Next-generation digital strategies and technologies for optimizing oil & gas assets

This is a half-day seminar on the theory and practice of modeling and optimization of oil and gas assets. The seminar will provide attendees with an understanding of the additional value that can be realized by using the right tools and techniques to optimize oil and gas assets. 

The seminar makes use of real case challenges and identifies the technology that is required to accurately predict and optimize these complex and challenging systems. It provides an in-depth understanding on the important topics of production optimization and integrated asset optimization. The floor will be open to questions throughout the session and there will be an opportunity to have a one-on-one discussion on your operational challenges after the seminar.


  • Overview of production and facilities optimization
  • Challenges faced by the industry
  • Case study lead examples
    • Production optimization
    • Facilities optimization
    • Integrated asset optimization
  • Overview of the theory behind the technology
  • Instrumentation, data and control requirements for the asset
  • One-on-one discussion 

APM Forum

This seminar is part of the 2018 Advanced Process Modeling Forum. The 2-day Forum will focus on the application of high-fidelity predictive process modeling and optimization to create sustainable value in the oil & gas and chemicals & petrochemicals sectors. A key focus will be the application of APM to many different aspects of digital process design and operation, as well as recent developments in PSE’s gPROMS APM technology.

This seminar can be attended as part of the larger APM Forum or as a standalone seminar for those interested only in oilfield asset optimization.


Dr. Malcolm Woodman started consulting for PSE in 2016, after more than 25 years with BP. For the last 10 years at BP, Malcolm was Project Manager, Program Manager and Technical Lead for the use of model-based optimization in BP Upstream. His key responsibility was the development of systems to allow the use of commercial production modeling packages for production optimization on the operating assets, not just by central modeling specialists. Malcolm is the author of many peer-reviewed journal papers and conference presentations, covering topics including three phase distillation, use of thermodynamics packages in industry, and production optimization.
