Background Integrated Asset Modeling established methodology for asset performance Need to exploit further the integration philosophy through optimization Objectives Development of an optimization and integration tool to support daily operations Choke valve settings, well routing Separator pressure, reboiler temperature etc. Maximize asset performance objectives taking into account possible constraints Reservoir limits (minimum FBHP) Erosion velocity Process constraints Background and Objectives

Integration methodology Hypotheses Constant fluid composition for each well (independent from FTHP) Steady state conditions The tool is not able to reproduce time dependence effect like slugs, shut down or ramp up conditions Well performances such as Production Index PI, reservoir pressure are considered not time dependent The tool is not designed to have forecasts Boundaries of the system. The tool is designed to simulate asset performance from sand face to delivery point
