OPS OES Thailand offers an integrated service in oil-and gas development projects and Field Development Planning. Our G&G and RE team provides optimized development scenarios for on-and offshore fields in an efficient and timely fashion. Our people are familiar with most industry software. They work independently for our Clients, but will be closely interacting with and mentoring Client’s less experienced staff.

The development stage takes place after successfully completing the appraisal period and before the beginning of the field production. One of the main challenges for the industry includes determining the optimal way to develop and produce from an oil or gas field. Here, the Field Development Plan (FDP) comes in to provide the best technical solution and guide for optimizing the development and production of a field. FDP’s include all necessary information, on which economic decisions are being made by the oil and gas producing companies.


Using the reservoir numerical model is a key tool to determine the optimum techniques for recovery of the hydrocarbons from the reservoir. (Source Slide Share)

Optimal FDPs are generally very complicated, and need the input from multiple disciplines, often working individually, and integrating their results in the final report.

OPS OES provides teams of highly senior industry professionals to execute such Field Development Plan studies in a time-effective fashion.

Field Development Planning: Required skills for an integrated multidisciplinary FDP team.

In order to mitigate the uncertainty and inaccurate assessment of the field production rate, and ultimate recovery, OPS OES will only provide “peak” Reservoir and Production Engineers, who will be leading the FDP study.
