    Fundamentals of FDP with OilSim

    This Field Development Planning course provides participants with an opportunity to learn the fundamental approach for working and writing a Field Development Plan.  The plan is a document that is an output of a sequence of decision and discipline based tasks designed to come up with a development plan.  It is, also, a basis for coming up with a robust way of developing, producing, and maintaining hydrocarbon resources.  A Field Development Plan forms an input for designing associated surface facilities. Combined documents, both subsurface and surface, form the basis for the financial decision.

    The participants will be introduced to all of these concepts as they are applied to the process of coming up with a development plan in relation to the reservoir life cycle.  This course will acquaint engineers, geoscientists, and operating personnel with the basic techniques used by asset management teams. 

    This version of the course uitization of OilSim Simulator for hands on exercises in such a manner that the participants will be followimng the entire life cycle of field development by simulation
