    Fundamentals of Field Development Planning (RILS)

    This course is designed as an RILS course and it provides participants with an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of Field Development Planning by discussing the workflow and the main elements.  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 and optimized 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
