This unit is a field development group project. Students evaluate the various technical aspects of a field to determine suitable production strategies. This includes an economic evaluation of the most suitable techniques to employ.
Students are able to (1) work effectively as a group to deliver on project objectives; (2) assimilate a range of field information to make reliable technical decisions; (3) apply relevant engineering techniques for designing subsea or land-based technologies; (4) design a production schedule; and (5) develop a related economic evaluation of field viability over the short, medium and long term.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) quizzes; (2) term project; and (3) final examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.
