Pattern creation and management techniques are now possible. A range of diagnostic techniques are introduced as a means of illustrating the underlying capabilities of the application.
