On the other hand, many existing fields are getting depleted and becoming harder to produce. To name a few challenges faced – higher water rates to handle, increased need of artificial lift systems, old systems becoming obsolete with new technologies are emerging and new stricter environmental standards are forced. This makes it imperative to consider systematic periodic reviews of the existing facilities, addressing both their design and operational modes and methods. This will reduce costs of implementing modifications on the existing facilities set-up or utilized operational methods.

This Optimization of Oil and Gas Facilities Design and Operations training course is focused on recent methodologies to evaluate various upstream, midstream, and downstream facilities operation and design. The training course is enriched with real field cases, providing a step-by-step approach to assess a given field's existing facilities. It is also aimed for value engineering and optimizing the proposed design of new increments and field developments.
