LOG904-145 Logistics in petroleum production
The aim of production logistics is to ensure a smooth course of the process within a value-adding system. The focus of this seminar is on the problems inherent in oil and gas industry. One of the key problems in the petroleum production is designing the infrastructure for the production site. We address the problem of field infrastructure design as a multiperiod mixed integer nonlinear model. Another issue, covered in this course, is optimizing the operating modes of the tools and machinery from technological, economic and ecological perspectives. Candidates will apply numerical algorithms for continuous non-linear optimization problems, and Branch-and-Bound algorithm for combinatorial problems. A selection of mathematical models, applied for technology of petroleum production and preliminary treatment will be introduced to the students.
As a prerequisite for taking the course, students are expected to have basic knowledge of mathematical modelling: linear and non-linear programming, as well as exact algorithms: Simplex and Branch-and-Bound.
A series of articles on process optimization for oil and gas production will be presented to the candidates.
