IAM Field Development Planning and Operations Software 2015.3 Now available
IAM field development planning and operations software provides model-based production and asset management for field development, operation planning, and on-demand optimization solutions for assets. IAM software integrates reservoir, production, process, and business management simulation models to enable advanced control and optimization.
IAM software delivers the ability to graphically build well management and reservoir group controls, along with the inclusion of downstream process facility models and field-wide economics.
IAM software continues to enhance the functionality and versatility of the IAM field development planning and operations software. The IAM software’s integration capabilities have been expanded to enable coupling with the INTERSECT simulator which passes the boundary conditions to the downstream simulator and gets back the well constraints to account for the back pressure. The ECLIPSE/INTERSECT adapter now is connected to Well Optimizer of the PIPESIM simulator to optimize the operating condition of chokes, ESPs, and gas lift systems among other facilities at every time step.
IAM software is targeted at the petroleum and flow assurance engineers in our clients organizations. Asset technology or engineering managers are often the first to recognize the benefit of a full-field model built by the collaborative efforts of their multi-disciplinary teams.
IAM software is useful for any new or existing large oil & gas development projects and may be crucial in assets where there are significant inter dependencies between multiple fields or multiple production domain silos (reservoir, network, process facilities) such as in heavy oil assets, assets with limited processing capabilities or aging assets where the surface gathering network and facilities are now sub-optimal because production rates have fallen over time.
IAM software applications include:
front end engineering & design (FEED) studies
pipeline network debottlenecking
artificial-lift evaluation and optimization
development drilling program planning
IAM software is also a key foundation for Asset Optimization as in recent integrated operations engagements. As well, IAM software is also part of the integrated solutions within OneSubsea in the concept, design and optimization of subsea production systems.
