GOMAN – The Gas & Oil Systems Optimizer
 Maximize NPV (discounted sum of revenues minus costs) from a targeted production profile in a planning horizon to generate optimal development and production plan
 Define onshore and offshore reserves of oil & gas to be produced
 Create model connecting reservoirs through surface processing facilities to markets
 Enter data for reservoirs and surface facilities: operating characteristics, existing capacities and allowed expansions
 Tailor user-defined oil production curves to represent cost-capacity relationship for oil
 Determine optimal development plan for gas reservoirs using Maraco’s GMAN.OPT, translate into cost-capacity relationship for gas
 Define details of surface facility expansions including Separators and
– For oil: Water processing and injection, gas lift, downhole pumps
– For gas: Compressors, gas processing and NGL plants
 Define CAPEX, OPEX, discount, escalation rates and other economic factors for all components of the system
 Define markets: Demand rates
– For oil: Price by grade, API and sulfur limits
– For gas: Price of sales gas, NGL
 Run optimization: cumulate revenues from sales of oil, gas and NGL (and sulfur), add operating and investment costs, maximize sum over time
 Plot-analyze results, report output through the graphic interface
 Make sensitivity runs, distribute economic summary reports
Economically optimizes development of oil and gas complexes – reservoirs producing through parallel gathering and processing facilities to one or more offtake points. Water & solution gas (AG) are separated from oil, which is then stabilized and graded for sale. Non-associated (NAG) gas passes through a separator. AG, NAG and stabilizer & separator bottoms flow into gas plants, which output acid gas (→ sulfur plant), sales gas & natural gas liquids (NGL). The latter is split into components in an NGL plant. Produced water is injected along with makeup water into water flooded reservoirs. Aramco, Kuwait Oil, Santos
