OFM software is used primarily by reservoir engineers and production engineers for production and injection surveillance, production analysis, and forecasting in oil and gas fields. Engineers can manage more wells in less time and efficiently optimize the production performance of an entire asset. The software enables basic and complex analyses for individual or multiple completions, groups of wells, an entire field, or several fields. The product also supports managers and decision makers in the overall management of the assets.
